I-MOVIX, Polecam demo X10 ultra slo-mo range at IBC
I-MOVIX and Polecam have collaborated on the development of a new product of the class-leading X10 ultra slow motion range that will be on display at IBC. 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 for portability, speed, and flexibility 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,” says Steffan Hewitt, Director Polecam Ltd.
“Using I-MOVIX X10 Spine with Polecam cranes offers production teams a superb complement to our fixed camera and RF solutions,” adds 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.”
