Polycam Player is an automated robotic video capture system that provides clubs, venues and broadcasters with low-cost, high-mounted and wide angle video footage. Using real-time tracking data from ChyronHego’s TRACAB solution, the Polycam Player accurately follows the action, automatically adjusting zoom and focus to keep the player or team in the frame at all times.
Polycam Player produces very high levels of consistency when capturing footage. This allows analysts and coaches to directly compare video from game to game and more accurately monitor team performance. For broadcasters, this allows complete consistency across multiple venues, while still maintaining creative control.
The real-time player tracking data provided by ChyronHego’s world-leading TRACAB system combined with the Polycam Player solution enables operators to precisely follow their team or individual players over the field of play.
The real-time data provided by the ChyronHego TRACAB system ensures that the camera can follow its subject accurately. In addition to this, the operator can dynamically adjust the framing of the subject to create the desired look but still be confident that the subject will remain in the frame at all times.
A new feature in MHC, Multiviewer will enable clubs and broadcasters the ability to remotely control up to 12 multiple cameras straight from a single multiviewer touch interface.
The new Colour Control Panel will give MHC users true customisation on-the-fly. For the first time, integration of a DSLR into a mixed broadcast camera production is easy with a wide range of remote functions and adjustments including colour, white balance and other image setting parameters.
In the middle of every Robotic Pod is a Nikon D5 DSLR camera. With it’s class leading performance, focus accuracy and incredible image quality – for both stills and video, it is the perfect capture device for almost any application. Specially modified boards integrate the camera with the robot, allowing the two components to work as one and ensuring the capture of video and still imagery is effortless.
The Polycam Player A system physically moves the camera when tracking its subject. This means that you can position the camera almost anywhere within a stadium and still capture the footage you require. The algorithms that control this movement have been written with the analyst in mind and keep a wide angle of view that is ideal for tactical analysis.
The three camera options currently available are: Tactical Camera - side view of the pitch; Tactical High Behind - view from behind the goals at either end; Analyst Player Camera - used to monitor individual player performance.
