TV Globo chooses SprintCam

Thursday, 12 November 2009

Major Brazilian broadcaster TV Globo has purchased I-Movix's new SprintCam V3 HD ultra slow-motion solution for sports broadcasting and entertainment purposes.

I-Movix's SprintCam V3 HD is the first broadcast-integrated, native HD, ultra-slow-motion solution offering frame rates of 250 to 2000 frames per second with instant replay, producing slow-motion output from 8x to 66x times slower than normal speed.

TV Globo chose the I-Movix technology after conducting a series of field tests in Rio de Janeiro and determining that the SprintCam V3 HD would allow the Brazilian broadcaster to be fully independent with its new extreme slow motion capabilities. Based on real-life conditions, the testing revealed the solution's ease of use and its ability to produce stunning realtime images. Fujinon Brazil also provided its expertise to achieve the best image quality.

"The lens selected for use on the SprintCam V3 HD is the Fujinon XA88x8.8BESM-SK, which features all-new technology enhancements such as Precision Focus Assistance," said Fulvio Trevisan, director of project management, Fujinon. "This new concept of extreme slow images will be very popular in Brazil."

The deal was officially closed at the Broadcast and Cable Show 2009 in São Paulo in partnership with Video Systems, I-Movix's official representative in Brazil.
