ACS Wins Emmy Sports Award

News Image
Aerial Camera Systems (ACS) has recently received an Emmy Sports Award.

The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced the winners of the 38th Annual Sports Emmy Awards at a ceremony at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City.

The ACS crew won Emmy Awards as part of their involvement in the delivery of NBC's coverage of the Rio Games, in the category Outstanding Technical Team Remote.

In total, NBC Sports Group won nine Sports Emmy Awards for excellence in sports television production, highlighted by four awards for its coverage of the Summer Games Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

ACS crew spent a month out in Rio, rigging and operating their in-house designed SMARTheads on the diving, swimming, golf and beach volleyball events, as well the Opening Ceremony and athletics in the main stadium. One SMARThead™ was also deployed as a Beautycam and controlled from the IBC. ACS created bespoke mounting solutions for many of the remote heads and rigged in some challenging positions, including the roof of the main stadium for the Opening Ceremony SMARThead. Access to this position involved walking across the canvas roof of the stadium.

ACS's SMARThead3s were deployed at the golf. This adaption of the remote head was created to fulfil the growing demand for a compact remote head system capable of handling a much wider range of camera and lens combinations. For the company's provision to NBC, these three SMARThead3s were fitted with XJ100x lenses.
