BSI Deploys 4K Wireless Camera System In Live Production

News Image
BSI has completed a series of live tests with a 4K version of its wireless camera system.

While most prime time sports events in the UK already air in 4K, where broadcasters are using specialist mobile wireless cameras, the shots are always captured at the 1080p/50/3G standard, and up scaled to 4K. TO date, nobody has used images from a 4K camera with a low delay 4K wireless link in a production.

BSI aims to be the first broadcast company to achieve this. The company's HD wireless camera back system, 'Real Freedom' is a complete working solution for live productions. It features integrated Ethernet camera control including control of audio and other key parameters. BSI's R&D teams in Watford and Baltimore have been working on the 4K version of this system for a while and the first live test took place in September at the Aviva Rugby Premiership in Northampton. A second test took place at the Rugby Premiership in October, where BSI added Ethernet camera control and 4 x 3G signal distribution.

Tony Valentino, BSI's UK Managing Director, said: "This was the industry's first test of a 4K low delay wireless camera system and there is no doubt that it demonstrated exceptional picture quality. Everyone who saw the images from the camera was blown away by the video, and it was difficult to believe it was not from a cabled camera."
