SHOTOVER Brings Broadcast and Motion Picture Industry’s Most Versatile Aerial
Camera System, the SHOTOVER F1, to IBC 2014

Names HD-Skycam First European Authorized Service Provider

AMSTERDAM (September 11, 2014) – SHOTOVER, the maker of high performance
stabilization platforms for the motion picture and broadcast industries, announced today its
participation at IBC 2014 where it will be exhibiting its groundbreaking SHOTOVER F1 aerial
camera system. The company has also named Germany’s HD-Skycam as Europe’s first
authorized service provider (ASP) for SHOTOVER systems. HD-Skycam joins aviation reseller,
Hildemann + Partners as one of SHOTOVER’s official representatives in the European market.

SHOTOVER has quickly become Hollywood’s go-to system for high performance aerial
cinematography with credits including Transformers 4, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Robocop
and upcoming films such as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and 2, Jurassic World,
Fast & Furious 7 and Monster Trucks. SHOTOVER’s 6-axis gyro stabilization and modular
design provides unparalleled versatility, accommodating cameras such as the Red Epic and
Dragon, Arri Alexa (all models), Phantom Flex4K, Canon C500, Sony F55 and F65 along with a
broad range of lenses. In addition to the SHOTOVER F1, the company offers the flagship K1,
which offers enhanced functionality, including 3D shooting and the ability to utilize additional
lens and camera configurations.

SHOTOVER selected HD-Skycam as its first ASP based upon the company’s excellence in
providing aviation solutions to the broadcast and motion picture industries, its technical
capabilities and its strong service record across the entire European market. Founded in 2008,
HD-Skycam is headquartered in Wörrstadt, Germany and specializes in helicopter, auto, boat
and motorcycle-based cinematography. To earn the ASP designation, the HD-Skycam team has
undergone formal training at SHOTOVER’s New Zealand facility and HD-Skycam’s technical
facilities and staff have been evaluated and certified by SHOTOVER.

“We are pleased to name HD-Skycam as our first ASP for the European market,” said
SHOTOVER president, Alan Purwin. “Along with European reseller Hildemann + Partners,
which is our exclusive sales partner in the region, HD-Skycam is equipped to provide European
filmmakers and producers with timely and expert service for all SHOTOVER products.”

The SHOTOVER F1 and SHOTOVER K1 are the the only motion picture grade camera systems
with no ITAR restrictions and no EAR licensing requirements allowing them to be shipped
anywhere in the world without U.S. State Department approval. Light enough to be transported
as excess baggage by a single person, both systems also feature unshakeable stability even at
full zoom, lookdown capability and multiple mounting options for use on helicopters, ground
vehicles and watercraft. SHOTOVER systems are also the motion picture industry’s first aerial
cinematography solutions that can be purchased outright, versus being available by rental only.

“SHOTOVER’s aerial camera systems offer producers and aerial cinematographers an
unprecedented level of creative freedom and convenience in shooting all manner of broadcast
and motion picture projects,” said Christian Wieg of HD-Skycam. “We look forward to working
with the creative community across Europe to support their SHOTOVER systems.”

SHOTOVER is a developer of high performance aerial camera systems for the motion picture
and broadcast industries. The company’s line of gyro-stabilized camera platforms offer aerial
cinematographers an unprecedented level of stability, control and versatility in a compact
package easily configured for 2D, 3D and Ultra HD shooting with the world’s most advanced
cameras and lenses. Developed in partnership with the motion picture industry’s top aerial
cinematographers, SHOTOVER systems are fully upgradeable, allowing operators to utilize new
professional cameras, lenses and accessories as they come to market.
