Frequently asked questions
Application - features
You can create video clips from your match very easily and quickly. You will just mark interesting moments and the application will create video clips automatically.
There are 2 ways how you can tag/mark your situations:
1) Use the App its feature “Live Recording” – If it is possible for you to have your device (phone/tablet/laptop) in your hands, than all you need is just the App.
2) Use the RECORDER device – Its fine for all referees who needs to focus on the match and have time just to press one button on the small device attached to the shorts/trousers/arm. You can just transfer your marked situations to the App after the match.
The app will use your timestamp and show you the video clip before you’ve marked the situation by pressing the button. So your video clip will start, for example, 15 seconds before you tagged the situation and therefore you will see some time backwards.
You can use realy any video capture of the game what you have. Nevertheless if you recorder your match on your own on your phone, you got the recording on the USB memory from the home team, or you downloaded from YouTube or any other videostreaming web.
Your tagging/marking of situations is totally independent from the video recording of the match. That is why, you can use any video of the match as a source for your video clips.
This universality brings one task for you, as a user of the REF.REC App. You are supposed to set a synchronization manually – It means just find a start of the match in the video recording of the match. More precisely, you will just point the moment, when you started your recording (either withing the App using the feature “Live Recording” or usinng the external device RECORDER).
The application use for your clips the last 15 seconds before you pressed a record button (-15, +0).
You can change this time preference anytime in a section Settings – a default start time at the beginning of the videoclip (e.g. -30 seconds) and a default end time at the end of the videoclip (e.g. + 5 seconds).
Referees can share their videos to the Community in Videoclip detail screen. It means that all referees of the same kind of sport can watch this videoclip in the Video section – see the tab Community.
You can share your video clips in 3 ways:
1) Sharing a video clip via URL link – use a button “Share” and the web-link will be copied into your clipboard. Then share it via mail, Whatsapp, Messenger, whatever way you use with your mates.
2) Sharing into the Referee Community – Just switch on the toggle “Share into Community”. Please provide a proper category of your videoclip in order let other referees to filter videos correctly. Thanks!
(+ Of course you can download any your video vlip in MP4 file into your device and then do whatever you want…)
Yes, you can share your entire match and all videos included to anyone. The recepient does not need to have an account or to be logged in.
Click a button “Share this match and all its videos” which appears once you click the “3-dots icon”. This icon is located on 2 places:
– In a section MATCHES, more precisely on a screen Match detail screen, in the tab Situations.
– In a section VIDEOS, at the end of particular match headline.
(in both cases, only if you already created a match and added some situations and provided a recording of the match)
You can easily filter and search your videos and videos inside the Community.
Use filter and watch several videos on the same topic (e.g. hand ball situation) and improve your skills!
If the game-video-capture was stoped&run by cameramen, there is a cut. In this case your clips after this break will show you incorrect situations.
There is a feature “Resynchronisation” in the application in order to figure this out. You can use one of your clips and find the proper time when this situation really happened.
We recommend you to save one of your regular situations at the beginning of another period of the game (e.g. just before a kick off at the beginning of 2nd period in soccer) and then you can easily use this clip for resync. You can point this clip according to long time-gap of this clip and previous one (becuase of the break between periods).
Yes. There is an icon in the right bottom corner of videoframe. Click on it and choose a different speed from the list. Or you can use keyboard and press the arrow UP (for faster speed) and the arrow DOWN (for slower speed).
You can set the app into following languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Polish, Czech, Slovak, Chinese, Italian, Croatian and Bulgarian.
Your mobile device should have iOS version 12+ or Android OS version 4.4+. For data (situations) transfer from the RECORDER, your device is supposed to have NFC (near field communication) – the same as you might use for payment via Apple Wallet or Google Pay in stores at the cash register
The RECORDER (device)
We recommend to start recording exactly before a start of the game. For example exactly before kick off the game, when camera is already running. This moment you will find in a video-recording in order to se synchronization of data from your RECORDER and game video recording.
Once you finish your game, it is needed to transfer your saved moments to the Application via NFC. Use mobile application, go to Match detail and press a button “Transfer”. Then just put your mobile phone on front side of RECORDER. The same way as we pay with our phones in the shops.
The battery is able to record many hours, many matches.
The RECORDER supports 400 situation records and 10 hours of recording.
The RECORDER is charged via micro-USB connector. It is very widely used. We don’t want to send this cable to every buyer automatically, when most of us already have such a cable. That would unnecessarily increase the price of the RECORDER for no reason.
The RECORDER should be OK with some light rain. Referees of soccer and other outdoor sport can use the RECORDER. A charging connector is placed on bottom side of the RECORDER.
