I-Movix SprintCam Live V2.1 Extends Ultra-Slow-Motion Capabilities

I-Movix has
announced the latest version of its broadcast-integration solution for ultra
slow-motion. SprintCam Live V2.1, which allows users to capture from 500 to
10,000 frames per second with instant replay, adds a range of new features and
developments in response to user feedback and the experience gained at the 2008
Beijing Olympic Games.

According to the company, among the
features and enhancements are new algorithms for image quality, user-friendly
remote controls that enable fine-tuned settings, and a slow-motion remote with
a new cueing system that allows quick and easy selection of the sequence to
replay.

“Building on the success of SprintCam Live V2 at numerous major events culminating in Beijing, this new version brings further usability and quality benefits to our customers,” says Laurent Renard, CEO of I-Movix. “The hallmark of SprintCam Live V2 has been its combination of unmatched performance with the simplicity of operation that allows any camera crew to be up and running after only a few minutes of training. With SprintCam Live V2.1, we’ve concentrated on extending our lead in both these areas while increasing the already high quality of the images produced.”

SprintCam
Live V2.1 is a fully integrated ultra-slow-motion system for broadcast,
offering unmatched frame rates in SD slow-motion capture, top image quality,
light sensitivity, and ease of installation and use. The system can be operated
out of the box, in conjunction with an EVS LSM server for sequence storage or
with any SDI recorder.
Bucky Gunts, head of production for NBC Olympics, declares himself “very impressed with the clarity and quality of the images of the SprintCam Live V2 as provided by BOB [Beijing Olympic Broadcasting] last summer in Beijing.”

Spearheading I-Movix’s product range, which now encompasses the new SprintCam V3 HD and SprintCam Basic solutions for a range of slow-motion applications, SprintCam Live V2.1 is available for immediate sale through I-Movix’s network of distributors.
