BSI to re-focus on rental of mobile RF cameras in the UK
BSI UK, the European business of Broadcast Sports International, provider of specialist RF cameras and audio systems, has announced a company re-organisation and a new focus on RF camera hire. The company has also appointed Tony Valentino to the role of managing director for the UK.
BSI offers a selection of specialist RF cameras: handheld radio cameras, Point Of View (POV) cameras, line-out cameras, gimbal cameras and the company’s own Real Freedom transmit and receive system which has already been used for live broadcast at 4K events.
The Real Freedom system has built in camera control, and was used on the recent Aviva Rugby Final at Twickenham. It supports 1080p50 3G format, which is ideal for 4K up scaling and future archiving needs.
BSI’s mini Point Of View (POV) cameras have full camera control including a motorised Iris which operates with a Sony RCP, for situations where a freely moving camera can get a unique but important view, for example as a Ref-Cam. BSI’s cameras are all offered either as a dry hire package or with support from BSI’s own technical team who will provide installation and assistance on site.
Headquartered in Hanover, MD, USA, BSI provides HD on-board cameras and wireless audio for a wide range of entertainment events around the world including the NASCAR, NFL, the PGA Tour, the LPGA Tour, the Indy Racing League, the Breeder’s Cup, the X-Games, the Kentucky Derby, the US Open, BSI’s cameras are also used by NASA in the astronaut’s helmets.
