…an IP-based robotic camera system that enables networked cameras to simultaneously track a subject of interest from multiple perspectives.
Critically, the powerful Polycam system allows a single operator to do all this and more, automatically controlling the synchronous movement of numerous cameras while providing accurate tracking shots during live events. Featuring IP connectivity and scalable architecture, broadcasters will benefit from unrestricted operating distances and ease of integration with next generation IP broadcast cameras, lenses and statistical and image analysis technology.
The Polycam system is designed to simplify the production process and reduce budget costs, leaving broadcasters to focus on what they do best – making great productions.
The Polycam system offers several key benefits over traditional multi-camera setups:
Polycam’s far-reaching versatility makes the system ideal for:
Polycam can be operated by a number of MRMC control interfaces including pan-bars and joysticks while zoom and focus can also be adjusted using existing broadcast controllers. Zoom, focus, (plus iris if required) and robotic head movement commands are sent as IP data to camera positions deployed in the field. This allows interfacing with a live production via multiple delivery methods including:
The Polycam family is available in three different configurations:
Allows the operator to manually and simultaneously control multiple perspectives/cameras from a single controller.
Designed to simplify control of multiple cameras at race tracks and other circuits where the path of the subject matter is well known; the operator need only change the speed of the cameras following the path.
Interfaces with third party image analysis and tracking systems such as ChyronHego's TRACAB, and allows automatic control of the camera’s point of interest by simply selecting which player or point of interest to follow.
Polycam can be used in conjunction with several robotic heads including:
