SimulCam™ has become so widely used in the broadcast of sport that these days we nearly take it for granted. The video technology captures two athletes competing at different times over the same terrain, whether they are on an alpine ski run, a football pitch, or a race track.
Athletes performances are recorded and the separate films are composited into a single video in which they seem to be competing directly against each other. The result provides unrivalled opportunities for in-depth comparison and analysis, allowing for instant visual contrasts of – depending on the sport – position, style, or trajectory. Nothing can better illustrate the impact that a fraction of a second gained or lost at a particular moment in a competition can have on the final outcome.
Swiss Timing can deliver this popular and effective feature that complements the other services we offer in support of sportscasters and networks.
