Movicom Referee Camera Solution Takes Audience Inside the Glass, Helping Them Connect to all the Thrilling Action  

SWEDEN, MARCH 14, 2019
— When the puck dropped on the Champions Hockey League final last month, IMT Vislink and Movicom
teamed up to provide a compact referee camera solution that gave ice-level points-of-view
during the game between the Frolunda Indians and Red Bull Munich at the
Scandinavium Arena in Gothenburg, Sweden. The Movicom Refcam system used for this event included a mini-camera,
specially designed camera mount, IMTDragonFly wireless camera transmitter and the Vislink 2
input H.264 receiver with Fanbeam antennas to deliver solid coverage throughout
the arena.

Throughout the game, cameras were
remotely controlled by RCP from the OB van using Movicom’s proprietary wireless
telemetry channel. “Bringing the audience closer, helping them stay
connected to the action and providing an ‘inside experience’ is one of the most
thrilling aspects of today’s sports broadcasting,” says Victor Pakhomov, CEO, Movicom.
“Through our productive cooperation with Vislink, we are proud to help
broadcasters meet these goals and enhance their production.”

The lightweight kit (only 7 oz/190 g) can be neatly
and easily attached to referees’ personal helmets, without wires, thereby eliminating
any discomfort for the user. It can be mounted on most any helmet, including hockey,
horseracing and American football. This POV system also bears the possibilities of being
arranged as a chest- or glass-cam solution. Quickly installed and remote controllable within two-mile distance, the
Refcam provides a unique visual experience that brings viewers closer to the action.

“Our wireless technology is ideal for
integration in innovative bodyworn solutions such as the Movicom Refcam,” says
John Payne, President and COO of Vislink Technologies. “We are committed to
delivering systems that help put audiences at the heart of the action as it
happens, allowing them to engage with their favorite sports in unprecedented

continued, “We look forward to showing the IMTDragonFly as well as our full
range of solutions for live production at this year’s NAB 2019 event in Las
Vegas, NV, where we will be welcoming attendees to our booth (C6008).”
