Gearhouse Broadcast has partnered with Spidercam to bring its new SC-Light solution to IBC2018. The suspended camera system designed to work in smaller venues like TV studios or indoor sports arenas will be in action throughout the show.

 A fully stabilised Newton remote-head enables SC-Light to produce stable pictures from any position, whether stationary or moving. The reduced size and weight of the main components used makes the system easier to transport and setup. It has a larger action radius than any crane or rail system, and the combination of strong winches and lightweight dolly allow it to get closer to the ceiling than any other suspended camera system on the market.

“IBC is the ideal place to present new technology, and in recent years, we’ve run popular live demos including real-time IP media processing at the show,” said Eamonn Dowdall, chief revenue officer at Gravity Media, the owner of Gearhouse Broadcast. “There’s a lot of excitement about the new SC-Light system and the benefits it can bring to productions within studios or indoor venues, so this will be a good chance for people to come and learn more about it. Through our relationship with Spidercam, we’re able to offer our customers greater access to its unique technology, expertise and support.”
