CINEVIDEO turns to I-MOVIX SprintCam System for Italia SerieA Football
CINEVIDEO, a major Italian provider of HD OB vans and SNG services located in Pescara, has purchased the I-MOVIX SprintCam Vvs HD solution, operating at frame rates up to 2,600 fps in 1080i or up to 5,600 fps in 720p and providing instant replay at native HD resolution and image quality.
Cinevideo will use the SprintCam ultra slow motion technology mainly for sports broadcasting, and more particularly for the Italia SerieA Football League events. To complete the ultra motion equipment integrated in a dedicated OB Van, Cinevideo also made the acquisition of the EVS XTnano server, and of the new Canon DIGISUPER 95x optical lens.
“ARET is partner with I-MOVIX since more than 3 years as I-MOVIX has the widest possible experience in hyper slomo cameras,” said Alessandro Asti, vice president, ARET Engineering. “This first sale in the Italian market is the result of a very professional and mutual cooperation in which we have built the ‘Hyper slomo need’ and let the customer understand how excellent the I-MOVIX products are, how reliable, how easy and how its technology and performance is growing faster than any competitor.
“Cinevideo, which is a service company with several OB vans has grabbed this opportunity to offer its customers the latest hyper slomo technology,” he continued. “Cinevideo has just committed ARET to realize an high technology look OB van which will be the high speed camera shell.”
Featuring the quality, performance, and usability of I-MOVIX SprintCam systems, SprintCam Vvs HD delivers a high level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action. Aside from providing frame-rate speeds far in excess of other slow-motion systems, SprintCam Vvs HD also offers superior integration into broadcast operations, with a range of features and ease of use optimized for the rigors of demanding broadcast schedules.
“The SprintCam Vvs HD provides ultra slow motion of extraordinary quality with the ease and flexibility of use of a common camera,” said Andrea Buonomo, technical manager at Cinevideo. “It integrates seamlessly with our OB Van and I-MOVIX has developed a product with great features that will allow us to provide our customers with spectacular and exclusive images.”
The deal was closed thanks to I-MOVIX Italian partner ARET Engineering, which offers turnkey video and audio integrated systems for broadcast, satellite, postproduction, and mobile television.
“I would like to thank Cinevideo for the trust they have put in our products, and ARET engineering, our Italian partner, for the key role they play in developing the Italian market for ultra-slow motion,” said Laurent Renard, CEO, I-MOVIX. “We, at I-MOVIX, are convinced that as the first adopter of the SprintCam technology on the Italian market, Cinevideo will be instrumental in helping Italian broadcasters stay at the forefront of this creative new way of presenting sports.”
