MRMC introduces Polycam One for multiple camera match coverage
At IBC Nikon Group subsidiary MRMC announced the introduction of its latest automated multi-camera system, the Polycam One.
Designed for live sports capture, the Polycam One is a portable multi-camera workflow solution that gives a single operator the ability to record a match from multiple camera positions simultaneously. Polycom One maps out the playing area and the locations of up to 12 robotic cameras.
The camera operator follows the action with the ‘main’ camera, while Polycam One controls the additional robotic cameras, following the focus of the ‘main’ camera. MRMC’s Algorithmic Camera Control lets the operator concentrate on covering the action while the Polycam One system provides complementary shots, such as a wide or high tactical view, which can be used for highlights, replays or adjudication.
The robotic cameras are IP connected, allowing the operator or an additional remote operator, to adjust and control them in real time providing a more dynamic visual experience.
MRMC managing director Assaff Rawner said, “Polycam One is an ideal solution to adding more camera angles to what would normally be a single camer operation. Its design means it can easily be deployed, configured and operators by one person, and with our robotic heads providing up to 12 additional cameras, gives you more options for capturing the action.”
