Product launch 2020

NEWTON C2 Controller

In October 2020 we start to ship a new remote controller for our NEWTON stabilized camera heads. With the NEWTON C2, we continue our mission to offer the best control feel in the TV industry and this controller is built upon the feedback from the best broadcast professionals in the world, our customers.

The NEWTON C2 brings the option of lens control through joystick with an endless rotary top and we have also improved our standard lens control with a sturdier and even smoother zoom rocker. Another new feature is detachable antennas for easier exchange and for the use of third-party antenna options. A RS232 serial port is also added for third party wireless data communication.

THE NEWTON S2

STABILIZED REMOTE HEAD

In 2018, the successor NEWTON S2 was launched with upgrades such as stronger motors, higher power and a more sophisticated slip ring.

The compact, rugged and user-oriented design of NEWTON S2 combined with leading stabilization technology turns it into a practical and versatile specialist camera tool. With discreet features, NEWTON S2 provides stabilized moving shots, from new angles, at live broadcast and is easily integrated with both cameras and broadcast facilities.
