Editec supplied I-Movix SprintCam systems to broadcasters for Europa League and FA Cup football. SIS Live, working with ITV Sport, took two of Editec’s Sprintcams to Bucharest, Romania, to add Ultra Motion replay facilities to the Europa League finals. Editec supplied on-site support for this prestigious event, to assist with installation and technical familiarisation. Since the I-Movix Sprintcam appeared in the UK, ITV Sport has been keen to use either one or two cameras on their major football events, dependent upon budget. In Bucharest, football specialist cameraman Ben Seaman operated one of the cameras set up in the 55,600 seat National Arena. “These cameras are a joy to operate and the images provided stole the show,” said Seaman. “I am amazed that these cameras perform so well under evening lighting conditions. This technology has certainly moved on over the past couple of years. We managed to shoot up to 450 fps on this job. Until the Sprintcam came along, Hi-Mo would simply not have been even thought of for evening matches.” For the second season running ESPN have also used the I-Movix Sprintcam Vvs to shoot FA Cup promotional material at the FA Cup final. The versatile Vvs system provided dual outputs such that the promo producer was able to clip and store replays at varying shooting speeds, all images being recorded on to a solid state flash device. At the same time, the main OB truck – provided by OB facilities supplier SIS Live - had an EVS server recording the replay output such that the Ultra Motion images could be used in the live programme for analysis and montage purposes. Steve Cotterill, MD of Editec said, "We are pleased to be a contributor to the continuing I-Movix success story.” www.editecuk.com
