Welcome to Atlas VideoRef, a video refereeing (arbitrage video) system designed by fencing referees. We hope that you share our dream of a fair and precise fencing refereeing. A few years ago this dream required the investment of thousands of Euros in expensive video production equipment to be able to obtain instant video replay of sport images. With the use of the Atlas video refereeing software package you will be able to offer instant replay of the fencing actions to referees using inexpensive consumer video and computer equipments.

Atlas VideoRef was specifically designed with the following requirements in mind:

  • Low cost
  • Built with easy to find components
  • Highly configurable
    • from low-end club use to high-end fully FIE compatible
    • with respect to the components used (camera's, scoring devices, PC's, ...)
  • Easy to use
  • Allow internet streaming

Atlas VideoRef is essentially a software package. We do not supply the hardware (camera, PC, tripod, ...) because we think that you can probably purchase it locally at better cost than we can. Moreover, depending on what you already have and the intented use, there is a broad range of possible set-up's. We will provide you with a set of recommended hardware and we'll offer remote support for the initial installation.

For use during official FIE competitions, we require at least one Alas cerified operator to be present. We do provide a full competition service with our own high-end equipment. For more information, please use the contact form.

The instruction manual contains all the information you’ll need to purchase and install the hardware required to run Atlas VideoRef system, as well to install the software. You can receive this manual upon simple request, using the contact form on the left hand side of this page. It’s always a good idea to ask a technical assistant for help if you have not installed video equipment before.

We think it should take you approximately 1 hour to complete installation. Please register your Atlas VideoRef software when downloading software updates. We would love to keep you updated on new software updates and new features for your Atlas VideoRef system. Perhaps you can even send us your suggestions for improvements to the software. We are constantly working on new features and improvements, so we would love to hear from you!
