Gigawave’s latest wireless camera systems were successfully deployed for their first live event coverage during the MotoGP Championship in Valencia, Spain, in November. The Vislink company took INCAM, its new integrated wireless camera system and the new Clip-On 4 wireless camera transmitter – both first shown at IBC 2012 – to the MotoGP Championship to be put through their paces by Dorna Sports, the exclusive commercial and television rights holder for the FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix – MotoGP. The Gigawave INCAM system was used during practice and qualifying. Designed in co-operation with Sony, INCAM fits snugly within the body of Sony’s new HDC-2500 camera. Lance Hiley, chief marketing officer for Vislink International said: “The feedback we received from the professional cameramen at Valencia indicates that the sleek profile of the integrated design and the superior overall balance enabled them to transition from shoulder to hand-held positions with ease, allowing them to focus on capturing the excitement and emotion of the event. The ability to configure the transmitter through the camera's existing viewfinder menu was also a substantial, timesaving benefit.” The Clip-On 4 is designed for use with both HD and SD cameras for ENG, OB and studio applications. The Clip-On 4 benefits from ultra-low latency of just half a frame (20ms) with H.264 encoding. Dorna used the Clip-On 4-equipped camera throughout the championship weekend with no intervention required by Gigawave’s on-site support team.www.vislink.com
