Special Motion System for Flying Cameras
The Robycam is a special motion system for cable-suspended 3-axis gyro-stabilised camera heads. Sophisticated control algorithms of Robycam provide a unique opportunity to bring the camera
literally to any point within the working area, while Robyhead R2 camera head fully controls camera view angles with endless 360° pan and active roll with autohorizon. A synergy of these features
allow Robycam to produce spectacular images, never attained before.
Together with the sophisticated remote control unit, that has access to the heads as well as to the cable system Robycam 3D provides spectacular images. Robycam is a perfect fit for large events indoors or outdoors. It uses four real time controlled automatic winches and a sophisticated motion control system that allows for smooth camera movements in 3D and very fast movements – up to 8 m/s in all axes. Action areas of
200 m x 200 m and more are possible.
RobyHead – is a family of camera heads for cameras of all different sizes, from jibs and cranes to micro- and studio-cameras. The heads are made of carbon-fibre and available in different models that impress with low weight, highest stability under the harshest production environments as well as the opportunity for movements in many direction. RobyHeads can be equipped with all standalone broadcast 2/3” box cameras.
Since its introduction into the market in 2008 the system gets a lot of attention around the world and has been used successfully in sports, concerts and other major events.

The suspension ropes of the dolly can be wired in a special “polyspast” mode. The mode allows to apply more force from the winches to the dolly and increases the maximal working height without altering the system's hardware.
The system has been proved to comply with DGUV 17/18 (former BGV-C1) German safety standard and conforms all other major national safety requirements.
Setting working zone borders and keeping the dolly within is an inherent feature of the software.

Robycam can be integrated with all major AR systems to provide accurate tracking data of camera position, orientation and lens parameters.
Robycam is a modular system which allows to use the same system both in 3D and 2D modes. In both modes videosignal and camera head controls are delivered to/from the dolly via a separate
fiber-optic cable, whose length is adjusted by a separate winch.
