Broadcast Solutions to Showcase New Cable Camera System Robycam Compact

Flying in full view of attendees at the Broadcast Solutions’ booth is a new cable camera system called, Robycam Compact.

Robycam Compact is a smaller version of the Robycam 3D cable-suspended camera system. Same as its bigger brother, the camera can move freely through space in vertical and horizontal dimensions allowing to shoot spectacular images from all viewing angles.

Designed for TV studios and small and medium-sized sports venues,Robycam Compact is perfect for basketball and ice-hockey halls. The winches of the system may be easily placed in venues with limited space still providing enough pulling force to maximise the working height of the camera. The compact and lightweight dolly with a gyro-stabilised camera-head allow for the control of camera orientation and lens parameters. Robycam Compact is available both for fixed installations and in a mobile variant for multi-event applications.
