Robycam Systems Selected For Major eSports Events In Poland

News Image
A number of Robycam systems have helped broadcast two major eSports tournaments in Poland to thousands of visitors and millions of live-stream viewers.

From 22 February to 03 March the ESL One Dota 2 eSports tournament and Intel Extreme Masters stopped in Katowice, Poland. Around 18,000 visitors followed the battles live in the Spodek Arena.

Robycam Germany used the biggest Robycam system during the event in the Spodek Arena. Rigging points for the winches were placed to the right and left of the stage, and on the tiers, therefore the Robycam could fly over the entire stage and auditorium.

The Robycam Germany team used a Grass Valley LDX 86 N Compact camera because of the primary exploitation of the event via internet streaming. All video signals were produced throughout the entire production chain in 59.94p and also played out on the screens in the arena.

The gyro-stabilised camera head makes 3D camera movements possible. Together with a powerful control system, movements in all three axes are possible: pan, tilt, roll. All three axes are stabilised, i.e. there is also an "Auto-Horizon" function, stabilising the image during wind or swinging movements.

The Robycam system uses four real-time controlled automatic winches and a sophisticated motion control system that allows for millimetre accurate and fast camera movements - up to 8 m/s in all axes are possible. The largest system has an operating radius of more than 250 m x 250 m and the system works fully redundant (UPS units on each computer). All systems comply with the German safety standard DGUV 17/18 (formerly BGV-C1) and meet all other important national safety requirements. Defining areas in which the system can fly and those that are blocked is a particular feature of the system that enables use in environments with "blocked" spaces. Even in the event of operating errors, absolute safety is guaranteed for fixed installed obstructions or persons.

A total of 12 teams fought for the title of Dota 2 champion in Katowic, with Team Secret coming out on top.
