Camera System
: FlyCam

The FlyCam is a closed loop, stabilized tracking camera system. The camera system is driven by a motor/pulley combination. The drive motor and video receiver RF or Fiber are mounted at one end of the run. Video is installed at this end for ease of setup and operation. At the opposite end of the run is a guiding relay pulley. The camera and its functions are powered by Lithium Ion batteries, while the motor that drives the FlyCam requires 208 Three Phase 30 Amp power.

RF - The data commands that control pan, tilt, and paint functions are sent to the camera via RF link. In this configuration, we are able to reach speeds of 100 mph and to date have reached a distance of 3827 ft.

Fiber Optic - FlyCam is also capable of transmitting via specially designed fiber optic cable. In this configuration, we are able to reach speeds of 55mph and limited to a distance of 1000 ft.

Mounting the pulley and motor/receiver can take place on pop-up towers, truss (supported via guy wires) and/or existing structures on site (eg. Catwalks, I-beams, Ski Lift Tower, Cranes, Concrete Columns).
