The one I saw was controlled via a tablet, so it was all touch-screen based. There may have been a separate remote for starting and stopping the clock. I wouldn't be shocked if there's a way to start and stop the clock via the space bar if operating with a laptop. The software for automated track and field timing systems has that feature.Reminds me of my old high school football scoreboard clock when I was in grade school. I could tell time on a regular clock in the first grade, but could never figure out how to read the football dial with respect to time left.
Found a learning video on one of these scoreboards. The basketball display looks pretty traditional and is easily visible. Running the controller on a laptop (starts at 1:30 mark) is another matter. Maybe the whippersnappers will catch on quick, but I'm guessing there's a significant learning curve for traditional board operators, especially starting/stopping/resetting the shot clock with the mouse:
