This year, you can experience All-Star Weekend in an entirely different way. NBA TV Broadband used PVI's SpinCam™ technology for its coverage of the Sprite Rising Stars Dunk contest and the 56th Annual NBA All-Star Game. Multiple cameras, uniformly distributed around the participants captured up to a 360-degree, near-high definition view of their dunks.
Check out this unique way of experiencing the game's most exciting moments:
As the most experienced full-service designer, developer and operator of visionbased, virtual image technology in the market, PVI has historically provided services in two main areas: Digital advertising and product insertion, and Digital programming enhancements.
In addition, using its vision-based technology, PVI is at the forefront of developing new applications that will further revolutionize television viewing for consumers and extend the popularity of live sporting events and other entertainment programming to new generations of viewers.
SpinCam, which debuted during the 2007 NBA All-Star Weekend, gives viewers a 3 dimensional perspective of sports action by using up to 100 cameras sharing a single point of focus. A single operator controls viewer perspective and action playback, which can be from any camera perspective and either forward or backward in time.
