Since the start of the season 2016-2017 the fieldhockey umpires of the Royal Belgian Hockey Association (Premier League) are working with the AXIWI communication system.
Thanks to the AXIWI communication system our umpires communicate quickly and easily, by the open line connection, during hockey games. They support each other in difficult game situations and take more correct decisions”.
The communication system is easy to use and provides the hockey umpires many advantages:
- Fast and easy communication between the umpires;
- Open line connection; through which you will not have to press a button to talk to each other;
- Umpires takes more correct decisions.
More confidence and more professional
Michael Pontus, head of the referees at the KBHB explains why: “We used to have a communication system where we had to press a button to talk to each other; a so called Push-to-Talk. It was not always easy to instantly communicate with each other, and in certain game situations it caused problems and referees made incorrect decisions.
AXIWI Communication System
The AXIWI communication system only weighs 39 grams, has a safety lanyard and a clothing clip. The communication system is powered by a rechargeable battery and has a service life of 8-12 hours. There are various headsets available. The AXIWI communication system allows five people to communicate with each other simultaneously, others can listen in or break into the conversation.
