With the start of the 2019/2020 season, major changes were adopted related to the increase in the number of video cameras used to review controversial moments during the game.
According to the latest regulations update, effective February 1, 2020, all KHL hockey arenas must be equipped with four HD (High Definition) video cameras with 1080i or 1080p resolution with a frame rate of no less than 50 fps (frames per second).
The cameras must be installed in such a way that the entire ice rink area, including the protective nets behind the boards, penalty benches, team benches and timekeeper booths, are within the field of view of the cameras. Each camera follows a quarter of the playing area (two cameras per half the rink).
As the leading company in the field of game control and sport statistic systems, ColosseoEAS upgraded its Video Goal Judge solution to serve the needs of KHL clubs for the new changes in KHL technical regulations.
Existing KHL club Colosseo customers were upgraded to the newest version to fufill the latest requirements. Among the upgrades were – Arena Metallurg (club Metallurg Magnitogorsk), Arena Riga (club Dinamo Riga), CSKA Arena(clubs CSKA Moscow and Spartak Moscow).
