The Orbiter 500 3.0 ultraflat was designed for all critical camera positions such as the centre pitch camera at soccer. Between the coaches and close to the fourth referee space is limited and views have to be unrestricted. This is accomplished by the Orbiter 500 ultraflat, the camera seat with the lowest shot worldwide, allowing to place it almost everywhere without interferring with anybody working close to it.
At soccer it can be used at all camera positions close to the pitch. At tennis broadcasts it comes in handy if positioned close to the net and at athletics it is often used at the end of jump discipline areas
The Orbiter 500 ultraflat allows independent movement of camera and seat, on the same axis over 360° at an extremely low level, providing easy operation and allowing trouble-free panning due to its central cable feeding.
The most remarkable and patented feature of this system is that contrary to other cameraseat systems, the seat of the Orbiter is not directly connected to the camera column. Almost no shock motion is transmitted from the operator to the camera as the camera column is not loaded by the operator‘s weight. The unlinked rotation on the same axis also avoids unwanted movement of the camera when moving the seat.
During the soccer world cup 2006 in Germany the Orbiter 500 ultraflat was applied exclusively at all centre pitch positions in every stadium during all matches. Since 2007 this model must be used at all side line pitch cameras at the German Bundesliga.
The new Orbiter 500 superflat 3.0 comes with a sealed high precision bearing, providing smoothest possible, gentle and steady rotation combined with a steady friction allowing perfect panning coming close to the characteristics of fluid heads. Comprehensive testing proved high durability even under extreme conditions in terms of temperature and mechanical impact. Maintenance is reduced to almost zero.
The Orbiter's compact design, its effortless handling and its noiseless operation set new standards for mobile applications internationally.
