The YES Network -- the television home of the New York Yankees -- recently chose Sony's new HDC-3300 high definition slow motion camera for baseball telecasts.
“It’s the greatest single enhancement we’ve made to our production for this season,” said Ed Delaney, vice president of operations for the YES Network.
The network uses the camera in its "mid-first," above-the-field position between first base and home plate. The HDC-3300 camera is mounted with a long lens on a small high hat with a tripod head. It transmits 180 frames per second in full high-definition resolution paired with an EVS server. The camera outputs normal speed signals simultaneously for live feeds through separate digital signal processing. It includes three 2/3-inch high speed progressive CCDs, and enables recording at 1920x1080i or 150i, as well as 1280x720/180p or 150p.
