XOS Digital, Inc., a global provider of sports video technology, today announced that it is providing the Sun Belt Conference with the first conference-wide multi-channel replay system in high-definition for college football. XOS will implement the system for the Sun Belt Conference in time for the 2012-2013 college football season. The announcement was made today by Chris McCleary, XOS Digital's CEO, and Sun Belt Commissioner Karl Benson.
The Sun Belt Conference's transition from standard definition to the XOS HD ReplayTM system for football will provide a higher video quality to support efficiency in the officials' review process. XOS Digital developed the system using the core multi-channel technology found within its Hurricane slow-motion instant replay system, which college teams use for in-venue live production.
"XOS Digital's HD replay technology will significantly enhance our replay officials' ability to provide more accurate reviews," said Don Lucas, Sun Belt Coordinator of Football Officials. "Leveraging the highest video quality available to improve our ability to provide the best review possible is of the utmost importance to our conference."
"Providing our officials with this technology will mean that the Sun Belt Conference is on the cutting edge when it comes to instant replay in collegiate football," Benson said.
XOS HD Replay features an integrated paging system for on-field communication, production-quality video cards, and automated video and data export capabilities from the system to media delivery platforms. For the Sun Belt Conference, the system's multiple HD channels will provide officials with direct access to multiple camera angles. Overall, it provides for five channels of record and playback.
"The goal is to enable Sun Belt replay officials to make more accurate reviews, more quickly than ever before," McCleary said. "We are committed to providing advanced video technologies to the sports market, and take pride in our innovative replay solutions."
