Video in refereeing moves forward with FIBA13 September 2016
FIBA, the International Basketball Federation, deployed EVS’ Xeebra video refereeing system for use at two of the three 2016 FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournaments (OQTs), in Italy and in Serbia, and the product is now on showcase at IBC. The real-world implementation of the system at the FIBA events came as EVS was also officially approved as a technical partner of FIBA’s Equipment and
Venue Centre. At IBC, EVS and FIBA have partnered to showcase the system as part of the #EVSlamDunk Experience.
“We needed to provide our officials with the best tools to allow them to make the right decisions regarding the Instant Replay situations quickly,” said Carl Jungebrand, head of refereeing, FIBA. “That’s why we’re so pleased about our technical partnership with EVS: it means we were able to implement its Xeebra system into this important moment in our sport.”
