NAC Integrates Hi-Motion II with EVS Multicam LSM, Taps Ikegami as Distributor
NAC Image Technology has announced two major deals involving its Hi-Motion II Ultra Slow Motion Camera Systems. NAC has expanded its technical partnership with EVS, resulting in the full integration of the Hi-Motion II with the industry-standard EVS Multicam LSM. In addition, NAC has named Ikegami as its worldwide distributor for the Hi-Motion II.

“We are extremely happy to be working closely with a world renowned company like EVS,” says Mr. Kenichi Ueki, President of NAC Image Technology. “We’ve been fortunate to be able work with strong partners like EVS and, with the help of partners like EVS, NAC’s ultra slow motion camera systems have been embraced by broadcasters for live coverage of the World Cup events in Germany and South Africa, the Olympic Games in Beijing and Vancouver, and a variety of professional sporting events, including international motor racing, cycling, tennis, football, baseball, rugby, cricket, golf, boxing and horse racing.”
Ikegami will now serve as distributor for the Hi-Motion II in Asia, Europe, North America, Central America and South America.
