Logo2 Producciones innovates with I-MOVIX for El Clássico match coverage
I-MOVIX and Polecam have collaborated on the development of a new product in the X10 ultra slow motion range. Already in use by Logo2 Producciones for behind-the-goal action at top Spanish football matches, the system is based on a lightweight configuration of the I-MOVIX X10 system optimised for use with Polecam cranes in situations where the camera needs to be closer to the action.
Featuring an I-MOVIX X10 Spine with the compact Vision Research Phantom Miro 320S high-speed camera, the system operates at frame rates up to 1,500 FPS in 1920×1080 resolution (and up to 3,000 FPS in 1280×720) with instant replay, and offers the major operational advances provided by the X10 technology, while the Miro 320S camera itself can be used for additional non-broadcast shooting.
“As shown by Logo2 Producciones in its advanced productions under the direction of Victor Santamaria, for matches like El Clássico between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, I-MOVIX ultra slow motion combined with the freedom of movement of Polecam cranes delivers an unbeatable sense of intimacy and insight into the action,” said Steffan Hewitt, Director Polecam.
“Using I-MOVIX X10 Spine with Polecam cranes offers production teams a superb complement to our fixed camera and RF solutions,” said Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX. “It’s another extension of creativity for directors and camera operators, and one more step towards making ultra slow motion a ubiquitous tool in sports coverage.”
