At least 40 of the new LDK 8300 HD Super SloMo cameras from Thomson Grass Valley will be in use at the Olympic venues around Beijing.

The 8300 shoots at three times the normal frame rate in order to provide detailed slow-motion replays.

Working alongside LDK 8000 SportCam and LDK 6200 HD Super SloMo cameras, the 8300s will be part of the OB facilities provided by 60 European and Asian trucks contracted to host broadcaster Beijing Olympic Broadcasting.
