TelemetricAt Telemetrics' booth, several robotic camera systems were on display including being used in the U.K. to help that nation’s Olympic swimmers train for the Beijing Olympics. Suspended above the training pool, a robotically controlled camera traverses the track at up to 11.48ft per second to capture the subtleties of a swimmer’s stroke so coaches have a better grasp of how to improve an athlete’s performance.

The company also featured a belt-track robotic camera system being used by Global Television in Canada with an Orad virtual set. Global Television operates the several of the systems installed in a variety of studios across Canada from its Ottawa control center, according to Telemetrics’ Anthony Cuomo.
