News Image
Vinten Radamec has installed its latest robotic equipment into Sky Italia's new studio to enhance the broadcaster's coverage of this season’s Formula One Championship.
A range of Vinten Radamec's robotic equipment was installed into Studio 8 in Sky Italia’s headquarters in Milan three weeks before the first chequered flag went down on the current Formula One season.
The equipment has been in action as part of the channel’s live coverage and commentary from the first five Formula One races.
The studio will show all 19 races, including the qualifying and practice sessions, in the 2013 F1 World Championship calendar.
Trans Audio Video (TAV), Vinten Radamec’s distributor in Italy, has installed and supported all the robotic systems for Sky Italia.
The new studio has been equipped with two of Vinten Radamec's recently launched FH-35VR next generation heads.
Studio 8 has also been installed with one of Vinten Radamec's new control solutions, the CP4. It has been integrated into the controls of the Sky Broadcast system.
Karen Walker, Commercial Manager, Vinten Radamec, said: "Through our Italian distributor and systems integrator TAV, Vinten Radamec has developed a strong reputation with Sky Italia for delivering compelling viewing and now utilising AR. This is the latest in a range of installations for the broadcaster and we are delighted that some of our next generation equipment is being used for Sky Italia's captivating coverage of the F1 season."
