SPINNER at Europe’s Biggest Football Event 2016
SPINNER Hybrid Rotating Solution for Spidercam
Spidercam – a company which specialises in producing live TV images from a spectacular bird’s eye perspective – will be producing 4K images of Europe’s biggest football event this year in France with the help of a SPINNER Hybrid Rotating Solution. The top speed, cable-suspended camera system is able to cover very large flying areas of 250 m x 250 m.
At one of the world’s major sport events, only the use of the very best equipment can come into consideration. That’s why Spidercam has chosen SPINNER as their supplier for a Hybrid Rotating Solution, i.e. the fusion of a fibre optical rotary joint (FORJ) with a slip-ring. The use of this technology enables interference-free data communication at 4K quality – even in fast-moving images.
“It wasn’t only the performance of the SPINNER Hybrid Rotating Solution that we found convincing – its technical flexibility was beyond what we expected. Needless to say, the lead-time and availability are also crucial for a major sport event,” says Jan Peters, CEO of Spidercam with satisfaction.
The rapid response time of SPINNER’s engineers, allowing for the joint development of a custom-made component in an exceptionally short time frame, has left a lasting impression at Spidercam.
We are all looking forward to enjoying some exciting football. The SPINNER hybrid rotating solution will allow the “Spidercam” to take its breath-taking views. We here at Spinner aren’t the only ones to be eagerly anticipating the championships!
