Jimmy Jib

without comments

In addition to our Steadicam rigs and RF Camera links, our specialist camera support department, Steadi Facilities Cameras & Vision, now has a full Jimmy Jib available for use. Most recently, the Jib has been used in 18ft arm reach configuration to cover Athletics, Half Marathons, and most recently an awards show at London’s Roundhouse in Camden, the venue for this year’s annual City & Guilds Awards.

Coverage of the walk-ups of winners, winner’s photographs, beauty shots of the room, and coverage of the band on-stage were all  providedby our Jimmy Jib, as a part of a 4-camera HD PPU.

England Athletics U20′s Championships 2011

without comments

Steadi Facilities Cameras & Vision are proud to be working on a range of Athletics coverage throughout 2011. The first of these events was the England Athletics U20’s Championship weekend at the Birmingham NIA in February.

We provided a full broadcast solution including: one Project Manager, four Camera Operators, one Steadicam Operator, eleven cameras including three robotic mini-cams and three RF cameras, two PPU’s linked via Matrix, cabled and wireless Comms systems, two on-site Editors, two ingest machines, two FCP location edit suites, and one FCP upload machine.

With a brief requiring online upload whilst on-site we delivered live Multicamera coverage of all track and field events taking place simultaneously within the stadium.

Cameras were split into two camera teams; one for track and one for field. However, we also demonstrated flexibility to group the camera teams, swap the camera teams and also operate PSC – an over-running schedule caused an array of issues that were all overcome.

Editing and uploading was completed in its entirety by the end of day two and our work drove a huge volume of online traffic to the England Athletics website – the most hits it had received since the Commonwealth Games of 2002, with 25,000 views being achieved within 24 hours of the event taking place.
