The latest system to join Lammo Ltd, we feel that the Towercam fills a gap in our remote systems.
Towercam is a remote controlled telescopic camera column which can be combined with any film or television remote head (360° pan). The column runs very smoothly and is almost silent, reaching ‘on-shot’ lens heights from approx 4.5ft to 14.5ft when underslung to 6.5-16.5ft. Towercam plus the remote head can be operated by one person. The system offers crane like movement without a crane.
Towercam is especially suitable for small sets where larger camera cranes can't be used. The Towercam plus remote head can be operated by only one person.
Towercam is a dynamic space saving alternative to conventional camera cranes and allows the camera to be placed in areas where traditional crane locations would not be considered. It is especially suitable for small sets & for on-stage positions. Towercam can also be tracked whilst being mounted to a dolly. This shot is perfect for front of stage concert events.
The small footprint and narrow profile of the Towercam makes it a very versatile tool for a variety of uses. The columns computer allows the operator defined soft stops at top and bottom ends of the move, thereby preventing hard or sudden stops.
Used in conjunction with one of our PeePod 500 heads, this is a fantastic piece of kit & would grace any production. It is becoming popular with Directors for sports such as Football, Boxing & Tennis as well as for music and news events.
Our Towercam comes with full HD monitoring & if required a custom made black-out waterproof hide is available.
Please see 'Hotheads' for the head options available.
