Marggraff also with his production company LiveMotionConcept he supplied all Ultramotion cameras for this premiére event in Azerbaijan.
“It was both a challenge and great opportunity to integrate our specialised Miniature HSSMS into ISB world feed production” states Marggraff. “The Antelope PICO mounted to Polecams created completely new angles and shot wonderful live- and replay shots at different venues” he says. “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 fantastic overhead shots and underwater replays were major elements of the ISB World Feed.
Marggraff mentions “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”commending his crew for their work at the European Games in Baku.”
