SprintCam makes successful debut at Beijing Open
China: I-Movix’s Phantom-powered SprintCam has made its Chinese national network debut during CCTV’s coverage of the Beijing Tennis Open Championships.
“As a programme director of CCTV, I believe the SprintCam system gave us an amazing experience during our operations,” said Yan Juang, chief manager, Broadcast Division for CCTV. “My team found it very easy to operate. We tried continually to push the capabilities of the camera: we let the camera be at its best, showing the highest picture quality. I believe the I-Movix ultra slow-motion system, after all the improvements that have been made over previous generations of slow-motion in broadcasting, will certainly bring us more and more exciting pictures on TV.”
“We are very pleased to be bringing the best in ultra-slow-motion technology to the Chinese market,” said Wan Yan, general manager of Instrimpex Instec Import & Export Company – SprintCam’s representative in the region. “The new I-Movix system made its very successful debut at the Chinese Open Tennis tournament, and now there is great interest in the new views of action that the system can give.”
New features on the SprintCam Vvs HD — the latest model in the SprintCam range — include: a dual output allowing a camera operator to shoot and record at the same time, segmented memory, ramping of speed within a replay, dual output of live action and replay sequences, and integration of both live- and replay-view on the viewfinder. Operational enhancements include compatibility with EVS server ultra-motion mode, digital lens interface for better iris and lens switch control, improved replay controls, support for synchronisation of two cameras in 3D ultra slow-motion capture, and a new joystick-equipped control panel.
