IBC 2014: Broadcast RF will show a new head-mounted wireless Refcam system at IBC.

The HD camera features an HD-SDI output which feeds directly to a Cobham Nano HD transmitter, which Broadcast RF said makes the system “smaller, lighter and nicer to wear”.

Broadcast RF supplies the camera with remote camera control so that OB vision engineers can control the picture, exposure and colour matching.

The Cobham transmitter, a cooling fan camera data receiver and battery are housed in a backpack that is worn under the referee’s uniform. Two antennas are incorporated into the backpack’s shoulder straps.

The camera system has been in development for the past 18-months.
