Sky Television introduced its newest toy at Eden Park on Saturday night with the first New Zealand outing of the spidercam.

The Austrian-developed high definition overhead camera was used for the first time in New Zealand at the All Blacks match on the weekend as part of a trial for the upcoming Rugby World Cup.

The camera will be used for 12 matches at the tournament in Auckland and Wellington, starting with the All Blacks match against France on September 24.

Sky Sports head Kevin Cameron said the broadcaster was using the Bledisloe Cup test as a trial to prove the camera will not be a distraction for players.

“The team operated the camera for the Six Nations and they worked out that during play a level of about 20m high [was acceptable], and when play stops, such as for penalty goals, it could be placed nearly at grass level.”

Temporary structures were built at the edges of Eden Park’s stands to create the cable lines that are required to run the camera.

Winches are used to tighten and loosen four Kevlar cables that enable the camera to move in any direction at a speed of up to 8m per second.

Another spidercam will be imported for use at Wellington Westpac Stadium.
