Building on their successful collaboration in providing ‘Refcams’ - helmet-mounted cameras worn by referees - at last year’s Champions Hockey League, Movicom and Vislink continue to expand the line-up of ultra-small wireless wearable cameras for use in live sports production. The most well-known Refcam kit includes a mini-camera, Movicom’s specially designed and engineered camera mount with Vislink’s IMT Dragonfly wireless transmitter, which can be quickly mounted on almost any type of protective gear, including referees’ preferred personal helmets. The kit weighs just under 7oz/190g and has no external wires which speeds and facilitates mounting and dismounting it.
