With videoReferee referees have access to up to 16 camera signals in HD and 4K quality. During the competition, all signals can be viewed and marked simultaneously throughout continuous recording. videoReferee offers organisers and referees unprecedented opportunities to clarify controversial situations, thus ensuring more fairness during competitions.
With videoReferee the marking of a dubious situation can be done by the referee directly or can be triggered by scoreboards or additional tools. Using the controller, individual channels can be selected or special situations can be searched and marked – all in realtime.
The operator can mark situations during live recording or by accessing previously recorded material. The users can choose between the simultaneous view of all channels, single view or zoom view. Using videoReferee it is possible to export marked scenes to DVD or MP4 file for backup purposes as well as to record entire sport events. Additionally, teams participating in tournaments can review the recorded material for training purposes.
