News Image
With over 40 years of aerial filming expertise and 18 aircraft based in the United Kingdom and Ireland, PDG Helicopters have chosen the SHOTOVER F1 as its flagship system to provide unmatched performance and stability to its clients.

PDG Helicopters will offer the F1 with dedicated payloads for live HD and 4K broadcasting, and high-end cinema production.

"The SHOTOVER F1 delivers outstanding performance with unsurpassed flexibility in accepting so many camera and lens combinations. For years our clients have asked if they could use their cameras and lenses in our gimbals, and finally, the answer is yes! We're thrilled to be able to offer this incredible system," said Pete Jones, Head of Filming for PDG Helicopters.

Relied upon by production companies and broadcasters across six continents, SHOTOVER systems are backed by world-class, 24/7 service and support, allowing customers to access technical assistance any time of the day or night.

In addition to aircraft, the F1 can easily be mounted on ground vehicles and watercraft, delivering unparalleled images during high-speed shooting.

The addition of the F1 will surely add to the already extensive list of credits from PDG Helicopters, including the Commonwealth Games 2014, Giro D'Italia, Hebrides – Islands On The Edge, Scotland's Wild Heart, IKEA, McDonalds, A Lonely Place to Die and The Dark Knight Rises.
