For the final of Sky’s Got To Dance, shown live on Sky 3D, Steadicam operator Dominic Jackson used a P+S Technik Freestyle 3D rig with Sony P1 cameras, for which Broadcast RF supplied a dual-SDI video link as well as full Vislink Link L1500 RF rig and camera control, writes David Fox. This allowed the Steadicam to work from anywhere inside Olympia's Grand Hall with the vision and 3D engineers remotely controlling both the rig (convergence and interaxial) and cameras (full Sony RCP control) from the OB truck. The live show saw ten acts whittled down to three via viewer voting for a final dance off, with a £250,000 prize at stake, which was won by the Irish Hip-hop dance group, Prodijig. Advent Mantis launch Vislink has launched a new Advent Mantis MSAT Man Portable Data Terminal, a tri-band satellite antenna system for rapid deployment in hostile environments. Weighing 12.5kg, the Advent MSAT is designed to be carried by one person and is suitable for such applications as first-on-scene broadcast, as it can be fully operational in less than five minutes. The antenna's 65cm reflector can be used in Ka, Ku and X bands, be powered from either mains or 12v DC, and has interchangeable modems. "The Advent MSAT represents the first major new in-house antenna design for the Vislink group and is our first foray into the rapid deployment, lightweight terminal market. This antenna gives us entries not only in the surveillance market but also has applications in the mining sector and first-on-scene news reporting,” said Vislink Project Leader, Ali Zarkesh. www.vislink.comhttp://link.vislink.com/
