BBC covers Wimbledon in HD

Presteigne Broadcast supplied Grass Valley LDK 6000 HD cameras and LDK 6200 Super Slo-mo HD cameras to the BBC for its coverage of the 2006 Wimbledon Lawn Tennis Championships.

Although Wimbledon has been used for experimental HD coverage in the past, this is the first year the BBC broadcast the event in high definition on the Sky platform and its trial terrestrial service.

The LDK6200 delivered high-speed acquisition for real-time playback of high-quality slow motion. The LDK 6000 WorldCam camera delivers multi-format HD support and is widely used for outside broadcast applications.
