videoReferee® is a class of specialized multi-channel systems for officiating sport events, providing a way to resolve complicated game situations. It also creates a video-document of the entire event.
The system works with official time, score and game log from the scoreboard control system and is compatible with most controllers (Nautronic, Westerstrand, Megalux, Omega). Presently it is mainly used in ice hockey and basketball games and fully complies with provisions of the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) and the NBA. Additionally modifications for fencing and speed skating are available.
The system supports up to 2 workspaces for referees (including video monitor and remote control console), which allow a detailed view of all disputed moments, marking them, zoom in, and follow the game action in real time from 4 cameras simultaneously. At the end of the event the system automatically generates a DVD report with all contentious moments and score changes. For ice hockey we offer a specially designed wireless goal-net camera, based on a Sony Exmor© sensor. Our Goal-Net Camera Kits are designed to provide a full view of the goal zone from inside the goal net and are optimized for videoReferee®. The camera is installed inside the goal net in a special housing, which protects it against direct hits and is moisture resistant. The high quality of the camera image is suitable for TV broadcasts.
