NHK Twinscam was used for the first time at the Open Synchronized Swimming Championship, held in Japan in 2010.
NHK’s Twinscam is a specially designed digital-optical-mechanical video camera, invented by Japanese public broadcaster NHK in 2010. This camera has been introduced with the chief purpose of covering all aquatic sports events in a better as well as detailed manner. London Olympics 2012 was the first international event where NHK Twinscam was used to shoot groundbreaking coverage of the synchronized swimming events.
Twinscam is a solution to the problem of entire view which existing old cameras failed to capture underwater.
NHK Twinscam uses two cameras: one above the water and one below the water. The images shot by both the cameras are combined to give a single view as being shot by a single camera.
NHK Twinscam has made audiences across the globe, watching aquatic sports more thrilling than before.
NHK Twinscam shows synchronized swimming in a way never seen before.
