KBS chooses I-MOVIX ultra motion system

Korea’s national television station KBS has invested in the SprintCam Vvs HD ultra slow motion technology from I-MOVIX. KBS will deploy the solution to enhance its coverage of domestic and international baseball, volleyball, basketball and football events. KBS has been a long-term user of ultra motion for sports productions, but this is the first time the broadcaster purchased the I-MOVIX’s solution. KBS trialled three super slowmo systems during the summer of 2012 to compare performance and features. "During those benchmark trials, we were deeply impressed by I-MOVIX SprintCam Vvs HD," said Hwang Sutaek, director of outside broadcasting department of KBS. "In fact, our basic requirement was reliable image quality in relatively high frame rates – at least 1000fps; but SprintCam Vvs HD also delivered the best set of features and usability, which is why we chose SprintCam Vvs HD over the others. Now, we are looking forward to the upcoming development of new products from I-MOVIX like the deflickering system." The SprintCam Vvs HD broadcast system already has achieved unprecedented success in sports production because of its unique combination of image quality, light sensitivity, flexible broadcast integration, and easy, out-of-the-box operation. The system, delivering from 25 to 2,600 fps in 1080i or up to 5,600 fps in 720p, with instant replay, comprises the latest generation Vision Research high-speed HD camera; an operational control panel that provides a real broadcast-quality colour matrix and control of frame-rate choice; a slow-motion remote that enables the user to select a video sequence and instantly replay it with an HD-SDI output for live broadcast or storage on any EVS server for a later use; and the camera control unit, which provides control of the slow-motion instant replay, camera control, and data interface between the camera and the EVS server. The SprintCam Vvs HD system chosen by KBS was supplied by Korean I-MOVIX distributor
