BSI UK, the European business of Broadcast Sports International, a specialist provider of wireless cameras and microphones for live broadcast, has started to work with 360° filming, developing a 360° solution which can be integrated into live broadcasts using BSI’s wireless camera systems.

BSI is using its own Real Freedom wireless camera technology to add a 360° experience to a live sports production. The concept is that the viewer will be given a 360° view of a stadium, and will be able to look around the stadium as they like, in real time, using their own iPad or iPhone – which they can use with or without a traditional television screen.

BSI will offer the wireless 360° imaging to broadcasters and production companies that want to give viewers the extra option of adding a 360° view of a sports event in a stadium.

Tony Valentino, Technical Director of BSI in the UK said: “For BSI, this is a natural development from the work we are doing with our new 4k link developments, corner-post cameras and dual stream transmission from POV cameras – we now have a working prototype and we can show our first wireless 360° images.”
