IBC 2013: I-Movix will launch what it described as the world’s first automatic de-flickering system for live broadcast at IBC.
D-flicker, which is designed for use with I-Movix’s ultra-slow motion camera systems, has been designed to allow broadcasters to overcome the problems sometimes caused by the lighting conditions in sports venues.
It provides automatic de-flickering and de-noising functionality, together with tools for enhancing the quality and sharpness of ultra-motion shots.
Previous deflickering technologies were based on post-production techniques, making them impractical for live broadcast, I-Movix said.
“Ultra-motion shots now look better than ever before, so broadcasters can at last integrate incredible extreme slow motion into any live situation,” said I-Movix chief executive Laurent Renard.
“A lot of R&D has gone into making D-flicker an efficient and simple to use solution, and this breakthrough extends the clear lead that I-Movix cameras have as the best ultra-motion systems on the market.”
The system can be used with SprintCam Vvs HD and X10 and X10+solutions from I-Movix, combined with XT servers from EVS.
D-flicker is not available for use with other high-speed cameras in the sports broadcast market.
