Net Insight has been selected by a leading telco company who will deploy a nationwide Video Assistant Referee network (VAR) for the national football federation.
Net Insight will deliver the media transport platform Nimbra, connecting 19 football stadiums to a main central location for a centralised VAR system integrated with an intercom service.
VAR networks is a trend that is taking off globally and Net Insight believes it fits the Nimbra platform very well. The technology is currently being deployed at the FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia, where it is used in the four match-changing situations; penalties, goals, direct red cards and mistaken identity.
The implementation of the order, which includes products as well as services and exceeds a value of €1m, will take place in Q3 2018.
“We look forward to working side by side with our partner and the telecommunication company to ensure a successful and timely launch of this new video assistance referee network,” said Henrik Sund, CEO of Net Insight. “As true partners we want to share our experiences of the media market and support the partner and telco in achieving and exceeding their ambitions now and in the future.”
