What are the benefits of the “Pros” solution?
VOGO SPORT for “Pros” is an intuitive solution that can be used on a touch tablet and/or touch screen. It requires very little training. Professionals are therefore quickly autonomous. In addition, thanks to the use of ergonomic and wireless tablets, professionals can move comfortably on the edge of the field. They therefore gain in mobility.
Who uses the “Pros” solution?
To date, VOGO SPORT is first used by the medical staff of rugby clubs and leagues (French League of Rugby (LNR), European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR), French Federation of Rugby (FFR)…)
Rugby is a technical and tactical sport, but also a sport of impact, and above all a show! Players are permanently exposed to the risk of concussion, which is not always easy to detect. World Rugby foresees that competition organisers make available to clubs a video assistance device on the pitch allowing the review of images of the match during its progress, as a decision support tool within the framework of the concussion protocol (HIA).
Aware of these health issues and in accordance with the regulations on the “Concussion Protocol” (HIA), the National Rugby League signed a 4-year contract with VOGO in 2017 to cover all Top 14 and Pro D2 matches with its VOGO SPORT solution in the “Pros” version. VOGO has equipped all 30 stadiums in the 1st and 2nd divisions, and covers 480 matches per season. In order to be as effective as possible, each team doctor is assisted by a medical assistant (SVM). The match doctor also has a VOGO SPORT tablet, and the solution is also available on a touch screen in the HIA room.
VOGO is also setting up its medical solution for the Grand Finals and Semi-finals of the Top 14 and Pro D2, notably in stadiums such as the “Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux”, the “Groupama Stadium” in Lyon, the “Vélodrome d’Orange” in Marseille and the “Stade de France” in Paris. Finally, it is regularly used by the European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) for Champions Cup and Challenge Cup matches played in France and Russia, as well as by the French Rugby Federation (FFR) for “Tournée d’Automne” and “Six Nations” matches.
The VOGO SPORT solution can be used on a touch screen,
here in the HIA during an EPCR game.
In football, VOGO is working with FIFA and has implemented the VOGO SPORT “Pros” solution for medical staff and video analysts for the 104 matches of the FIFA U20 World Cup Poland 2019 and FIFA U17 World Cup Brazil 2019.
In addition to medical supervision, VOGO is extending its offer to a broader spectrum of professionals: referees, judges, video analysts, coaches, security, journalists, etc. The solution enables them to get closer to the action, support their judgments, and make fairer decisions. It is in the air of the times and rightly so. The company is already one of the suppliers referenced by FIFA for the video / VAR refereeing solution.
