The POLECAM IPAD/TABLET MOUNT was created for a specific shoot whereby locating an iPad within the operator reach without compromising rig operation was critical. The system is adjustable and enables the operator to locate their iPad/tablet to any typical control position.
Polecam iPad mount is available for GBP195. Seen here with the iPad mini mounted in a Peli Vault (not included).


Need to shoot useable 4K footage on the move? The new PANASONIC HX-A500 wearable action camera gives 4k at 25fps plus 1920 x 1080 footage at 50fps and 848 x 480 at 200fps. It comes with all manner of accessories for mounting and has good low light qualities we found after testing at IBC.

Like other larger motorised gimbals, the ISEEI helps ensure that the footage produced is perfectly smooth and stable, remaining horizontally orientated at all times.

Francois Vaillant

In 2017 we saw the introduction of SMPTE 2110 and since then, the transition to IP has emerged as a priority for broadcasters looking to streamline their operations, decrease their footprint and effectively integrate with an industry in a rapid state of flux. A 2020 survey by Devoncroft found that almost 20% of broadcasters had already deployed SMPTE 2110, and over 25% were planning to do so. Then came the pandemic, precipitating the need for on-the-fly collaboration and accelerating the transition to remote, virtual and cloud production.
