EVS' AI-driven offside line technology certified by FIFA

Quality Programme for Virtual Offside Lines (VOL)

EVS, a provider of live video technology for broadcast and new media productions, announced that its AI-driven offside line technology has successfully completed FIFA’s Quality Programme for Virtual Offside Lines (VOL). The FIFA Quality Standard certification for VOL, highlights the accuracy and consistency of the EVS solution.

EVS took part in two independently run testing events in September 2019, hosted by LaLiga clubs Getafe CF and CD Leganés, that examined both the 2D positioning of the offside line and the 3D body positioning of the players. Over the two days, 40 different match situations were tested with two cameras for each situation to determine the accuracy of the offside line.

This VOL certification provides validation that EVS’ offside line technology meets a certain set of standards and can deal with the complexities that come with precisely determining the offside line. And since this technology is fully integrated with EVS’ multi-camera review system Xeebra, it also means EVS can apply for future tenders from FIFA – as well as from other leagues and federations – that include the offside line with VAR.
