Video capture and display for high speed sport
End user: NASCAR
Technology partners: Telestream, Cinesys and Quantum
NASCAR racing is a fast and furious sport, with thrills and spills adding to the excitement. Race officials need to keep on top of the action, judging blame and apportioning penalties when incidents occur. To help them, they capture the output of 18 trackside HD cameras, which are then available for instant replay by the race officials. They can check the incident from multiple angles, slowing the action down to be certain of what happened.

One of the biggest system integration projects undertaken in recent years supported the launch of Sky News Arabia in May of this year. While the infrastructure is firmly file-based with as much emphasis on connection to social media as to ingest, the centre itself still has to operate as a highly pressurised broadcast centre.
