RMC Sport chooses XD Motion for 4K UHD HDR Champions League match coverage

XD Motion teamed with RMC Sport in Lille to use its X fly 3D cablecam for 4K UHD HDR coverage

XD Motion covered the UEFA Champions League group game between Lille and Chelsea on Wednesday 2 October for RMC Sport in northern France, with its X fly 3D cablecam.

XD Motion’s team went from the Accor Hotels Arena in Paris, where the company used its X fly 3D cablecam to provide unique shots of the CEV EuroVolley 2019 Men’s volleyball final, to Lille’s 50,000 seater stadium to film in UHD 4K HDR.

Commented CEO, Benoit Dentan: “Showing the dexterity of the system we were able to meet the demand for high quality from the client, RMC Sport, for such a high profile, global match. The specification for the job was to film in UHD 4K HDR and this was achieved with the brand new HDC P50 Sony 12G.”

“We were so delighted to use such high end specifications as it clearly demonstrated the quality of the shots we could achieve using the X fly 3D and our perfect XD cam gyro-stabilised head,” added Dentan.
