FishFace & Pico debut for Swimming & Diving Analysis

Slow motion swimming with Polecam and Antelope Pico

Polecam recently visited the Luton Active Pool to test out the FishFace system with an Antelope Pico to record Ultra-Motion of swimmers and divers.

"The aim of this was two-fold," said Steffan Hewitt, owner of Polecam. "Firstly to validate the system and generate footage for future events and secondly as a training tool for the coaches."

The FishFace system was developed at the request of Laurie Frost of Camera Corps (a Vitec Videocom company) for the 2000 Sydney Olympics for a new view on swimming and diving. Since then it has become a standard tool for all major aquatic events including the swim section of the Triathlon. Now by adding the Antelope Pico into a re-designed housing to attach to the standard FishFace, ultra-motion shots at 350fps can now be achieved.

"Sport no longer happens without some form of ultra-motion for replays," said David Jenkins, Diving Development Officer for Luton Active, "but for us to be able to replay a shot instantly and then play back on a 50" monitor poolside is an invaluable training tool and we look forward to using it again."

"Instant analysis but also having this high quality full HD footage for further analysis on my laptop after the session is also priceless." Peter Woodbridge, Swimming Development Officer for Luton Active. "Playing back shots poolside immediately after the event is so much more powerful than the next day. It's fresh and adjustments can be made immediately. Formula One pit-stops or 50m freestyle sprinters, the benefit is the same."

Mark Sallaway, a veteran Polecam/FishFace operator was on hand to run the 3 section (3.5m) Polecam while Steffan piloted the Pico and its instant replays. The Pico was running up to 350fps at full HD.

Dan Palfreman, Luton Active Manager was extremely helpful in making this happen as well as all the simmers and divers. Thank you.
