Two Polecam systems were deployed in Kitzbuhel for the 2018 running of the Hahnenkamm on the Streiff. Insane weather conditions hit Europe and Kitzbuhel did not escape. Huge dumps of snow hampered the race preparations throughout the week but come race day on the Saturday the Gods smiled on the little Austrian town.
ORF Television deployed their Polecam at the start with an LMC (Live Motion Concept) Polecam equipped with a hi-speed Antelope Pico at the super fast Hausbergkanter operated by Volker Lehman for the 4th year in a row. Working at 350fps with instant replay capability gave superb and unique shots.
Sunday saw all the equipment airlifted to the slalom race with Volker and the Polecam Pico at the start giving not just fantastic shots out of the gate but great replays as well. The weather on Sunday was not so kind but did not stop racing.
Next stop – 12 Polecam systems are already heading to Korea for the Winter Olympics.
