IMT Vislink and Movicom tested referee camera

When the puck dropped on the Champions Hockey League final last month, IMT Vislink and Movicom teamed up to provide a compact referee camera solution that gave ice-level points-of-view during the game between the Frolunda Indians and Red Bull Munich at the Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The Movicom Refcam system used for this event included a mini-camera, specially designed camera mount, IMTDragonFly wireless camera transmitter and the Vislink 2 input H.264 receiver with Fanbeam antennas to deliver solid coverage throughout the arena.

Throughout the game, cameras were remotely controlled by RCP from the OB van using Movicom’s proprietary wireless telemetry channel. “Bringing the audience closer, helping them stay connected to the action and providing an ‘inside experience’ is one of the most thrilling aspects of today’s sports broadcasting,” says Victor Pakhomov, CEO, Movicom. “Through our productive cooperation with Vislink, we are proud to help broadcasters meet these goals and enhance their production.”

The lightweight kit (only 7 oz/190 g) can be neatly and easily attached to referees’ personal helmets, without wires, thereby eliminating any discomfort for the user. It can be mounted on most any helmet, including hockey, horseracing and American football. This POV system also bears the possibilities of being arranged as a chest- or glass-cam solution. Quickly installed and remote controllable within two-mile distance, the Refcam provides a unique visual experience that brings viewers closer to the action. (3/19)
