Northvale, NJ 1/9/13- The NFL Network has once again deployed Azzurro Group’s newly introduced AzzurroCam Transportable Camera System. It was previously used at the NY Jets Training Camp and was most recently used from Fed Ex Field for live stand-ups, post game interviews and press conferences during the 12/30/2012 game between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys and during the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks wild card game on 1/06/2013 This new portable system integrates seamlessly with the NFL network’s existing TeamCam system currently installed at more than 50 locations throughout the United States; every NFL team site, NFL League Offices and several remote analyst home and office locations. The AzzurroCam Transportable System enables two-way video transmission over a public Internet first mile in a self contained unit that can integrate with the AzzurroCam system or client provided camera and production systems. The entire system is controlled via the NFL Networks NOC in Culver City. In addition, NFL Films Mt. Laurel facility can control any of the remote sites and Azzurro’s 24/7 NOC has actively monitors the health of each system, the network and can remotely control any location in the event of an emergency offering multiple levels of control and redundancy.
The AzzurroCam Transportable Camera System requires minimal set up time with little advance notice necessary. Capable of transmitting HD or SD over existing public internet, the unit provides a total portable production solution yet it’s small enough to be baggage checked at the airport.
“This is the total package as far as an end-to-end portable studio solution” said John Bonaccorso, Director of Operations at Azzurro HD. “We’re feeding full HD at 5Mbps, with latency less than a traditional satellite feed.”
The NFL has plans to deploy multiple AzzurroCam Transportable Systems in the future and will be featuring the system during the ProBowl in Hawaii. “We feel that our transportable camera solution is the wave of the future, and has the potential to give our customers overall value back on the cost savings over traditional transmission outlets from occasional venues.” Said Francis G Luperella, President & CEO of Azzurro Group. “The time is now to make this technological advancement in the way we have been broadcasting live feeds in the past.”
Product Specifications: The AzzurroCam Transportable system is housed in a 4RU shock mounted road case capable of bi-directional HD/SD transmission. For studio needs, two additional road cases supply camera, return video monitor, program audio, IFB, PL and a full lighting kit – all which can be remotely controlled from any off-site location.
