The SprintCam Technology
The SprintCam ultra-slow-motion technology is based on single CMOS high-speed digital cameras. Such sensor is used for crash test images, among others.
The SprintCam technology, which has applications in live sports and other live TV productions, as well as in commercials, documentaries, movies, and scientific R&D, is underlying the development of different fully integrated systems for broadcast:
SprintCam Vvs HD (Phantom® powered): is the last ultra-slow-motion system that provides unprecedented performance in live high-definition (HD) broadcast production. Featuring the renowned quality and usability of I-MOVIX's award-winning SprintCam technology, SprintCam Vvs HD operates at up to 5,600 fps in 720p (up to 2,600 fps in 1080i), and provides instant replay at native HD resolution and image quality with a dual output for a live and replay feed. It can be specified in a standard camera version or optimized for shoulder-mounted portable shooting, providing an outstanding level of convenience and creativity in ultra-slow-motion action. Some of the new features include a dual output allowing a camera operator to shoot and record at the same time, segmented memory, ramping of speed within a replay, and integration of both live- and replay-view on the viewfinder.A full system is made up of four parts:
(1) a HD high-speed camera,
All products in the I-Movix range can be operated out of the box as complete systems, in conjunction with an EVS LSM server for sequence storage, or with any SDI recorder.
The SprintCam workflow from capture to playout
The SprintCam camera systems are loop recording. The recording has to be stopped to create a HD-SDI replay upon our high-speed stream (from 25 to up to 5,600 images/sec in 720p (up to 2,600 images/sec in 1080i) for the SprintCam Vvs HD). The replay is instantly available throughout the HD-SDI output. You can directly display it, record it on an EVS LSM server or on any SDI recorder or clip it without delay even at 5,800 images per second.
Special features of the SprintCam system
The SprintCam Vvs HD is a fully integrated system that present multiple advantages:
(1) Clarity, quality and sharpness of the images
The camera control unit and the camera are interfaced with a SMPTE standard fiber optic cable with LEMO connectors, with a max distance of 1,000m between both components (FISCHER or TAJIMI options are available).
Lighting has to be flicker-free.
The SprintCam systems are not restricted to a single lens
The following broadcast lens types can be used with the SprintCam camera systems :
- every B4 mount HD lens for 2/3 inch sensor (Fujinon HD broadcast lenses, ...)
