About NEWTON ON 1D cable cam

1-dimensional cable cam systems are popular for live broadcast of sports and stage performances but also for shooting film where it for example is less practical to use a drone. With cable cam systems such as DEFY Dactylcam operators can transport the camera several hundred meters and with for example a 14 x zoom lens on a NEWTON, this footage can cover a lot of ground.

The unlimited pan of NEWTON stabilized head is very convenient on 1D cable cam since the camera often travels above the action with footage on all sides. The motor/joint configuration of the NEWTON head enables 3-axis stabilization in all angles without gimbal lock, even during straight look down.

On a 1D cable cam system it is most common for all communication between operator and rig to be wireless and it is important to have it on a reliable frequency if among a crowd of people. NEWTON can be integrated with most broadcast ready wireless control links through serial data connection and power feed from the NEWTON batteries. Wireless video links are also easily integrated.

The DEFY Dactylcam with NEWTON only requires one operator, with hand controls for the camera package and foot pedals for the cable dolly. This setup enables steady and controlled movement in 50 km/h for over 1000 meters and enough battery power to last up to 10 hours.

cablecam on set

I will say that the NEWTON has allowed us to provide a superior product and to stay within reasonable rigging tensions, making our cable cam system a very safe installation on set. Furthermore, the NEWTON head and its controller have great integration with cameras and lenses both for cinema and broadcast purposes.  The robust motors in the head can handle our 20+ lb payload going 65+ mph when tracking motorcycles and the sensitivity of the NEWTON controller’s one of the best controllers I’ve had my hands on.
