UEFA EURO 2012: ABC Products' Cranes are in for the 4th Time

The remote head extends the movement capabilities during shooting

For the fourth time in a row the German brand ABC Products by Movie Tech will provide the cranes for the European Championship in Poland and Ukraine. Equipped with remote heads of the "Pelé" type, a total of ten "Crane 120" will be located in the coaching zone and behind the goals to catch the scenes for the thousands of viewers watching the games on their home television screen.

Over the years, the ABC Products cranes proved their performance not only in terms of safety and reliability in the UEFA and FIFA stadiums, they also met the superior technical requirements of the international television crews: a resilient system with accurate mechanisms allowing precise and smooth tilt and panning, perfect balancing and stability as well as quick and easy set up. In addition, the stable square section construction is lightweight and extremely stiff, making the cranes top performers in all shooting conditions.

The remote head extends the movement capabilities during shooting and the included one man control system allows the operator to follow the game and capture the scenes even when the game is really fast.
