What is Omega as the Official Timekeeper of the Olympic Games doing?

 

 

BASKETBALL

In basketball, Omega has implemented the timing system that measures the minutes and seconds of the entire game. There is also a 24 second “shot clock” that counts down the seconds until a player must shoot the ball. OMEGA has also provided a whistle detection system. This is operated via a microphone connected to the referee. When the microphone detects the whistle’s noise, the system automatically stops the clock.

  • Alexander, you do such a great job with this post . I look forward to reading it daily. Thank you sir.

  • Thank you for a the detailed photographic description of the equipment used to fairly adjudicate these games and how it is used. Being a fairly competitive sailor and skier I appreciate accurate and fair equipment to determine results. I don’t mean to say people cheat but they will often make misjudge their own performance. Line calling in tennis is best left to an impartial never blinking never distracted machine.

    Love the blog! Guy

  • Though it is being done under Omega brand, the actual timing as well as record-keeping is being done by Swiss Timing, a sister company of Omega.
