Always on, Always Available: Basler aviator Tells the Whole Sports Story in Panoramic Camera System from Camargus
More and more clubs, stadium owners, sports federations, leagues and rights holders in the sports industry want more content control over game footage, training sessions, surveillance activity and player analysis through video capture and management. Camargus, a Belgium-based supplier of multi-camera and video stitching systems to the broadcast and media production market, have come up with a solution: permanent stadium video infrastructure technology based on camera virtualization. This package gives the user full control over content creation, live and in post-production. To provide sports industry stakeholders with this increased freedom of choice for their content creation, Camargus developed a capture platform consisting of unmanned camera systems that “see everything” and produce software-based virtual views that are decoupled from physical cameras. The images taken by an array of Basler aviator cameras are stitched together to form a panoramic view of a sports event.
