Sophisticated Wireless Camera Technology to Enable Internet Streaming

On telekomcup.de, users could stream the TELEKOM CUP 2017 live on their smartphone or PC on July 15, 2017, and watch the matches exactly as they would happen on their TV screen. But that’s not all: viewers were also able to switch between the various camera angles in the stadium and sometimes watch unusual and unique perspectives that were not available when watching the game live on TV. There were also the possibility of selecting angles from different stands or even the mascot’s point of view. In the stadium, the life-size mascots made their way around the field and wore wireless body cameras. This created nine different live images simultaneously that could be viewed on the Internet at any time during the event.

The HDwireless team from Mechernich used wireless camera technology to transmit live images from the Borussia-Park in Mönchengladbach. Mascots wore mini HD cameras and other transmission technology. This enabled them to move freely around the entire stadium. The cameras were either hidden away in the palms of their hands or in the head of promotional costumes. The image signals were sent via RF technology from the mascots to the receiving stations inside the stadium and were then processed in the HDwireless RF1 production vehicle.

Project manager Patrick Nußbaum controled the incoming and outgoing signals, which were then transferred as conventional video signals to the Internet streaming team in the nearby production vehicle. “Our client commissioned us to design and implement this live transmission. The highlight is a camera placed inside the mobile column of the TELEKOM CUP trophy, where it transmits live images without any cables. The entire ultra-lightweight device, including its battery power supply, was installed inside the slim, meter-high column.” Another separate wireless camera was also used for the presentation ceremony. For those interested in these interactive online events, this unique view of the victorious Bayern Munich team is at your fingertips.
