Ross Video Announces Spidercam Acquisition

Ross Video has agreed to terms to acquire Austria-based Spidercam, the global supplier of broadcast cable camera solutions. Spidercam made its television debut in 2005 and is now the market leader in cutting-edge cable camera solutions used to create unique outdoor shots for sporting events, concerts, esports and TV shows around the globe.

Spidercam’s technology creates visuals that are simply spectacular, and we’re thrilled to integrate them into our production universe,” says David Ross, CEO of Ross Video. “We’re committed to continuing Spidercam’s excellent customer experience as a part of Ross while offering more capabilities to even more customers. On a personal level, I just love cable cameras, they’re such an awe-inspiring and dramatic technology.”

The Spidercam system is suspended on four cables with winches that navigate a camera dolly in 3D space utilising a stabilised head to provide HD or 4K video. System rentals include an accompanying technician, pilot and camera operator. The company also recently launched a fixed mini solution for smaller internal production environments.
