TV Globo adds I-MOVIX for football, volleyball coverage
TV Globo, the largest TV broadcaster in Brazil has become the first Latin American broadcaster to acquire the I-MOVIX X10 continuously streaming ultra slow motion system. TV Globo will add X10 to the existing complement of SprintCam Vvs HD systems embedded with its sports production crews, to provide further innovation to its coverage of major sporting events.
Destined for deployment at TV Globo’s Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo production centers, the new X10 systems will be used to provide more ultra slow motion footage in premium events such as football and volleyball tournaments. TV Globo will also use the X10 for the production of special projects in the network’s documentary and soft news departments.
“We are very excited to be the first to use the X10,” says José Manuel Mariño, Director of the News and Sports Engineering Division, TV Globo. “TV Globo has a tradition of innovation in sports broadcasting and is always looking after solutions to improve how stories are captured and presented to its audience. It is important for us to have the most modern and the best tools available so that we can achieve this goal, and our partnership with I-MOVIX has been very fruitful. With the X10, we can extend our leadership in the production of outstanding live sports and entertainment content.”
Developed in partnership with EVS, the X10 system is used with an EVS XT3 production server under LSM control and provides a familiar user interface and controls that any broadcast crew can use immediately without any special training.
