Camera Crane Stabilization

Car chases are just one example of fast action scenes now standard in blockbuster action movies. To give the audience the ultimate thrill, the camera needs to move with traffic which demands rugged, stable shooting.

With over 60 years of electromechanical stabilization experience, we have created a gyrostablized, remote controlled camera crane stabilization system that will get you where the action is and provide a steady shooting platform, even in the bumpiest environments. The stabilized camera crane includes a motor controller, two gyroscopes, a hand controller and traverse and elevation drives. Remotely controlled, the system can steady shots at speeds up to 120 km/h and a velocity range of 0.01 to 700°/sec.
