NEWTON S2 stabilized remote head on Spidercam light & Field
Adding camera control and stabilization to Spidercam's flagship product lines for 3D cable cam systems
Spidercam GmbH is among the world´s biggest providers of cable cam services to live TV broadcast productions such as sports and concerts. The Austrian company started in 2000 and has since then built up a large fleet of 3D cable cam systems, servicing worldwide with additional offices in Germany, USA and Australia. Through 4 winches pulling cables, their dollies can fly around big areas and this camera movement has become popular on for example cricket and football. A few years ago Spidercam did not use 3-axis stabilization on their camera heads but since 2017 Newton Nordic is the proud supplier of NEWTON remote stabilized heads to Spidercam´s flagship product lines Spidercam Light & Field.
Field is the bigger dolly system, containing more battery power, and it can fly both faster and wider over football, rugby and cricket pitches. Spidercam Light on the other hand has a smaller and more lightweight dolly, intended for indoor events where a ceiling demand a minimal of cable sag. Spidercam Light was developed for the NEWTON head in recent years, but has already made a name for itself at for example the Beyoncé & Jay-Z OTR2 tour, X-factor and MTV Music Video Awards.
