I-MOVIX and Polecam Partner for Ultra Slow Motion

I-MOVIX and Polecam have collaborated on the development of a new product for the X10 ultra slow motion product range.

Already in use by Logo2 Producciones (Spain) for behind-the-goal action at major football matches, the system is based on a lightweight configuration of the I-MOVIX X10 system that’s been optimized for use with Polecam cranes for portability, speed, and flexibility in situations where the camera needs to be closer to the action.

Featuring an I-MOVIX X10 Spine with the Vision Research Phantom Miro 320S high-speed camera, the system operates at frame rates up to 1,500 FPS in 1920x1080 resolution (and up to 3,000 FPS in 1280x720) with instant replay, and offers the major operational advances provided by the X10 technology, while the Miro 320S camera itself can be used for additional non-broadcast shooting.

“As shown by Logo2 Producciones in its football match productions, I-MOVIX ultra slow motion combined with the freedom of movement of Polecam cranes delivers an unbeatable sense of intimacy and insight into the action,” said Steffan Hewitt, Director Polecam Ltd.

“Using I-MOVIX X10 Spine with Polecam cranes offers production teams a superb complement to our fixed camera and RF solutions,” said Laurent Renard, CEO of I-MOVIX. “It's another extension of creativity for directors and camera operators, and one more step towards making ultra slow motion an ubiquitous tool in sports coverage.”
