New speciality cameras from Gravity Media have been employed across cricket grounds in England and Wales this summer for the new The Hundred tournament.
Globecam, which Gravity acquired in July, has supplied speciality cameras HelmetCam and KeeperCam which have been used throughout the tournament.
HelmetCam delivers an HD camera feed, letting audiences at home experience exactly what the batter sees when they step up to the crease. The images captured by the device have also been used as diagnostic tools for pundits dissecting key moments in a game.
The device has full HD 1080i/50 resolution, HD-SDI output from the receiver, image stabilisation and weighs just 230g.
Greg Littrich, director of media services and facilities for Gravity Media in Australia commented: “We knew that Gravity Media’s acquisition of the Globecam speciality camera business would allow us to enhance the live broadcasts that we deliver for clients and the roll out of the HelmetCam at The Hundred is a great example of that. It’s been a great tournament of exciting cricket and we’re looking forward to rolling these speciality cameras out into lots of other live events.”
