Camera Motion

Visual act supports all types of rigging for camera motion including

  • 2d and 3d wire cam solutions with any number of lines
  • Tracks for both hanging and standing dollies, complete with cable systems

The camera dolly can be suspended from double lines to increase stability.  This in combination with a quality gyro head such as the Libra makes for smooth motion at any speed.

The Visual act winches handle from 100 to 250 kg so that any TV or film camera can be used.  Zero fleet systems allow the winches to be installed almost anywhere.  Strokes of several hundred meters are possible.
