Congratulations to four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel on his win at the Race of Champions. The event, held at London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park Stadium on Nov. 20 and 21, 2015, also saw Team England 1’s touring car duo Andy Priaulx and Jason Plato take a storming victory in the Nations Cup.

Delivering thrilling, world-class performances at the event was not just a job for the drivers, though. To provide television viewers with an experience as close as possible to the action, Vislink’s on-board wireless camera systems, supplied by AMP Visual TV, were fitted to the cars. These enabled live video broadcast in high definition directly from the driver’s point to view. Further capability for live on-board transmission was provided via GoPro HERO cameras, each fitted with HEROCast transmitters manufactured by Vislink.

In addition, Vislink’s Clip-On 4 wireless camera transmitters, provided by Mediatec Broadcast Finland, delivered live HD footage from roaming broadcast cameras around the venue. These wireless cameras provided operators the mobility to capture close-up footage not just from the trackside, but also from the pit lane, paddock and podium areas, delivering dramatic high-speed action, plus interviews with the drivers and other celebrities. All of the video transmitted by the on-board cameras, HEROCast transmitters and other wireless cameras was received using Vislink’s L2174 receivers and MDR (modular diversity receive) system.
