Air to Air Belgium Purchases Shotover F1 Live

News Image
Aerial production company Air to Air Belgium has purchased a Shotover F1 Live camera platform in preparation for the 2017 racing season. The system will allow Air to Air Belgium to deliver 4K footage during Formula 1 live broadcasts.

Introduced earlier this year, the Shotover F1 Live is the broadcaster-optimized variant of the Shotover F1 gyro-stabilized camera platform. The system supports all major broadcast cameras, including both 4K and 2K models and comes configured and set up from the factory with the customer's camera and lens system of choice. It also comes with the Shotover Rain Spinner, while an integrated moving map overlay to help broadcasters identify ground locations and addresses during fast moving assignments is available as an option.

Featuring 6-axis gyro-stabilization with look down capability, the F1 LIVE uses an open platform design that can accommodate new cameras and lenses as they become available. The system can also be painted to match a broadcaster's color scheme.

Lieven Hermans, Owner, Air to Air Belgium, said: "We have used every serious offering in the market and the SHOTOVER F1 LIVE stands out for its unparalleled performance, image quality and reliability. When you're broadcasting 4K footage at full zoom from a heavily maneuvering helicopter at full speed, there's no room for error and the F1 LIVE delivers a level of clarity that is simply amazing. It's a completely new standard and for us the preferred system for keeping up with the intense technical demands of live 4K broadcasting. With the purchase of the SHOTOVER F1, we are fully ready for the 4K future."

Brad Hurndell, CEO, SHOTOVER, added: "Air to Air Belgium is one of Europe's premier aerial production companies with incredible expertise shooting the world's fastest moving sporting events. We are excited to have been selected to support their high profile, live broadcast needs."
