“Lotta på Liseberg” got new camera angle with new technology from Wyberry

Written by on July 7, 2014

Last week, during Monday evening’s broadcast of “Lotta på Liseberg”, a new technology from the company we wrote about a few weeks back, wyberry was used. The patented technology comes from the Gothenburg-based Wyberry Technologies AB, a spin-off company from Chalmers. The company has been listed on ALMI’s Tech 20 list and ranks therefore as one of the country’s hottest technology companies. Lotta på Liseberg is a Swedish “sing-along show” held at the amusement park Liseberg in Gothenburg every Monday evening during the summers.

“We are working towards providing our customers a transfer capacity of 10 Gbit / second. In concrete terms, this is like transferring an entire DVD movie with the best quality in just a few seconds”, says Jens Kjellerup, CEO of Wyberry.

Thanks to the new technology, media production company Eyeworks can give their viewers a great experience through a new camera angle that could send long shots that were not previously possible. The video from the HD camera was sent wirelessly 200 meters to the monitor with negligible latency. Normally this would require using a fiber cable, yet no cable could reach to where the camera was placed.

The company’s CEO Kjellerup explained other benefits of their technology:

“Our technology that transmits data on a high frequency, doesn’t disturb Wi-Fi. This is extra important at Liseberg, where several roller-coasters are controlled by this kind of low frequency technology. We are working towards making media production companies independent of expensive and time-consuming fiber cables. Installing our product only takes minutes before it is up and running and ready for video transfer.”
