Camera operators who are familiar with filming objects in water know that light refraction makes it difficult to view underwater scenes in relationship to above water happenings. The new technology shown in the video above utilizes a 2-camera system in tandem and set to different focal points to correct a real-time display. This makes it easier for both judges and viewers of synchronized swimming to enjoy the performance in clarity.
The video also shows how real-time helicopter footage can have overlapping graphics, similar to that of Google Earth, from in-air shoots of large cities when reporting live traffic, large public events or disasters. Also, take a look at the super small broadcast vehicle in comparison to its bigger, bulkier counterpart—the TV van. Running on electricity—this vehicle is smaller, quieter and more efficient than traditional broadcast vehicles.
