For reliable sports broadcasts, the National Hockey League continues to rely on VidOvation’s wireless video camera’s.
This replay still-frame on the left was a potentially game tying goal between the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals this last weekend that was assumed to hit the top of the net inside the goal, however, upon goal-cam replay by our wireless video camera’s we see that it bounced off the cross bar.
On the left is a beauty shot from our wireless video camera capturing a great shot against the Minnesota Wild in the last 2.7 seconds of another recent game by T.J. Oshie, right wing of the St. Louis Blues.

When a remote or hostile location makes it impossible to send an HD signal over traditional means, what options does a broadcaster have? The NHL may have one of the most extreme environments needing to deliver a clear signal to a replay official at hockey operations, not at the venue, instantly to confirm whether or not a goal was scored. A cable can’t be run through ice, the goal gets hit by athletes skating full speed and a puck traveling over 100 MPH, and the mobile band is saturated by the fans in the arena. During this session attendees will explore the ways to implement, install, and support a 60 GHz wireless camera system that can deliver a clear, uncompressed HD signal up to 500 meters. They will also get to understand the technical and implementation challenges the NHL overcame and be able to add this insight into their projects to bridge the gap where traditional cable and wireless won’t work.
