Vicareo was proud to be part of the 2016 MasterCard Memorial Cup. Special thanks to the City of Red Deer, the Red Deer Rebels organization, participating teams, and most of all the officials who did tremendous job introducing the REFCAM helmet into the junior hockey world.
The Memorial Cup is the premier junior ice hockey club championship for the Canadian Hockey League (CHL). It features a four-team, round-robin style tournament between the three CHL member leagues: The Ontario Hockey League (OHL), the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) and the Western Hockey League (WHL). These three leagues represent 60 teams across nine Canadian provinces and four American states. The Memorial Cup is often seen as a preview of some of the preeminent National Hockey League (NHL) talent to come, with recent MVPs including Taylor Hall of the Edmonton Oilers, Milan Lucic of the Los Angeles Kings and Corey Perry of the Anaheim Ducks
“We could not be more excited for the RefCam HD-I to have been involved with the broadcast of the Memorial Cup,” says Chris Stramacchia, Founder of Vicareo Systems Inc. “The RefCam HD-I delivered incredible live shots of the faceoff and live-action goal shots. As the games progressed, the league has gained confidence in the reliability and superb image quality and used the live feed repeatedly.”
