Stabilized remote head
In live TV
The stabilized remote camera head for broadcast of world class events.
The NEWTON S1 stabilized head was first introduced in early 2016 and has since then become recognized as one of the top remote-controlled camera stabilizers in the TV broadcast industry. Acquired by companies such as NEP, Railcam and Spidercam GmbH, NEWTON is used in the most critical and demanding live broadcast conditions, where reliable, high performance is imperative. Due to compact features and ongoing development, NEWTON is now controlling moving TV cameras at the biggest live events around the world.

NEWTON S2 stabilized remote head is used on a variety of moving applications such as telescopic cranes, cable cams, high speed rails, tower cams, tracking cars, motorcycles and boats.
NEWTON´s ultra-compact design enables installations of moving cameras in front or overhead of audience, without obstructing the view of spectators nor other cameras. Get the live TV viewers closer to the action with the NEWTON stabilized camera control system.
NEWTON C2 Controller
The first NEWTON remote controller was introduced in 2015 and has ever since been praised as one of the best control panels for stabilized camera systems in live TV broadcast. The C2, that started to ship in October 2020 introduces 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. Together with our customers we strive to have the panel with the best control feel in the industry and our development is always guided by broadcast professionals spending long days on set.
The C2 remote controller is ideal for multi camera TV productions. Joystick for lens control makes it easy to adjust focus and zoom at the same time and this is crucial to get nice smooth shots. I have used the C2 on TV productions like MasterChef and Family Food Fight in Norway and soon I will bring it to Let’s Dance and The Voice as well. It was a pleasure guiding the development of this control panel and I am excited to now use it on music productions.

Operating NEWTON on telescopic cranes
One of the best control panels I’ve used! Love the feel of the joystick and quick adjustability in the onboard menus. Being able to disconnect and walk over to the NEWTON head and plug in with one cable (or wireless if I choose) to tune the head saves so much time. I have operated NEWTON a lot on for example Ninja Warrior and its controller is definitely my favorite!

NEWTON on set
We evaluated the NEWTON S2 Fiber prototype in live sports broadcast during the product development and we are now integrating the NEWTON S2 Fiber on our products line for 4K broadcast of soccer, motor sports, cricket etc. The capability of providing rock steady shots, even in difficult conditions, and the freedom in maneuvering the camera made NEWTON the right choice for our way forward.
