I-MOVIX is pleased to announce that Fletcher will supply up to six I-MOVIX cameras per weekend during the NBA on ESPN season.
The cameras will be placed behind the back board known as “slam-cams”. After a successful demonstration during last year’s play-offs all 6 cameras will debut this season on Christmas Day deployed at the following games: The Miami Heat Vs. Oklahoma City, LA Lakers Vs. New York Knicks, and LA Clippers Vs. Denver Nuggets.
“The I-MOVIX camera provides a dramatic slow motion replay from an angle that would not be possible with other high speed systems,” said Dan Grainge, Vice President Sports, Fletcher Chicago Inc. “The unique design of the I-MOVIX system allows us to put the camera in much smaller space. We are very happy with the versatility and reliability of the I-MOVIX product. We look forward to a season of unique replays from this angle.”
Featuring the renowned quality and usability of I-MOVIX’s award-winning SprintCam technology, the SprintCam Vvs HD solution operates at frame rates up to 2,600 fps in 1080i50/ up to 5,600 fps in 720p60 (up to 100 times slower than the live action), and provides instant replay at native HD resolution and image quality.
