AVer Camera's on Circuit Zandvoort

The Formula1 circuit of Zandvoort has been equipped with AVer PTC310U Auto Tracking Camera

Formula 1 back to the Netherlands!

Just north of the Dutch coastal town of Zandvoort, Circuit Zandvoort is now able to broadcast, record, or stream with our PTC310U. Thanks to our distributor Full AVL, DRM Showtechniek from Raamsdonksveer realized a streaming studio equipped with the AVer auto tracking cameras at this beautiful location.

On August 7, 1948, the first race took place on the track that had just been asphalted for the first time. From that moment on, numerous competitions have been held on the circuit, including the perhaps most famous Formula 1 Dutch Grand Prix, which last took place in Zandvoort in 1985. The big comeback of this F1 race in the Netherlands would actually take place after 35 years, in May 2020, but has been postponed to 2021 due to Covid-19.

More than just races on the track

Besides the regular competitions and races, this unique location is also perfect for facilitating various events on and around the circuit. Because it is increasingly important, especially at business events, to be properly and professionally portrayed, DRM Showtechniek was able to realize a complete studio solution. This hybrid studio is fully equipped to facilitate a complete live stream broadcast or studio recording in a modern and special decor.

"We were looking for a camera that can handle very diverse light conditions’’ When we talk about equipping a complete studio in where the use of the latest techniques in the field of video and streaming are crucial, the choice of the right camera is very essential.

Mitch De Bever of DRM Showtechniek: ''It was important for us to choose cameras that can handle the most diverse lighting conditions, because the background can consist of a view over the circuit in daylight, which ensures a large incidence of light, but just as well from a decor of LED screens in combination with studio lighting. After testing different brands and making pilot shots, we chose the AVer PTC310U cameras. In addition to the perfect image quality, the technical options such as auto tracking and full network integration ensure that the complete system can be set up and controlled according to your wishes. For the global operation of the cameras, we have chosen the CL01 controller from AVer''
