Responding to rapidly increasing demand for 3D HD video content, Polecam has released its 3D-Narrow pan and tilt head, which will be supplied as standard with all new systems, with the option of choosing the new 3D-Wide head.
“The 3D-Narrow pan and tilt head allows extremely realistic stereoscopic content to be produced from mini HD cameras positioned side by side on a Polecam jib,” stated Polecam founder and managing director Steffan Hewitt.
From NAB 2010, the standard pan and tilt head sold with Polecam systems will be capable of holding a 3D camera pair. The Polecam 3D-Narrow head attaches directly to all standard Polecam rigs. It is optimised for normal studio shooting and close-ups where it is desirable to match normal human eye spacing. A levelling plate with three fine-adjustment verniers allows each camera to be exactly matched in height and forward angle. Setup is quick and easy, conforming with Polecam’s strategy of ensuring high mobility and operational efficiency.
Polecam’s full production capabilities, including 3D HD capture and storage, will be demonstrated on at NAB.
