At the start of the 2013-14 season Eredivisie launched an ambitious project aimed at improving the quality, consistency and commercial value of television coverage of Dutch football. A central broadcast hub at the Amsterdam headquarters of its chosen production company, Endemol, was constructed to deliver core functions such as on-air graphics operations, content management, storage and logging in conjunction with a play-out centre 17 kilometres away.

Reality Check Systems is responsible for providing a comprehensive match graphics service using custom-built software, flexible data management applications and powerful Vizrt graphics engines. At the heart of the system is a bespoke RCS application with an intuitive, easy-to-use operator interface and automated data-handing developed to meet the client’s demand that the service be operable by staff with no previous television or graphics experience.
