Media services provider dock10 is providing a Match Centre, including a dedicated viewing and edit/send facility for the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd (PGMOL). This enables the PGMOL to have instant access to multi-game footage and respond immediately to questions arising from incidents.
dock10 has created a purpose built viewing set up in their studio and post production facility in MediaCityUK, Salford, allowing a team of match officials to view all Premier League matches simultaneously. The referees, including former refs Dermot Gallagher and Howard Webb, have been trained to capture, clip up and upload all incidents.
Paul Austin (pictured), head of post production and content at dock10 commented: “We are now offering AVID Central UX to many clients and this is a perfect example of one of the many workflow efficiencies it can offer. We are thrilled to be providing the PGMOL with this service as we have been able to combine the latest technology, our in-house support services and our expertise in sports broadcasting.”
