ROBOTIC CAMERA FOR COMPETITIONS IN SWIMMING-POOL
Since 2004, the in-pool photographic equipment developed by EXTREM’ VISION has been used in every Olympic Games and international championship.
The aim is to be ever pushing the technological boundaries of photography and provide an advantage that is the preserve of photographers only. Using a « simple » underwater camera with remote trigger, we are currently working on the possibility of arranging frames within three axes, automatic repositioning, automatic transfer of images across the world, and much more.
During the Beijing Olympics, our schedule of conditions was to allow the AFP to sell images taken from the pool bottom even before the divers had left the water.
The Chinese authorities ordered each photograph to be inspected before it could be sent to Paris. As so many photographs were produced in an hour, China introduced a new exemption.
With its known success the world over, AFP became the leading agency for swimming competition photographs after the Beijing Olympics.
