SKY Sports score with MRMC robotics

Darts Captured with Precision

MRMC are proud to complete a year of extensive darts coverage with Sky Sports.

Travelling to 20 separate venues around the UK, Ireland and Germany, Sky Sports darts coverage includes the World Darts Championship, Premier League Darts, World Cup of Darts, World Grand Prix Darts & Grand Slam of Darts.

Using MRMC built Ulti-heads and AFC-100 pan tilt heads, controlled from Pan-bars and Joystick panel, the systems travelled from venue to venue, performing reliably and consistently throughout.

The heads were chosen due to their payload and more specifically for their ultra-precision and smooth motion. With cameras set back at distance, the motions from one location on the dart board to another were in some cases just fractions of degrees.

The fine resolution and electronic gearing of the heads allow the camera operators to use very long lenses with fine control and get smooth motion time and time again.
