Slomo.tv has released its new mini-II cameras for video-refereeing systems with inter-camera synchronisation technology and new markings.
According to the company, the most important change is that the mini-II cameras are now synchronous. When used with a videoReferee server, the cameras using CloudyGenLock technology synchronise with each other by both phase and frequency. Camera setup can be done either through the server or by using an external remote controller with a joystick and a set of buttons connected via USB.
In addition to this, the scoreboard controller’s data is now recorded in every video frame, and the analogue audio input allows the use of external microphones to record sounds, including the referee’s whistle. The audio level can be displayed on the video output for easy adjustment.
The mini-II camera also boasts a new appearance with the main technical features, including support for Full HD progressive 50/59.98 modes, CloudyGenLock synchronisation, audio input, 3G-SDI and Power over Ethernet, now visible on its housing. Sports for which the camera is suitable are also depicted on the camera housing.
The mini-II series also includes wide-angle panoramic cameras (mini-II-vR-Cam-zoom-Wide) and 10x zoom cameras (mini-II-vR-Cam-zoom).
