Wirecam basically acts like an aerial camera dolly or slider system allowing the camera to track or “slide” along a suspended cable with tracking up to 100 metres in length or over 300 feet. This means its great for productions like stage events and sports or also for creating unique camera shots and perspectives for almost any type of production.
Utilizing a wireless remote controller the operator can control the speed and direction that the Wirecam travels along the cable while the included wireless remote for the the Birdycam 2 controls camera pan and tilt during the shot.
The combination of dampers in the Wirecam system along with the 3 axis gimbals of the Birdycam 2 completely eliminate camera vibration providing ultra smooth and stable high quality images from your camera of choice, with up to 5.5 lbs of payload.
The Wirecam full set also includes a 0 latency HDMI wireless video transmission/reciever system so that video from your camera mounted on the Wirecam system can be monitored for control and/or directly integrated into your multi-cam live production switcher system.
Because the”wire” is basically a high tensile strength climbing rope (available in various lengths at outdoor stores - 50m included) the Wirecam system can be very quickly be deployed, and easily setup and suspended in minutes.
Wirecam offers unique benefits over competative UAV remote camera systems that you might want to use to capture similar shots, most prominently Wirecam provides improved saftey, as well as accuracy, as the system tracks an exact path as set by the suspended cable. As well, the system provides full repeatability, as Wirecam continues to track the exact same suspended cable path back and forth as many times as you like during the production, and also the system is much less obtrusive as it operates with much less noise and does not produce a wind wash, either of which could be disturbing to your subject or audience.
The Wirecam system is also very affordable when compared to UAV systems designed to hold and control similar payloads.
The Wirecam system can be powered by the included battery for short periods of operation or optionally you can use the integrated Vshoe mounting bracket to incorporate the use of V-mount batteries for longer run times.
