“We are pleased to align with the Sports Video Group and look forward to working with the SVG community of sports professionals. We believe in 360 VR’s potential to fundamentally change the sports viewing experience whether for game action, training, or behind-the-scenes: users can independently explore their own field-of-view, creating a “being-there, from-anywhere” experience, and VR will open up new monetization opportunities for broadcasters and sports leagues.” said Jean Mayrand, President & CEO, Vantrix. “We believe our products are a perfect match for broadcasters and sports leagues who can attract and engage a new generation of viewers by embracing VR as a new and complementary type of media and taking a system-wide approach focusing on high quality immersive video. At IBC2016, we launched the Vantrix PRO series of VR cameras for broadcast and live streaming, and the Vantrix 360 glass-to-glass system for live 360 VR capture, delivery and experience."
The Vantrix PRO series is a purpose-built broadcast-quality capture system for live events such as sports, news, concerts as well as studio and post production. The Vantrix PRO25 camera is designed for the ultimate capture quality and is ruggedized with an IP-67 rating. The camera utilizes a single lens to capture hemispherical distortion-free 360x182° video output that requires no stitching, reducing post processing time significantly without quality degradation. The camera delivers broadcast quality video with a market-leading resolution of up to 5000 x 5000, up to 12-bit color depth and 240fps frame rate. The video feed is processed by a control station and prepared for cloud livestreaming and/or handoff to broadcast production via 4 virtual HD-SDI camera outputs @60fps.
Vantrix is a global leader in next generation video services for transcoding and 360 virtual reality systems. Since 2004, Vantrix products have been deployed in over 75 networks, providing high-quality media experiences to over 1 billion subscribers worldwide.
