HDwireless transmitting at the TELEKOM CUP
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.
