Polecam Progresses to Larger HQ
"We came to our present Sunbeam Road site nearly 10 years ago from one of the Cardington airship hangers," comments Polecam founder and Managing Director Steffan Hewitt. "Developing, building, testing, storing and demonstrating camera rigs takes a lot of space even when they are as compact as our systems. The new premises includes office space, meeting rooms, a staff recreation area with kitchen facilities, purpose-built engineering offices, a machine room, palletised bulk storage, secure storage, product assembly areas and plenty of space for logistical activities. We also have scope for future expansion. Polecam visitors will appreciate the off-street parking facilities which include room for about 30 vehicles."
From Monday 6 June, Polecam's new address will be:
12 Wolseley Road, Woburn Road Industrial Estate, Kempston, Bedfordshire MK42 7TN, GB
Telephone, fax, email and web details remain unchanged.
Polecam provides complete HD/SD broadcast production solutions for a wide range of applications, based on the company's world-leading truly-portable single-operator jib arm and miniature HD and SD camera systems. Polecam delivers the freedom to place a long-reach jib (8 metres or 26 feet) anywhere a cameraman can go, eliminating the restrictions associated with heavy multi-operator cranes.Combined with an ultra-compact camera head and choice of recorders, Polecam jibs permit new and unique angles that would be difficult to achieve any other way. Polecam rigs operate from a standard tripod and dolly or from the Polecam body harness, enabling smooth shots in the studio or on location. Rig and de-rig are fast and easy (10 minutes), requiring no tools. Polecam systems can operate underwater with the FishFace fully submersible pan-and-tilt head.Polecam stocks a wide range of lenses, recorders, power options, remote control and multiplex equipment. Polecam also offers the simplest 3D production system on the market.
