Aberdeen based AVC Immedia, acquired in September 2016 by Immedia Group Plc, will take part in the FIFA Under 20 World Cup in South Korea later this month as part of the FIFA working party to capture content from the tournament.
AVC Immedia will also be involved in post event work to create video learning tools aimed at encouraging the development of the “beautiful game” at youth level.
AVC Immedia has also licensed its proprietary software Matchviewer to FIFA for capturing game analysis and key incidents during tournaments, predominantly video clips that are logged securely and then accessed by FIFA delegates regardless of proximity to the tournament.
AVC Immedia Managing Director Spencer Buchan commented: “This is fantastic news; AVC first attended the Mexico 86 FIFA World Cup and we have worked consistently with FIFA as a global partner on many projects since then. The remit for what we do has changed from tournament to tournament; in Korea we will be filming at the games to create content for post tournament development purposes.
“AVC Immedia was selected from other partners across the world to attend so we are very proud to continue our long standing relationship with FIFA.”
