PanoCam360 races into action at Le Mans!
PanoCam360 races with Wavestore for Greaves Motorsport at Le Mans. Wavestore installed AMG-Panogenics' 360 degree panoramic cameras in the Greaves Motorsport pit area to allow the company's senior operations and technical personnel to analyse the team's performance when its cars stopped for refueling, tyre changes or repairs.
AMG, the British manufacturer of sophisticated 5 Megapixel cameras and CCTV transmission solutions, supplied their acclaimed PanoCam360 cameras for Wavestore's True 360 video recording and management solution commissioned by Greaves Motorsport at the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours.
Chris Williams, Director of Director of Wavestore, says, "We installed AMG-Panogenics' 360 degree panoramic cameras as part of our Wavestore True 360 solution in the Greaves Motorsport's pit area to allow the company's senior operations and technical personnel to analyse the team's performance when its cars stop for refueling, tyre changes or repairs. The video captured by the 360-degree cameras is recorded and stored on a Wavestore recording system, which allows the extraction of individual video clips showing activity during each pit stop.
This is an excellent example of two market leading technology providers working in harmony to provide a highly effective video monitoring and recording solution. With the support of our technology partners AMG-Panogenics, we are delighted to have been able to provide the Greaves Motorsport team with a highly effective method of monitoring activity in the Le Mans 24 Hours pit area."
David J Myers, Technology Director of AMG Group, comments, "The use of 360 degree technology can significantly reduce the number of cameras needed to monitor an area without any blind spots. The ability to create a unique video clip of a moving object, an individual or a group of people is one of the most powerful features provided by Wavestore's 360 recording and de-warping capability. Operators can view de-warped images created from the recorded images and control a 'virtual' PTZ function to track activity and save video clips of an unlimited number of individual events captured in the camera's entire field of view."
