Client Testimonials

  • They were the only ones who agreed to install their system in Beijing within 3 weeks and in Shanghai in 10 days! Guys did an amazing job considering all the distances… In Beijing Chinese install all the cables and wires so Latvians had just to install the system but in Shanghai they managed everything. This system qualifies for KHL, in total there are 3 systems produced on the market (that qualifies for KHL) – one by PlayGineering Systems, another two in Slovakia and Russia. Russians were not ready to install in such a short period and Russian system is 5 times more expensive.

    Vice Sports` Director
  • The referees of the Latvian Ice Hockey Federation have been successfully using the continuous recording solutions developed by PlayGineering Systems in matches of different leagues where video analysis of scoring may be necessary. The solutions developed by the company provide our referees with full functionality and performance, high image resolution and operational stability, all of which are important preconditions for objective decision-making by referees during the match. We are pleased to know that the product of such a technological level is produced in Latvia and we certainly recommend the use of Re-Play Ice hockey to other European clubs and leagues.

    Maris Balodnieks
    SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE LATVIAN ICE HOCKEY FEDERATION
  • The instant replay solution which was created by PlayGineering Systems is rather mobile for being used in such multifunctional arenas as Arena Riga. Setup and maintenance process takes just a couple of hours and is effective. It can be accomplished during the short periods of time between the events taking place at the arena and sport events requiring the system.

    Edgars Buncis
    CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD AT ARENA RIGA LTD.
  • ChaulaTV is an interactive HD quality streaming TV channel. As the professional TV content and technical solution developers, we highly appreciate work with PlayGineering systems, their innovative approach, and the quality of recorded material. Applied formats altogether with Full HD quality are ideally suited for professional television broadcasting without additional conversion, time, and eventual quality loss. Therefore we strongly recommend this system to increase the visual attractiveness of that dynamic sport, delivering valuable content to their numerous fans.

    Janis Vaisla
    MANAGING DIRECTOR OF CHAULA TV
  • In our first season we get a great opportunity to equip all our technical support positions according the latest technical standards that are available in ice hockey world at the present moment. It relates to video referee system from PlayGineering Systems as well. We are satisfied with its quality, functionality and pricing, as well as the fact that it can be serviced by a local company. We are also glad that we were able to upgrade the system to keep up with league’s new requirements without replacing the whole system, therefore saving a considerable amount of money. We are confident that PlayGineering Systems is a company we can rely on.

  • The “DINAMO RIGA” hockey club is already in its fourth season in the Kontinental Hockey League. Previously, we used another video recording system to replay the incidents, but during our second season in the league we began using the innovative solution, Re-Play Ice hockey, provided by PlayGineering systems.
    We are highly satisfied with our choice, as it meets all our needs.
