Extreme E, the new electric off-road racing series has selected Al Kamel Systems to support its broadcast with time keeping, TV graphic services and data information.
The services the company will provide a paddock network to distribute data to TV, which will allow TV graphics to visualise data on screen.
Al Kamel Systems will utilise military technology to supply a reliable technology network for some of the more remote locations the cars will visit, including the Arctic and Amazon rainforest. It will also provide services remotely from its Spanish headquarters in Barcelona, which will be in contact with Extreme E’s London broadcast production facility, where the live race action will be mastered and then distributed globally.
Jose Luis Garcia, CEO at Al Kamel Systems, said: “Al Kamel Systems will face one of the most exciting challenges in its 17 year history with Extreme E. As a motorsport technology company, to supply a broad range of services in such diverse and difficult environments made us rethink and rebuild the architecture of our services technologies. We are using a variety of new initiatives like GPS timekeeping that minimise dramatically the onsite footprint and ensure a smooth broadcast of the championship, a very complex task, as after all everyone is relying on our services.”
