IMT VISLINK TO PRESENT PAPER ON HIGH-SPEED CONTENT CAPTURE FOR MAXIMUM SLOW-MOTION IMPACT WITH GRASS VALLEY AND NEP AT NAB 2019

David Edwards, Product Manager at IMT Vislink; Bart van Dijk, Product Manager at Grass Valley and Willian Norris, Head of RF at NEP Group Discuss New Wireless Camera System

LAS VEGAS, MARCH 19, 2019 — IMT Vislink will present its joint paper with Grass Valley and NEP at a Broadcast Engineering and Information Technology Conference session during NAB 2019 on Wednesday, April 10 from 9:40 a.m. to 10 a.m. PDT in room N260. The paper, titled “High-Speed Content Capture for Maximum Slow-Motion Impact – Set Free from Cables,” describes the impact of balancing spatial and temporal clarity alongside the rollout of high dynamic range (HDR) and also considers the limitations of data bandwidth.

“IMT Vislink, Grass Valley and NEP recently partnered to develop a wireless camera system that combines enhanced story-telling with the flexibility, camera resource efficiency and innovative production values that come from using wireless cameras for immersive video,” says David Edwards, product manager, IMT Vislink. “We first trialed this solution in the UK at Cheltenham Racecourse and are excited to share our findings during the speaking session at NAB. Each one of these companies brings expertise and innovative solutions to the broadcast market and we have a lot to share about our continued research.”

The joint paper written by Edwards; Bart van Dijk, product manager, Grass Valley; and William Norris, head of RF, NEP Group, proposes the employment of frame rates of up to 150fps across time-interleaved UHD infrastructure, while also exploring the deployment and operational affordability of implementing a high frame rate, slow motion HD system that enables full slow-motion effects in conjunction with real-time video presentation. Each company has worked together to develop a real-world video capture solution.

Wireless camera systems deliver flexibility to the broadcaster or producer. With a wireless camera, broadcasters can go anywhere without trailing wires behind them, which helps content creators be in the right place at the right time to create drama and avoid safety risks. Wireless cameras offer the freedom to seek out creative, more immersive perspectives without having to install complex infrastructures.

A high-quality wireless camera transmitter, such as IMT Vislink’s HCAM, delivers a wide variety of video formats, including 4K, 4K HDR and HD HDR and can be a valuable tool during production. Using a multi-format capable transmitter along with a low-latency receiver allows for unique angles to be captured in the field. 4K, HD and HD HDR wireless cameras deliver a quality that matches wired studio cameras with latencies that allow seamless production. With this new wireless camera system from these broadcast leaders, high frame rate video content can be transmitted from the location to the production suite reliably, with minimal latency over distance and within the readily available RF spectrum.

IMTDRAGONFLY TRANSMITTER SHOOTS AND SCORES AT CHAMPIONS HOCKEY LEAGUE FINAL

Movicom Referee Camera Solution Takes Audience Inside the Glass, Helping Them Connect to all the Thrilling Action

GOTHENBURG, SWEDEN, MARCH 14, 2019 — When the puck dropped on the Champions Hockey League final last month, IMT Vislink and Movicom teamed up with Infront Sports & Media, the exclusive commercial and TV partner of the CHL, to provide a compact referee camera solution that gave ice-level points-of-view during the game between the Frölunda Indians and Red Bull Munich at the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Movicom Refcam system used for this event included a mini-camera, specially designed camera mount, IMTDragonfly wireless camera transmitter and the Vislink 2 input H.264 receiver with Fanbeam antennas to deliver solid coverage throughout the arena.

Throughout the game, cameras were remotely controlled by RCP from the OB van using Movicom’s proprietary wireless telemetry channel. “Bringing the audience closer, helping them stay connected to the action and providing an ‘inside experience’ is one of the most thrilling aspects of today’s sports broadcasting,” says Victor Pakhomov, CEO, Movicom. “Through our productive cooperation with Vislink, we are proud to help Infront’s broadcast partners meet these goals and enhance their productions.”

The lightweight kit (only 7 oz/190 g) can be neatly and easily attached to referees’ personal helmets, without wires, thereby eliminating any discomfort for the user. It can be mounted on most helmets, including in hockey, horseracing and American football. This POV system also bears the possibilities of being arranged as a chest- or glass-cam solution. Quickly installed and remote controllable within two-mile distance, the Refcam provides a unique visual experience that brings viewers closer to the action.

“Our wireless technology is ideal for integration in innovative bodyworn solutions such as the Movicom Refcam,” says John Payne, President and COO of Vislink Technologies. “We are committed to delivering systems that help put audiences at the heart of the action as it happens, allowing them to engage with their favorite sports in unprecedented ways.”

He continued, “We look forward to showing the IMTDragonFly as well as our full range of solutions for live production at this year’s NAB 2019 event in Las Vegas, NV, where we will be welcoming attendees to our booth (C6008).”

The IMTDragonFly Transmitter is a miniature wireless video transmission system designed to capture real-time, high-quality video from UAV/UGV/Body Cams/Concealments for display on fixed or mobile receive applications. The transmitter features HD/SD-SDI or optional HDMI inputs with COFDM transmission in a small, lightweight chassis.
