Compact remotely operated systems such as Q-Ball allow dramatic main-screen and second-screen content to be captured from multiple sources quickly, efficiently and economically. They give producers the freedom to source live video from up to 98 cameras under full control from a two or three-person production crew or even a single operator. Whether in the studio, on the sports field, on the music stage or out in the jungle, day or night, these cameras can get right into the action, providing a lot more bang for your production buck.” www.cameracorps.co.uk Adding 4 four live sports channels T TNET, the largest internet service provider in Turkey, has chosen a broadcast playout system from PlayBox Technology for four high-definition live sports channels at its Esentepe transmission centre in Istanbul.
