GoPro、ESPNにXゲーム・ゴールドを撮影

HD HERO カメラは、2011年サマーXゲームにおけるESPNのテレビ制作の革新的コンテンツの作成に使用されました。

カリフォルニア州ハーフムーン・ベイ (2011年8月18日) - 名高いサマーXゲームにおいて、世界の主導的アクティビティカメラ会社であるGoProは、ゲームおよび (2011年サマー Xゲームの放送制作期間中に使われた)ビデオに関して、初の編集をリリースしました。GoProは、ESPNのXゲームのテレビ放送に、没入型コース・プレビューと、目を見張るような毎日のハイライトを作成しました。

 

The TV audience was taken on a one-of-a-kind ride with GoPro course previews of key events, such as BMX Big Air, Skate Big Air, Skate Vert, Rally Cross, and the Street Skate Park. And each night, ESPN’s X Center would feature a daily GoPro highlight video, shot entirely with HD HERO cameras that captured some of the most dramatic moments of the games. These one of a kind shots, such as from the bottom of the skateboard or from the seat post of the BMX bike, gave TV viewers a new and dynamic way to experience the X Games from the athletes’ perspective. GoPro pulled out all the stops, reaching a crescendo with its two-minute highlight video that was used in the celebration and conclusion of the 2011 Summer X Games.

「2011年夏のX Gamesは、GoProにとって大きな節目でした」とGoProの創立者兼CEOのNicholas Woodmanは述べました。「我々は興奮する以上にX Gamesにおけるテレビ放送でどのようにカメラが使われるか気を使いました。ローカルのスケートやバイク店で販売されているこの同じカメラがX Gamesのようなプロの舞台でも使われることを思うと信じられない気持ちです。当社はもちろんこれと同じような将来のプロダクションを楽しみにしています。」

The versatility of the HD HERO with its small size and mount-anywhere design enabled the cameras to be positioned in numerous ways, be it on the athlete, their equipment or trackside to capture the unique shots. The team also used a first-of-kind, handheld camera array consisting of 48 synched HD HERO cameras to capture and deliver dramatic action shot sequences, giving the viewer a continuous and flowing multi-angle view of the athletes as they performed their tricks. Even with 48 HD HERO cameras attached, GoPro’s experimental camera array is still light enough to be carried by one person and to be positioned in the middle of the action. To duplicate this type of set-up with traditional production cameras, the cost would reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and would be too impractical to be used during a live sporting event. GoPro is excited to showcase the versatility of the HD HERO camera in this new and exciting way and is proud that footage from it’s innovative camera array was used in ESPN’s broadcast of the Summer X Games.
