Polecam operator in Nottingham

Polecam is a lightweight, portable jib system which gives those large, expansive floating camera moves which add so much to a production. Whether it be music, sport, broadcast or corporate, Polecam will add the 'wow' factor.  With a maximum reach of 6 metres from its pivot point, and a remotely operated hothead, those 'big shots' are now available to everyone. 

Being made up of lightweight carbon fibre poles, it is much quicker to set up and transport than traditional jibs, giving the option for many more shots within a shoot day.  The carbon fibre poles are 1.2m long and can be configured anywhere between 2 and 5 lengths, and even with an elbow joint allowing an 'up and over' shot!

Our rig uses the 'long head', which can take a d-slr sized camera, the PXW-FS5 for 4K/HD/shallow depth of field or even the PMW-300 if required, although our standard rig is equipped with the BBC approved Panasonic HCK10 mini camera with 12x zoom.  Depending on quality levels required the output can be recorded onto the HMR10 recorder to SD card (max 24Mb/s 1080i) or for broadcast, using the HDSDI output onto the Samurai in Full HD at up to 220Mb/s in either Avid or ProRes codecs onto SSDs.

Although we are based in Nottingham, East Midlands, our Polecam is available for hire with operator pretty much anywhere.  For more information on how our Polecam can benefit your programme, please call!
