Riedel's RefBox Video Review System Now Certified

News Image
Riedel Communications has announced that its RefBox video review system has been certified as part of the FIFA Quality Programme for Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR) technology.

The certification affirms the system's compliance with FIFA's rigorous standards for quality, latency, and synchronicity and underscores Riedel's dedication to advancing fairness and transparency in sports through technological innovation.

FIFA, the international governing body of association football, has implemented the FIFA Quality Programme, which is aimed at improving the game and protecting the players, clubs, and associations by endorsing products that comply with the highest safety and quality standards. Riedel's achievement of the FIFA Quality certification authorizes professional football competitions, leagues, and federations to use the Riedel RefBox video review to fulfill their VAR and VAR Light requirements over the next four years.

Over the course of three days, Riedel's multicamera review system underwent a series of thorough tests evaluating its video feeds' synchronicity and latency, as well as the video quality of the VAR system output – and passed all tests with flying colors.

"We are pleased that we could demonstrate that our VAR solution more than lives up to the high standards of FIFA's Quality Programme and are very much looking forward to being able to offer RefBox to a wider audience," said Matthias Czastrau, Product Manager, Strategy and Innovation. "We take pride in playing our part in enhancing the integrity of the sport by empowering the officials on and off the pitch with reliable and intuitive solutions. And now, with FIFA-Quality-certified VAR and FIFA-IAAP-listed referee communications solutions in our portfolio, we are cementing our position as a trusted technology partner for football leagues, clubs, and broadcast service providers worldwide."
