Blackcam B60

Ariana Grande | Coachella

Event- & Studio Version

The B60 system combines Dolly, Tower Lift (telescope) and Remote Head. Like all Blackcam Robotics, the operation is passive and inaudible while active. Therefore, the system is very popular for classical concert recordings.

For the fully automated studio version with B60 dolly and tower, a special remote head with even higher payload was developed for studio cameras with teleprompter. The payload (camera & prompter) can be balanced without additional weights.

Let us know how you would like to use it, we create the system configuration that fits your needs.
