selected to provide the extreme slow-motion solution for the Olympic Games is a
tremendous accolade for a product not yet one year old,” says Laurent
Renard, CEO, I-Movix. “SprintCam Live V2 is ideally suited to an event
like the 2008 Olympic Games because its unique performance abilities are
matched with outstanding ease of installation and operation. Camera operators
find SprintCam Live V2 completely familiar and intuitive to use, and they can
be shooting with it after only a few minutes of training.”
Photron cameras and Fujinon lenses, SprintCam Live provides a very high quality
of imagery in both SD and HD (720p and 1080i). SprintCam Live’s operator
control panel (OCP) provides real-time control of image-quality settings
including gamma, knee, white balance, and black balance.
Live V2 is easily integrated into a mobile broadcast setup and can be used as a
stand-alone solution. SprintCam Live V2 comprises a camera, a camera control
unit (CCU), an OCP, and a slow-motion remote control. Installation and
operation are quick and simple; directors, cameramen, and production team
require virtually no training.
