Broadcast RF made broadcast history in February 2015, by bringing a state-of-the-art professional HD miniature wireless camera to the broadcast market, the VeloVue HD.
The VeloVue HD, Broadcast RF’s new wireless point of view (POV) camera, was launched at the 2015 UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Paris.
For the first time in the history of the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, some riders’ bikes were equipped on-board cameras, used to broadcast action live from a completely different perspective during the competition at Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines in France.
Working in conjunction with the UCI and HBS, using VideoSys Broadcast as a technical partner, Broadcast RF produced a full HD camera and wireless transmitter, small and lightweight enough to be mounted on track bikes as well as many other athlete mounted applications.
The VeloVue HD has Cobham RF technology at its core, along with a bespoke mini camera design developed by VideoSys, and weighs in at 199g (222g inclusive of bespoke bike mounts) for the complete camera and transmission system, including battery.
This is a ground breaking project, the first system of its kind. With this new combination of camera and RF technology in a single package we can finally bring an angle that has always been missing from track cycling coverage that will delight both the hardcore fans and viewers new to the sport.
