Wavestore put Greaves Motorsport in the driving seat at Le Mans

Caterham LMP2 APPROVEDWavestore has been commissioned to install 360 degree panoramic cameras in the Greaves Motorsport’s pit area at the 2013 Le Mans 24 Hours.

Wavestore’s True 360 video recording and management solution will allow the company’s senior operations and technical personnel to analyse the team’s performance when its cars stop for refuelling, tyre changes or repairs.

The video captured by the 360-degree cameras will be recorded and stored on a Wavestore recording system which will allow the extraction of individual video clips showing activity during each pit stop.

The Wavestore True 360 solution will be put through its paces at the Official Le Mans Test day on 17th June and then during the whole of the 24 hour race which starts at 15.00 CET on Saturday 22nd June.

The use of 360 degree technology can significantly reduce the number of cameras needed to monitor an area without any blind spots. The ability to create a unique video clip of a moving object, an individual or a group of people is one of the most powerful features provided by Wavestore’s 360 recording and de-warping capability. Operators can view de-warped images created from the recorded images and control a ‘virtual’ PTZ function to track activity and save video clips of an unlimited number of individual events captured in the camera’s entire field of view.

Greaves Motorsport and their new partner, Caterham Motorsport, recently revealed their new livery for the #41 Nissan powered Zytek LM P2 prototype. The car is now in the Caterham Motorsport corporate colours of green and yellow, reflecting the extent of the new partnership with Caterham Technology.

“We have the team, the car and the drivers to succeed and we know what it takes to win in Le Mans,” said Team Manager Jacob Greaves. “We are looking forward to the next few weeks in France and to taking full advantage of the innovative features incorporated into the Wavestore solution, which I am confident will help us in our endeavours to perform to our full potential”.
