NAB Preview: Polecam Embraces 3D HD with Pan and Tilt Heads

This April, Polecam will highlight it 3D capabilities at the NAB Show in Las Vegas and will also provide its 3D-Narrow pan and tilt head as standard with all new systems, with the option of choosing the new 3D-Wide head.

Polecam’s optional 3D-Wide head allows the distance between cameras to be extended so that full 3D impact can be achieved even in long-shots. In addition, the Polecam 3D head attaches directly to all standard Polecam rigs.

“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,” says Polecam founder and managing director Steffan Hewitt. “From NAB 2010 onward, the standard pan and tilt head sold with Polecam systems will be capable of holding a 3D camera pair. 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 throughout the NAB Show at booth C7933 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center
