MRMC and Camerobot have extensive
understanding
and
experience
working
with
large
broadcast
companies such as Globo, Sky, ARD,
and ZDF. The amalgamation of MRMC
and
Camerobot
technology,
products, application software

In other news, Sky Sports
deployed
MRMC
technology
to provide a control solution
for the two main match-board
Sky Sports PDC Darts cameras at the 2017 PDC Darts
Championships coverage
Championships.

"MRMC has been providing
robotic systems for Sky
Sports' coverage of the
PDC Darts Championships
for four years," said Steve
Boland, MRMC Broadcast
Director.
"During
the
2013-2016
seasons the robotic systems
were used in elevated
positions which operators
could not access directly. Control
of camera moves was extended
to a backstage position where the
operators could use encoded pan bar
systems to simulate the function of
manually controlled cameras.
"Working closely with the production
and technical facilities teams over
the years, MRMC was able to adapt
features that helped enhance the
camera operator's coverage. Providing
pre-set functionality allowed the
operators to quickly get to a position
on the dartboard to keep pace with the
play."
In October 2016, MRMC was acquired
by Nikon Corporation.

atican Media, Globecast, Rai,
Eutelsat and Sony transmitted the
Christmas Eve Midnight Mass live via
satellite in Ultra HD.
On December 24, the Christmas Night
Mass, presided over by Pope Francis in
St. Peter's Basilica, was broadcast live
via satellite in Ultra HD on Rai 4K on
channel 210 of the Tivùsat free-to-air
satellite platform.
The initiative took place under the
auspices of the 'Segreteria per la
Comunicazione' of the Holy See, led by
the Prefect Monsignor Dario Edoardo
Viganò, who managed the event.
This was handled via the 'Audiovisual
Production' part of the Vatican
and saw the international debut of
Vatican Media, the new brand that is
managing and developing multimedia
productions for the Vatican. This is
one of the reforms of the Holy See's
communication system as requested
by Pope Francis.
A team of world-class excellence

consisting of Globecast,
Eutelsat, Rai, Sony and
Tivùsat provided the
resources to bring the
event to Italian homes
via the highest quality
UHD images.
The ceremony holds
great meaning and is
eagerly awaited all over
the world, with Italian
viewers who own a
4K-ready TV equipped
with the Tivùsat CAM
able to view the UHD
signal.
The
event
will
be
broadcast
simultaneously on Rai
1 and on Rai 1 HD via
digital terrestrial TV and satellite,
as well across the world through the
usual distribution used by the Vatican.
Alessandro Alquati, General Manager
of Globecast Italia, commented: "One
year after the transmission of the Holy

Messa di Natale (Christmas Eve Midnight Mass) on RAI 4K Hot Bird

Door Closing Ceremony in Ultra HD,
and at a time of particular importance
for the transition to 4K, Globecast is
honoured and proud to be involved
in the Holy See's Segreteria per la

Comunicazione, working together
with a powerful team of technological
partners. Special thanks go to NTT
Electronics for providing the 4K HEVC
encoding equipment."
