FINA World Championship Budapest 2017 starts Friday 14th July and WATLICAM will be at the synchronized swimming venue as a new technological tool for judges. WATLICAM will allow knowing what is going on beyond the surface and helping judges decisions about any penalty situation.
51 countries and 383 synchro swimmers will compete at Heroes Square (Hősök tere), where two big pools are located and will be the perfect stage for the Synchronised swimming world championship competition at FINA Budapest 2017. An amazing competition with 9 events in: Solo (Tech and Free), Duet (Tech and Free), Team (Tech and Free), Free Combination and Mixed Duet (Tech and Free). Finals will be at 11.00 h and preliminaries at 19.00 h
In all 9 events and for the first time Watlicam will be used as a backup for the judges and only in penalty situations. Watlicam allows seeing at the same time all movements underwater and above the water view. The integrated waterline image is divided by a horizontal straight line that remains clean despite waves and water ripple effects.
