ESPN, Fletcher Go Behind the Glass for NBA Coverage with I-MOVIX ‘Slam-Cams’
Fletcher is supplying up to six I-MOVIX cameras per weekend during the NBA on ESPN season. The cameras will be placed behind the backboard known as “Slam-Cams”. After a successful demonstration during last year’s playoff all six cameras debuted this season on Christmas Day deployed at the following games: The Miami Heat Vs. Oklahoma City, LA Lakers Vs. New York Knicks, and LA Clippers Vs. Denver Nuggets.
“The I-MOVIX camera provides a dramatic slow motion replay from an angle that would not be possible with other high speed systems,” says Dan Grainge, VP, Sports, Fletcher Chicago Inc. “The unique design of the I-MOVIX system allows us to put the camera in much smaller space. We are very happy with the versatility and reliability of the I-MOVIX product. We look forward to a season of unique replays from this angle.”
Featuring the high quality and usability of I-MOVIX’s award-winning SprintCam technology, the SprintCam Vvs HD solution operates at frame rates up to 2,600 fps in 1080i50/ up to 5,600 fps in 720p60 (up to 100 times slower than the live action), and provides instant replay at native HD resolution and image quality.
