Ice Slamming Support
|Miller's Swedish distributor, Protel enjoyed a highly successful 2001, supporting broadcasters and carrying out systems installations around Sweden.
A flagship project for Protel was the completion of 2 x 3-camera broadcast-quality production facilities at Jonkoping and Karlstad for National Ice Hockey Teams, HV71 and Fãrjestads BK. The facilities comprise 3 x camera points feeding into a studio control room, designed to feed game coverage, complete with commercial and slo-mo replay, into 8 x Barco projectors mounted in a square, hanging roof in the middle of the arena.
In addition to main arena replay, there is also a Sports Café at each venue where audio and Barco video monitoring provide additional coverage for the punters. Protel's Mats Junger reports that his customers are very pleased with the Miller tripods, Hitachi cameras and Canon 21x lenses, and are looking forward to the upcoming world championships when they will showcase their production quality to a world stage.
