Polecam Systems to Show Latest Rigs at IBC

Polecam Systems will we be showing the latest Polecam rigs including the Starter Pack PSP, the new fine control Polecam motorized heads, and also new cameras from Toshiba, IO Industries, Panasonic and the new Hi-Speed Antelope Pico minicam.

Based in the UK, Polecam Systems has seen sales increase and broaden into a wider user base since the introduction of new features which bring entry level cost down, and have significantly upgraded the rig’s motorized heads and also enabled the use of larger high end cameras such as the Canon C300, Canon and Nikon DSLRs, the Black Magic Design cameras, RED Epic and others from Sony and Panasonic.

Graeme Chapman, managing director of Polecam Systems said “With the range of exciting new large sensor video and DSLR cameras that can now be used on Polecam as well as the traditional HD minicams, you have a very exciting single-operator lightweight and easily transportable crane system that will add production value to any program. Polecam success keeps on growing, with many hundreds of owner operators now around the world. Polecam expects to see a good number of them coming along too, because most of our new features can be added as upgrades to an older rig.”

Polecam Systems has recently appointed new Master Distributors, Tecads for North, South and Central America, and Symbiosis for the UK, Europe and Africa. Representatives from these companies will be visiting the stand, as will other worldwide Polecam distributors.

Polecam Systems has recently signed an agreement with Panasonic to sell their range of medical cameras. Polecam is being used increasingly for medical training. In the operating theatre it is possible to get the Polecam boom in, up and over the surgeon’s work area to observe in fine HD detail the procedure in progress without intruding into the surgeons space. Steffan Hewitt and Stephen Rutherford, Alix Francis and Greg Carlisle from the UK team will be there on the stand to demonstrate the kit and answer all your questions, and it’s also a chance to try the latest rigs hands on before you buy.

Polecam’s attraction has always been a winning combination of portability, speed of rig/derig, adding production value without hassle, getting crane shots where no other crane could go, and getting right in to where the action is. Crane shots up a mountain! No problem. In a small location studio! No problem. On a small boat! No problem.

When configured as 7th Heaven, the full Polecam rig has an extended reach of 8m/26′ and when fitted with a small profile HD camera can get you right in to where the action is, giving a unique creative viewpoint to your productions.

There is a whole range of mini HD cameras, other specialized cameras, heads, accessories, recorders, not to mention 3D, underwater add-ons and Extreme SloMo too.

Polecam will change the way you shoot and the way you think about shooting.
