RefCam Collection


for Referees and Umpires


Refcam imageA Refcam is a wearable camera for referees and umpires that officials wear to record their games. These cameras are still a relatively new creation and they are evolving rapidly. You will find them in helmets, on jerseys and on hats. More ideas will come as each sport finds new ways to assist its officials.

While RefCam is just the name that I decided sounded coolest for the page, these cameras can also be called UmpCam, BodyCam and HatCam. You can be sure there will be other names as the years progress, so you can call them whatever suits you best. I think it is pretty exciting to watch games up close and personal through the eyes of the officials. The future holds much excitement as the world of sport utilizes new devices and technologies to help their officials make the right call.

The Refcam Collection is filled with exciting, entertaining and educational posts from a variety of different sports. They are all posts with referees and umpires using Refcams and other wearable technologies. Officials from hockey, baseball, football, cricket, and more, show you the game through their eyes. The future has just begun and this technology is leading the way. It is here to stay, so we will be seeing more and more Refcams used on the television broadcasts and internet streaming services. It is pretty exciting to imagine such huge events as World Cups, Superbowls and maybe even Olympic competitions possibly giving Refcams a try someday.
