The Dual Mini Remote (DMR) is a remotely operated camera repositioning system designed to allow capture of close-up action in sports television, predominately football. This can be used with the Hi-motion Antelope Pico Camera to provide slo-mo replays of goals, saves, near misses and any other interesting action inside and around the goal. This highly developed netcam also provides a live feed for broadcasters which they use often for goal kicks. The system is designed to be compact so as not to block pitchside ad hoarding.
The premise of the system is to allow operation of the pole to swing towards and into the net quickly as each half of the match starts and be able to back out quickly and safely when needed – all done completely remotely from the operating position. Once the camera is in position either behind the net or poking through it, the operator can switch to the remote head controls to follow the ball. The joystick operating position can be set up in the compound or pitchside dependant on production requirements.
