Spidercam, flycam, hypersensitive microphone and powerful cameras. The evolution of recording techniques applied to the football and sport in general seems to have no boundaries and continually acquires new words and ideas to improve production. The applications are renewed from year to year endless. There is no limit to the imagination and some product takes its cue directly from the superpowers. For now you can listen what athletes whisper or observe the smallest details of a goal through micro cameras placed on the goalposts.
“They’re all applications that result from the use of military money and research” recalls Angelo Carosi, Sky director, considered the Guru of the sport recordings; he follow from years the league from his cab in front of twenty monitor.
In recent years, the matches seem to have become almost marginal, the difference is the details. “Now a match has become a movie”, said the Sky director years ago.
Have not been found yet valid solutions for professional use of drones. In addition to special permission to fly over the heads of the spectators, the times seem still very limited (only 7-8 minutes of battery life) as well as the action range in the air that reaches 40 meters maximum, and there is also the dependence by weathering. At the moment the technology more “evolved” just seems to be about sound and HD video. Meanwhile, Sky, is stimulated by his talent Vialli who dreams about micro cameras on players. “On players is complicated – said the director – but about the referees is more feasible. The problem is the collaboration of stakeholders, which currently doesn’t exist”.
