Robycam Global expands into South Korea
A team of riggers and crew from South Korea recently spent 10 days in Moscow, at Movicom headquarters, getting trained and qualified on the Robycam equipment before the gear was shipped out to Dong Hwa. “Safety is of prime importance, but we also want to make sure we can provide all of our representatives with a head start in technical knowledge and experience,” said Pakhomov, “that’s why we bring our partners in to meet our team and train them properly on the equipment, before it goes out.” After an intensive training period where all aspects of the technical and even some creative aspects of using the equipment are covered, there is a test. The trainees are required to show competency in rigging and operating the Robycam system. Only then do the trainees get certified and registered into the Robycam global supervisor registry. Movicom’s commitment to safety insures that only trained, certified, and registered operators can use the Robycam system, which is fingerprint protected to lock out untrained operators. Movicom’s commitment to its partners doesn’t end there, Movicom provides veteran supervisors for the first few projects to advise the newly registered crew, just as a precaution that only the highest level of service is offered to their global clients. The Dong Hwa crew passed their Robycam tests with flying colors and is ready to take on the challenges of operating on their own.
Dong Hwa is excited to bring Movicom’s Compass AR technology along with the Robycam system to the Korean market. The Compass AR tracking technology allows simple and easy integration of the Robycam aerial cable camera system into all existing virtual graphics systems like Pixotope and the Unreal Graphics Engine, both of which Dong Hwa and Content Oceans have used on previous projects. The AR graphics capability is a key feature of the Robycam system and is a growing trend industry wide around the globe. Movicom continues to develop and improve the system to stay at the cutting edge, and help its partners compete globally in that sector. Korean broadcasters are in love with AR and so Dong Hwa believes this will be a key factor in the success of the Robycam system.
