Rome / Arese, 7 February 2019
Sparkle, the International Services arm of the TIM Group and among the top ten global operators, announces its partnership with Internet.ONE, Italian-Swiss service provider active in the broadband and cloud computing market, for the supply of international capacity to support the ONE.vision automated shooting system, aimed at the motorsport sector and already tested in the main European racetracks and in the Italian Grand Prix.
Thanks to cameras based on Fuzzy logic, telemetry and a sophisticated artificial intelligence system, ONE.vision allows to shoot dozens of cars / motorcycles on the track, at the same time and with different angles, providing a fundamental aid for the race direction. The system also makes available to each vehicle a customized production able to manage internal and external shots with 360 ° camera cars and to live-stream the driving experience with quality video up to 8K, usable for TV productions, live streaming and social media.
For data flow management, the system relies on Internet.ONE Cloud infrastructure and uses Sparkle’s European fiber network, capable of transporting video content with capacity up to 100G thanks to the City2City service, thus allowing thousands of users in Italy, Switzerland, Germany and the United Kingdom to watch live videos.
The agreement with Internet.ONE confirms Sparkle as a reference partner for high quality and fast international connectivity, able to support mission critical applications thanks to its proprietary fiber optic network.
