Alston Elliot leases Pixellot video capture system
Joe Hosken writes: Alston Elliot (AE), the UK sports graphics company providing live 3D graphics to broadcasters has agreed a long term partnership with Pixellot, an Israeli startup company that has invented and developed an ultra-high-resolution unmanned video capture-all system and remote proxy video production technology. Pixellot’s system is claimed to provide a high quality but simple alternative to traditional production workflows. Pixellot also enables second screen viewership enhancements such as replays, player cameras, enhanced zoom and fixed 3D objects graphics.
“We are excited to kick off this partnership with AE, a key player in sports and graphics production,” said Dr Miky Tamir, Pixellot co-founder and chairman. “They have a proven track record in identifying and assisting new technology companies, all of which makes them an ideal partner.”
Pixellot’s offering is an affordable alternative to the traditional outside broadcast video capture and production system. The technology is based on an ultra-high resolution unmanned video capture device, a remote proxy-video production suite and a series of new media applications providing interactive and immersive viewing experiences across all media types. Pixellot was founded in early 2013 by Dr Miky Tamir and Gal Oz.
