The company will use 14 high-speed cameras located around the pitch as part of its' GoalControl-4D system. The system, if successful, will also be used at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil (FIFA). The AP reported FIFA chose GoalControl over three rival projects: "GoalRef and Cairos, which both use magnetic fields; and Hawk-Eye, another camera system."
