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 flagship product 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.
