New sport experience with RiCam
This week hundreds of thousands of spectators are champing at the bit in front of their TVs and on site, as professional winter sport athletes from all over the world swoosh down the snow covered slopes at the alpine skiing world championships. While some ski fans in the Austrian city of Schladming get to see the slope aces live, most of the rest of the winter sports fans can only watch the moving image on the TV. These images just might surprise you this year. For the first time, live camera feeds are being shown from the skier’s perspective.
In the development of a camera which can withstand the ski slopes, the video, audio and communications experts at Riedel Communications had their fingers in the pie. The camera which just came on the market this month, the RiCam, is put onto the ski goggles and sends extraordinary pictures from the athlete’s perspective. The broadcaster ORF is giving you the chance to marvel at these amazing scenes.
