London 1st August 2013 - UK Ultra Slow Motion specialist Editec has been selected by Sunset+Vine to supply I-MOVIX high speed camera systems that it will use to help provide BT Sport’s live TV coverage of the new English Barclays Premier League season and Aviva Premiership Rugby games.
“We are delighted to have appointed Editec to work on our BT Sport live production requirements” said David Tippett, Executive Producer at Sunset+Vine. “Over the years we have built a successful relationship with Steve Cotterill and his team. This started when they first introduced us to the early EVS servers, and now continues the exceptional I-MOVIX range of Ultra Slo Mo camera systems.”
"Editec’s specialist knowledge, along with its offer of free trials, has helped to ensure that we have the right cameras for our requirements. We are looking forward to working with them to secure some spectacular images from the I-MOVIX cameras over the coming EPL and Aviva Premiership seasons."
Steve Cotterill, managing director of Editec said "It's really exciting to have the opportunity to work with Sunset+Vine across these BT Sport events. We are fully aware there is always a choice in suppliers and so we thank them for putting their faith in us."
The I-MOVIX range of products have been designed specifically for extreme slow motion and have been received with great acclaim by both sports and commercial customers worldwide. With superfast installation and user-friendly custom-designed control panels, the cameras run off a standard SMPTE fibre and take broadcast B4 mount lenses. For film use, an adapter enables any PL mount lens to be used.

I-MOVIX offers the first true ultra-slow motion solutions fully integrated for broadcast use, with an unprecedented combination of very high frame rates and instant replay with a continuous streaming option.
