Live helicopter GPS antenna tracker for ski jumping in Oberstdorf

For the kick-off of the Four Hills Tournament in Oberstdorf in late December, HDwireless was in action for the host broadcaster ZDF.

The overall technical planning and the implementation of the host requirement was realised by TopVision under the leadership of Achim Jendges. On-site, HDwireless supported the OB van service provider from Berlin with wireless camera systems and radio connections.

HDwireless used its own development, the GPS antenna tracker, to receive live images from a camera helicopter. After a comprehensive hardware and software update last autumn, the system offers additional functions for the requirements of RF transmission.

In addition to the Traveled Path Recording option already introduced, the latest version provides features such as Auto GPS Location and KI Tracking Option. The GPS antenna tracking system is connected autonomously with only one LEMO SMPTE fibre.
