The 2017 IHF World Men's Handball Championship was the 25th event hosted by the International Handball Federation. The event was held in France from 11 to 29 January 2017.
The IHF Men’s Handball World Championships in France were one of the best covered handball tournaments ever. During the competition videoReferee® was the overall video judging system and used at all venues. Beginning with the semi-final the last four games, including the final match, were covered with a 20 channel videoReferee® system, giving the referees as much viewing angles as never before. The videoReferee® had access to 8 signals from system-specific cameras located directly at the field and in the goals. Since the host broadcaster during the finals used more cameras as originally planned (including a flying camera), it was self-evident for the videoReferee® team to make these additional signals accessible to the referees for judging purposes. To fulfil this goal the number of camera signals retrieved from the OB Van was increased to 12 signals.
