Pro-Cam Rentals, a supplier of telescopic camera cranes and remote systems, has launched a new aerial division to supply the broadcast and motion picture industry with the recently released SHOTOVER U1 unmanned aircraft system (UAS).
The SHOTOVER U1 accommodates cinema-quality cameras and lenses, including the 6K RED Weapon, ARRI Alexa Mini, Phantom Flex4K and Sony F55 cameras and the Canon 17-120mm, Fujinon 85-300 and Optimo 28-76 lenses. This flexibility allows operators to carry the right payload for whatever the mission requires, explains SHOTOVER. Buyers can choose between the U1, which includes both the multi-rotor drone and gimbal, and the U1g, which is the gimbal without the aerial component.
“The response we have received for the U1 has been tremendous, and we are pleased to count Pro-Cam as one our earliest adopters,” says Alex Giuffrida, president of SHOTOVER. “Pro-Cam shares the SHOTOVER vision of helping motion picture and television productions push the limits of their aerial and stabilized shots, and we look forward to supporting them in their efforts on assignments around the world.”
Brian Breithaupt, president of Pro-Cam Rentals, adds, “We are very excited to have this opportunity to represent the SHOTOVER U1 UAS as our new aerial division’s flagship system.”
