Editec expands SprintCam fleet
UK-based broadcast production and hire specialist Editec has placed additional orders for an unspecified number of I-MOVIX SprintCam ultra-slow motion systems, making Editec’s SprintCam fleet the largest in Europe.
Editec has supplied SprintCam systems to broadcasters in the UK since the product line was launched in 2008, working with key players on ultra-slow motion coverage of events in the UK and Europe including darts, Formula 1 racing, Hickstead show jumping, boxing, Premier League football, the Heineken Cup and international rugby, Cartier Polo Finals, and the Red Bull Air Race.
Steve Cotterill, managing director of Editec, said: “Since taking delivery of our first SprintCam systems in 2008, we’ve used them in a wide range of conditions and for events as varied as equestrian sports, athletics, speedway, and hip-hop dancing — all with great success. This latest order is a response to sharply rising demand as broadcasters have seen what SprintCam is capable of. Technically the system has performed well — it is truly a ‘plug and play’ device. Tally and full talkback facilities and dual outputs (live/replay) enable the camera to be used live at any time, and a senior vision engineer was recently heard stating ‘this is the best picture quality I have ever seen from a high-speed camera.”
