Personalities such as French Rugby Union star player Yoann Huget, Belgian jockey Christophe Soumillon, Dutch athlete Tia Hellebaut, French footballer Ludovic Giuly, French motocross racer Romain Febvre and many others were present at the Grimaldi Forum to award the prizes. The award ceremony was held under the jury presidency of champion boxer Evander Holyfield.

International Sports Broadcasting was awarded the Golden Podium Award for 'Innovative Use of Mini HSSM (High Speed Slow Motion) Cameras'. This coverage of the first European Games in Baku was produced by Ursula Romero and the different sports were directed by Felix Marggraff, Koen Van Mourik and Ursula Romero.

Marggraff also with his production company LiveMotionConcept supplied all Ultramotion cameras for this premier event in Azerbaijan.

"It was both a challenge and great opportunity to integrate our specialised Miniature HSSMS into ISB world feed production"stated Marggraff. "The Antelope PICOs mounted to Polecams created completely new angles and shot wonderful live and replay shots at different venues. I am glad that ISB endorsed our vision to use this technology broadly throughout the whole event."

Carefully selected camera positions and dynamic moves paired with up to 350 frames per second with built-in deflickering guaranteed stunning replays from action sports like Mountain Biking, Beach Volleyball and Beach Soccer – venues directed by Felix Marggraff. An Antelope PICO Polecam System was also used at the Cycling and Swimming venues where both outstanding overhead shots and underwater replays were major elements of the ISB World Feed.

Felix Marggraff concluded "Receiving the Golden Podium Award means a lot. It´s such an increase in motivation for all the staff involved to continue the hard work to develop new products and to supply highest standard production services to our valued clients."

About Polecam: Polecam's attraction has always been a winning combination of portability, speed of rig/derig, which adds production value without hassle. Achieving crane shots where no other rig could go and getting right in to where the action is. Crane shots up a mountain! No problem. In a small location studio! No problem. On a small boat! No problem.

The company has continued to develop and refine Polecam, never standing still and today Polecam Systems offer a wide choice of ways to own a rig. The Polecam Starter Pack (PSP+) is an entry level platform with a maximum payload of 3.6kg and will comfortably accommodate all the leading manufacturers' larger format cameras. Alternatively for those wishing to literally "just add a camera" then the Polecam Professional Pack (PPP) with either Long, Wide or Narrow head is ultimate camera crane system. Configured as 7th Heaven, the Polecam rig has an extended reach of 8m/26' and when fitted with a minicam, you can get right in close to where the action really is, giving a unique creative viewpoint to your productions.

There is a whole range of HD Minicams, other specialised cameras, Remote heads, Remote Controls and Accessories, including underwater add-ons and Extreme Ultra Motion too.
Polecam will change the way you shoot and the way you think about shooting.
