Furio gets up close and personal at the Amway Cup
TAIWAN: Taiwanese sports network, Video Land, has begun using Ross Video’s Furio Robotic Cameras to provide coverage of the Amway Cup, an international pool championship held in the country’s capital. The announcement marks the first time in Taiwan robotic cameras have been used to enhance the coverage of pool games.
‘I want to make sure that Video Land stays number one in Taiwan,’ enthused Thomas Wang, manager of Video Land. ‘The Furio Robotic Cameras provide extremely steady on-air shots and movement around the pool table, and are also nimble enough to enable operators to capture all the excitement of the game through camera angles a normal camera could never deliver.’
Camera track was laid alongside the table, allowing the cameras to capture action from side to side without being blocked by players, or without getting in their way. Furio was used for close-up angles of players and to follow balls into the pockets.
‘Our overall experience with Ross Video was amazing and the Furios definitely enable us to deliver much better quality and more exciting sports productions,’ Mr Wang deduced. ‘We’re really looking forward to using Furios for our other upcoming sports events.’
