GoPro, Inc. enabler of some of today’s most immersive and engaging content and Vislink, global technology provider specialising in the collection, management and delivery of high quality video and associated data, have announced a partnership to enable GoPro HERO4 cameras with a professional grade, live, HD wireless broadcast solution.

The two companies have been working together on a transmitter that is small enough to be worn or mounted in unique areas to provide all new perspectives for people watching their favorite live sports and events. The solution will be showcased in the US during popular live events, including Winter X Games 2015 Aspen, select AMA Monster Energy Supercross events and other live sporting events.

GoPro cameras are already used extensively in professional applications, worn by athletes or mounted on gear during televised events. But, to date the footage has been restricted to a post-production workflow with memory cards being shuttled back to the truck to provide a look back at the action. This new solution will be the first time official GoPro products are used to transmit the action in high definition, allowing for integration into a live television broadcast.

“GoPro has changed the way people see the world, creating an immersive viewing experience. Now with unique GoPro perspectives available to broadcasters, watching live events is like being part of the action instead of watching it from the stands. Our partnership with Vislink brings a new level of excitement to live broadcast and we can’t wait to see what players, broadcasters and fans do with this new innovative solution,” said GoPro President Tony Bates.

John Hawkins, Chairman of Vislink PLC commenting on the partnership said, “We are delighted to be partnering with GoPro, a global leader in its field, to develop a unique solution designed specifically for professional broadcasters. For decades Vislink has been the market leader in providing low latency, wireless cameras and transmission systems for highly prestigious live broadcast events. Many of the events where Vislink technology operates are within highly demanding broadcast environments such as the Olympics, MotoGP, WRC World Rally Championship, Formula-E, and theAmerica’s Cup. Working with GoPro, a highly innovative global leader in video content, is testament to our cutting edge technology and its ability to operate in all environments.”
