Ross Video Introduces New Ceiling-Mounted Camera Motion System

News Image
Ross Video has introduced a new ceiling-mounted camera motion system at NAB 2019.

The Furio SkyDolly expands the Furio family of camera robotics, incorporating the proven qualities of previous versions while also addressing the challenges specific to ceiling-mounted dolly systems.

Furio SkyDolly has been designed with safety as a priority – the fully captive dolly cannot be derailed and comes with safety tethers for the payload and head. Its sturdy three-wheel design, enlarged wheelbase (60% wider and 40% longer than other Furio solutions), and raised centre of mass ensure shake-free operation, even at high speeds, giving you rock solid stability for dramatic overhead moving shots. Custom cable management reduces drag and moves quietly, with minimal impact on overall footprint. SkyDolly also features a payload capacity that is high enough to support a full-size prompter, ensuring that SkyDolly can be used for much more than just beauty shots. 

Initially available with fixed columns ranging 12 to 48 inches, Furio SkyDolly is fully compatible with all Furio heads and can easily be added to existing Ross Robotics solutions under SmartShell or OverDrive control. Like all Furio systems, SkyDolly also provides accurate tracking data for virtual studio/augmented reality applications. An inverted lift mechanism will be made available later in 2019. 
 
Bruce Takasaki, Marketing Product Manager for Ross Camera Motion Systems, believes Furio SkyDolly offers greater flexibility to those working in the studio.

"We know that content producers love the dynamic and creative camera moves that Furio offers, but sometimes set design can make the use of robotic systems a challenge," he said. "Furio SkyDolly can help keep the studio floor space clean and uncluttered and can allow set designers to be more inventive. Combine industry-leading safety and dolly speed with the prompter-friendly payload capacity, and we know SkyDolly is going open up a whole new world of creative options for our customers."
