feet. Five different rig variations, ranging from handhelds to robotic
cameras, were used to capture the action.

company's leadership in producing the technology and methodologies
necessary to make integrated 2D and 3D (known as 5D) productions
attractive and scalable options for mainstream broadcasts. To accomplish
this, CPG has developed products that embed 3D functionality into
existing 2D production models without sacrificing flexibility or
