MediaCityUK-based dock10 is going to provide a match centre with a dedicated viewing and edit/send facility for the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd (PGMOL).
Run by general manager Mike Riley and supported by former-referees, PGMOL will have instant access to multi-game footage and be able to respond to questions arising from key incidents straight away.
dock10 delivers productions for all the major UK broadcasters and many independent production companies; including The Voice, Dragon’s Den, Match of the Day, Blue Peter, The Jeremy Kyle Show and Countdown.
Head of post production and content, Paul Austin said: “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.”
dock10 has built a purpose built viewing set up in their studio and post production facility in MediaCityUK, so a small team of match officials can view all Premier League matches simultaneously. The referees, including former top-flight referees Dermot Gallagher and Howard Webb following the announcement of his decision to retire from refereeing last week, have been trained to be able to capture, clip up and upload all incidents.
