SHOTOVER K1 HYDRA
Developed for the visual effects industry, the Hydra synchronizes six cinema cameras to enable motion picture productions to capture panoramic images of the highest dynamic range and quality. The system addresses the costly and time-consuming process of creating background plates used for digital compositing. By capturing 36K of images with a greater than 150-degree field of view, the Hydra allows aerial units to shoot panoramic backgrounds that can be seamlessly matched to foreground images by visual effects supervisors. These virtually distortion-free images are recorded alongside platform metadata that includes GPS positioning as well as the heading and camera angles of each discreet frame.
Working with the SHOTOVER Hydra, we’ve not only been able to shave days off our shooting schedule in Gabon, we’re able to deliver background plates of unprecedented quality in even the most demanding environments

SHOTOVER K1 HAMMERHEAD
Similar to the K1 Hydra, the K1 Hammerhead synchronizes 3 cameras together to capture extremely high resolution images for IMAX, visual effects/plates and survey applications. The system can incorporate 3 cameras in either horizontal or vertical orientation. Further increasing functionality, the Hammerhead can be suspended via a long line solution from 50 to 150 feet below a production’s camera helicopter. The system can also be mounted on cranes and camera cars.
