Live From Rio 2016: Photo Galleries — Judo, Boxing, and Shooting
Carioca Arena 2 (CA2): Judo
Judo battles take place at Carioca Arena 2 in the Barra Olympic Park. Judo is a dynamic combat sport that demands both physical prowess and great mental discipline. From a standing position, it involves techniques that allow you to lift and throw your opponent onto their back. On the ground, it includes techniques that allow you to pin your opponent to the ground, control them, and apply various choke holds or joint locks until submission. With two matches going on simultaneously, there is plenty of camerawork at any one moment. Each match features seven hard cameras, two RF cameras, and a jib camera, and there are two additional RF cameras and two robotic beauty cameras.
Riocentro Pavilion 6: Boxing
Jabs, crosses, uppercuts: a single punch can make all the difference in boxing. The sport made its Olympic debut at the 1904 St Louis Games, and women entered the fray at London 2012. At Rio 2016, there are 13 categories, 10 for men and three for women. The pictures here are from Riocentro Pavilion 6, where the fights were held. There was also 360 VR content coverage during the bantam and lightweight prelims. Cameras include two RF handhelds, one high-speed super-slo-mo handheld, five hard cameras, one robotic, and two robotic cameras in the warm-up area.
Shooting Centre (OSC)
A supreme test of accuracy, shooting made its Olympics debut at Athens 1896, the first Games of the modern era. At Rio 2016, there are nine men’s and six women’s shooting events, all individual. Camera coverage comprises three hard cameras, a high-speed super-slo-mo camera, five robotic cameras, two handhelds, and a jib.
