Complex technique and performance measurement system DigiTrainer

Complex technique and performance measurement system DigiTrainer

Made in: Hungary

Model: DigiTrainer

Type: trainers for rowers

Complex technique and performance measurement system, it contains a GPS, heart rate monitor, and an accelerometer which can measure the movement of the boat in all three directions. From the data collected, parameters such as stroke rate, stroke power, boat stability, speed, distance, heart rate can easily be observed. Most of this information is also displayed in real time on the instrument, helping the athletes improve their technique and performance during training.

Course Lane Marking System certified by FISA and ICF

Course Lane Marking System certified by FISA and ICF

Made in: Hungary

Model: Albano

Type: main equipment for rowing channels

This system utilizes longitudinal wires for the marking of the rowing or canoeing race course lanes and has become universally used over the years. It possible to convert the race course between rowing and canoe—kayak arrangements in a matter of hours.

The Lane Marking System general advantages:
— The design is always adopted to local circumstances by our skilled engineer staff.
— The course can be converterd within a few hours, which makes it possible to organize canoe—kayak and rowing races right after each other.
— It is compatible with the Starting System.
— Water level following wire design practically makes the system insensitive against the race course water level variations
— Besides the lane marking buoys, the system includes all other race course marking materials required by the rules, such as flag buoys and numbered buoys at the finish line
— Corrosion proof materials ensure durability and long lifetime

Rowing start light system RowLux

Rowing start light system RowLux

Made in: Hungary

Model: RowLux

Type: main equipment for rowing channels
RowLux system provides visual and acoustic signals to maximally support the judges in the conduction of the complex start procedure. It makes the communication between the athletes and judges straightforward in the start—zone and gives as equal chanes for each boat as posible.
The signal posts are placed on the start pontoon, one for each lane. The four light signals from top to bottom: yellow light, number display, red light and green light. The control box is installed in the starting tower and it can also operate the Polaritas automatic start system.

Main features:
Good visibility even in bright sunlight;
Separate signal post for each rowing lane:
— "Attention" and "Start" lights
— "Warning", "Disqualified" and "False start" signals
— Lane number or boat number display
— Start and false start sound signals
Control panel and indicator lights for the starter judge;
Signal lights and controls for the aligner judge:
— "Start gate area empty"
— "Ready to start"
— "False start request"
The signals can be adapted if competition rules change;
Can be synchronized to the automatic start system;
Can be used separately from the start system.

Start gate camera system

Start gate camera system

Made in: Hungary

Model: Aligner's View

Type: main equipment for rowing channels
Robust, weather proof cameras are mounted on each post of the start machine close to the start gates. The live video streams are transferred to the connected computer in the control tower where the judges can view the closeup video of each gate simultaneously. This camera system, together with the transparent start gates, gives the judges the opportunity to check wether each boat is exactly on the start line. The judges in the control tower can easily observe the events close to and inside the gates.

During the rowing start there are two phases of the start procedure when the camera system can help the judges:

1. Before the raising of the gates. At this time the area above the gates must be empty. The judge in the aligners' hut observes the screen and informs the control tower that the area is clear.
2. The gates are raised and are on the water surface. The judge observes the tips of the racing boats entering into the start gates and instructs the athletes to paddle into the correct position.

During canoeing start the procedure is similar to phase—2 of rowing.

Start Line video system

Start Line video system

Made in: Hungary

Model: StartVideo

Type: main equipment for rowing channels
The StartVideo is the recommended tool for evaluating events at the rowing or canoeing start line. Using a touch panel computer with a camera on the start line, the StartVideo system helps the starter judges in the evaluation of false starts.

Within a few seconds after the start, the starter judges can easily obsere the events by the instant playback of the recorded video clip. By the use of the touch monitor, the video clips can be played forward or reverse, slow motion or even frame—by—frame. Using this interactive tool, the starter has the opportunity to make a quick decision about the start event and can stop the race if necessary. The recorded video clips are stored on a hard drive, ordered by heat number and marked as good or false start. The system can also be used in VCR mode, which records the start line evetns continuously, just like a conventional video recorder.
