Wireless HD remote camera system captures excitement at Super Bowl XL


Aerial Video Systems used the Link HD, a Thomson LDK-6000 camera and its own proprietary fiber optic antenna system to transmit HD wireless shots at Super Bowl XL.

For Super Bowl XL, ABC Sports contracted Burbank-based Aerial Video Systems (AVS) for two HD wireless camera systems to assist in the coverage of the game.

The HD wireless cameras allowed the cameraman to navigate the heavily congested sidelines without dragging cables and transmit back images to the truck. In addition, an HD wireless camera system was deployed to cover the crowd and up into the catwalks far above the playing surface to capture the excitement of the game.

The video and camera control interfaces were invisible and seamless to the truck. AVS used the Link HD, a Thomson LDK-6000 camera and the AVS proprietary fiber optic antenna system. System-wide latency of the HD system is a little more than 40 milliseconds, well under 1.5 frames, allowing for direct integration without sync issues.
