Champion Data integrates Bluefish444’s Epoch into their Viz Engine workstations
Champion Data has been working in the world of sports data, capture, analytics and distribution for over 20 years. Over that time, they have worked with rugby league, cricket, netball, horse racing, golf, soccer, and have been the official data partner for their key market, AFL, since 1999. Recently, the company decided to integrate Bluefish444’s Epoch | 4K Supernova S+ into their pre-existing Viz Engine 3.11. workstations as part of its 2019 hardware upgrade cycle.
Andrew Mott, broadcast and design manager at Champion Data (no relation to the Bluefish Managing Director, Craige Mott), explains the decision: “Having personally worked with Bluefish for many years, two things really stand out when it comes to their products. The outstanding quality and reliability that their products bring, and the local support here in Australia.”
Being local in Melbourne, Andrew Mott mentions that it makes the process easy for any support they need for integration or issues that arise. “We’ve always had a great relationship with Bluefish. They have great local support and are always open to suggestions and feedback to create a better product for both companies.” Andrew Mott continues, “BlueInfo and the other bundled SDK tools makes Bluefish cards easy to use, with things like card temperature, input ID, video mode and other data helps the technicians on-site diagnose and troubleshoot any problems.”
