The only sky jump in North America and the highest in the world, “SkyJump” is a controlled free fall attraction, similar to a vertical zip line where the exhilarating descent is broadcast in Real-Time using VideoComm Technologies new 2.4GHz TCO-2409XT3 Wireless Digital Video System.
The launching pad is located on the 108th floor of Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas, 855 feet above the Las Vegas Strip. Here, thrill-seeking jumpers are harnessed in and attached to a cable that is connected to a descender machine. VideoComm’s wireless video transmitter descends parallel to the jumper at 45mph and broadcasts the entire terrifying jump LIVE to a big screen television located in the SkyJump store.
Guide wires keep the sky jumper on course and on target while the video camera and wireless transmitter descend parallel with the gutsy jumper to the landing zone 855 Feet below the launching pad. Just before reaching the rapidly approaching ground, the sky jumper is slowed down for a controlled and safe landing where onlookers watch.
Patrick Brinckerhoff, Director of Ride Engineering at Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas states:
“VideoComm’s new mobile video transmitter and receiver system does a great job of transmitting the 45mph free fall with a stabilized video signal regardless of the significant amount of environmental interference introduced in these types of applications. Additionally, we found VideoComm’s new configuration and design to be lighter than previous systems which was a plus where in our operation, weight is a major consideration.”
VideoComm is pleased to have introduced the perfect wireless video solution required for this application, allowing onlookers, friends and family of the jumper to point and laugh, say their final goodbyes… kidding! and view the entire high-quality video of each jump in Real-Time from the Stratosphere SkyJump store while purchasing a fresh pair of underwear and other SkyJump trinkets.
