Once again, IMT Vislink helped to deliver compelling looks and incredible angles at a high-profile sporting event.
IMTDragonFly transmitters and diversity receive systems powered Vicareo RefCam™ units that were worn by referees at the Alabama-Clemson matchup of the 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship on January 6th. RefCams were affixed to four referees’ hats, providing a similar camera view as the refs’ own line of sight. The cameras were worn by the line judge, field judge, side judge, and back judge. The CFP National Championship game, broadcast by ESPN, took place at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, CA.
The RefCams were among the featured specialty cameras used to provide 17 additional viewing options that enhanced game coverage. Read more about the camera innovations used at the game at this link.
The IMTDragonFly solution is a proprietary miniaturized RF system. It was designed to support demanding sports and entertainment applications that require ultra-compact equipment form factors and reliable, high-quality, long-range performance.
