IMT Vislink And Movicom Team Up For Champions Hockey League Final

News Image
IMT Vislink and Movicom have collaborated to transmit referee point-of-view camera footage at this year's Champions Hockey League final.

The companies provided a compact referee camera solution for the game between the Frolunda Indians and Red Bull Munich at the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden, last month.

The Movicom Refcam system included a mini-camera, specially designed camera mount, IMTDragonFly wireless camera transmitter and the Vislink 2 input H.264 receiver with Fanbeam antennas to deliver solid coverage throughout the arena.

Throughout the game, cameras were remotely controlled by RCP  from the OB van using Movicom's proprietary wireless telemetry channel. "Bringing the audience closer, helping them stay connected to the action and providing an 'inside experience' is one of the most thrilling aspects of today's sports broadcasting," said Victor Pakhomov, CEO, Movicom. "Through our productive cooperation with Vislink, we are proud to help broadcasters meet these goals and enhance their production."

The lightweight kit (only 7 oz/190 g) can be neatly and easily attached to referees' personal helmets, without wires, thereby eliminating any discomfort for the user. It can be mounted on most any helmet, including hockey, horseracing and American football. This POV system also bears the possibilities of being arranged as a chest- or glass-cam solution. Quickly installed and remote controllable within two-mile distance, the Refcam provides a unique visual experience that brings viewers closer to the action.

"Our wireless technology is ideal for integration in innovative bodyworn solutions such as the Movicom Refcam," said John Payne, President and COO of Vislink Technologies. "We are committed to delivering systems that help put audiences at the heart of the action as it happens, allowing them to engage with their favourite sports in unprecedented ways."

He continued: "We look forward to showing the IMTDragonFly as well as our full range of solutions for live production at this year's NAB 2019 event in Las Vegas, NV, where we will be welcoming attendees to our booth (C6008)."

The IMTDragonFly Transmitter is a miniature wireless video transmission system designed to capture real-time, high-quality video from UAV/UGV/Body Cams/Concealments for display on fixed or mobile receive applications. The transmitter features HD/SD-SDI or optional HDMI inputs with COFDM transmission in a small, lightweight chassis. The IMTDragonFly delivers up to 50mW of power in a package weighing less than 1.2 ounces/34 grams, providing long-range, reliable HD video transmission.
