Cameras for Sports Technology

Sport Broadcasting

High resolution, fast frame rates

The proverbial photo finish in professional sports is likely the most classic imaging application a camera could be used in. The availability of high-speed cameras opens the door to new possibilities from improving the fan experience to making the correct call with goal line technology, instant replays, digital umpire/referee, or detailed motion analysis to name a few.

Our cameras are heavily used within sports applications and in particular those requiring long cable runs in stadiums or arenas, for example, where our simplified fiber interface outperforms any interface in the industry. They are also the smallest form-factor for the provided performance, which allows for placement where conventional broadcast cameras cannot be used.

Multi-camera accurate synchronization

Many of our customers in the broadcasting fields use multiple cameras per system. This means two or more cameras will be capturing images at the same time requiring precise synchronization to ensure optimal results to analyse high-speed events. All our cameras support IEEE1588 PTP synchronization. The PTP feature is supported through our Emergent eSDK software, which includes functional code examples to get you started.

Latest CMOS sensor technology

Our 10 GigE and 25 GigE camera models utilize the latest sensors from Sony, AMS, and Gpixel. These newest sensors provide high resolution images at the highest frame rates, as well as stunning color using color temperature optimized white balance and color correction matrix processing to capture every moment with the highest levels of imaging precision.

SMPTE ST 2110 compliant

We also leverage Mellanox support for SMPTE ST 2110 compliance for the highest performance in broadcast networking support. SMPTE 2110 is an exciting new standard that allows production to move video data over IP. This will allow broadcast and entertainment customers to use our robust industrial cameras in their applications at a fraction of the cost of typical studio and professional cameras that are SMPTE 2110 compliant on the market today.
