Telemetrics underwater camera

A unique underwater Telemetrics camera system with Sony’s Alpha 9 II or Alpha 1 mirrorless cameras will be deployed by the Associated Press at this year’s major sporting event in Tokyo to capture stunning still images from the bottom of the pool during the Swimming, Diving and Synchronized Swimming events.

The global news agency will use the innovative robotic camera control system which includes a Telemetrics PT-CP-S5 remotely controlled Pan/Tilt Head operated with a Telemetrics robotics panel. Other systems in Tokyo are using a new Telemetrics PL-HOUL-S5 “Pool Housing” under the water to cover the events.

The underwater robotics camera system was designed and built specially for Olympic-sized pools and water sports events. The robotics and camera integration are simple to deploy and use, employing just one Ethernet cable to interface to the robotics systems. This will allow The AP to fully control the camera system remotely (including shutter, focus, zoom, and more) as well as monitor camera feeds live from RCCP-M remote camera control panel.

The single CAT7 also carries power for the entire underwater rig, including the camera, as the system features full support of PoE connectivity.

Telemetrics underwater cameraImages captured with both setups will be transferred immediately to a pool side technician operating a Telemetrics RCCP-M Robotic Camera Control Panel. From there, the high-quality still images will be edited, toned and captioned before being sent to AP members and clients around the world in real time (via FTP features on Sony’s mirrorless cameras). This new Telemetrics camera robotics system, including a weatherproof housing, will also be used to capture the highly imaginative opening and closing ceremonies from high atop Olympic Stadium, in Tokyo.

The AP will bring six PT-CP-S5 compact robotic Pan/Tilt camera systems supporting Sony’s full-frame mirrorless cameras mounted on the Telemetrics PT-CP-S5 Pan/Tilt Head inside a Telemetrics WP-HOU-A9 Weatherproof Camera Housing. The remotely controlled PT-CP-S5 α9 Weather-resistant P/T Head Bundle system has been developed for professional photographers looking to capture high-quality (24 MP) still photos for news outlets and sports events.

“The system is easy to setup and allows unique photos to be captured that would not be possible without this solution,” said Michael Cuomo, Vice President of Telemetrics, adding that a single operator will use the RCCP-M panel to control multiple cameras simultaneously and have full live preview of all the cameras. “These games are history and there is only one opportunity to capture the action. Our robotics are designed to deliver in even these most demanding applications. We’re excited to see the images generated from this collaboration with the Associated Press.”
