    Belgium-based production technology provider, Flying Cam, will attempt to increase its activities in the region, by establishing an office in the Middle East.

    The announcement was made following the success of the company’s CABSAT display, which attracted interest from production companies throughout the MENA region.

    As the name suggests, Flying Cam manufactures and supplies flying camera technology to record difficult-to-shoot aerial footage.

    The company has two rental cameras devoted to use in the Middle East, which are currently housed in its Belgian headquarters.

    Flying Cam technology has already been used by regional production companies such as Silver Grey Picture and Sound in Saudi Arabia and Signature Productions in Lebanon. During CABSAT, the company also received enquiries from production houses conducting projects in Morocco, Tunisia, Yemen, and the UAE.

    “We will definitely be setting up an office in the region to house support staff and technical staff,” said Emmanuel Previnaire, president of Flying Cam.

    “It is easier to bring brand new technology to an area like this, rather than somewhere like Europe where there is established aerial coverage technology that people are sometimes reluctant to upgrade or replace,” he said.

    Previnaire added that Flying Cam technology would be perfect for providing in-depth aerial coverage of the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia.

    The company owns ten of the manually operated helicopter-like recording devices and has developed two prototype autopilot-enabled cameras which are intended for use in surveillance, broadcasting and military applications.
