Bij film- en tv-opnames staan vooral snelheid en flexibiliteit centraal. De aandrijftechnologie voor moderne cameratechniek dient dan ook aan speciale eisen te voldoen. De aandrijfsystemen van FAULHABER overtuigen op dit gebied door dynamische beweging en optimale prestaties, waarbij ze de kleinste afmetingen combineren met het hoogste rendement.
Modern electronic cameras are opening the door for totally new photographic possibilities, both for photos taken in situ and for post image processing. By combining the high resolution and rapid shot frequency that can be achieved nowadays with a "rotating turntable", so-called panorama shots can easily be compiled. The basis for this, along with a top-quality photographic device, is optimal camera or lens focusing over the swivel range. A compact camera with microdrive motor offers optimal "small-footprint" results in this field.
In the rugged environment of the ocean, making brilliant films is far from easy. To shoot the “OCEANS” documentary, French film company “Galatée Films” therefore required some advances to be made to existing camera technology. The challenge of creating the necessary camera stability to ensure shudder-free images could be shot from a permanently shaky surface was a particularly difficult task for the developers. A gyroscopic mounting platform with several DC-Micromotors proved to be the perfect solution.
Modern civilization cannot do without a working wastewater system. It is important that contaminated water makes its way safely to the sewage treatment plant. As many drainage systems and household pipe connections are now decades old, they often need to be repaired or replaced. Expensive repairs can be precisely planned and restricted to the affected areas by first conducting an underground video inspection. Microdrives facilitate complete mobility of the camera head of such inspection devices, ensuring optimal coverage of all sections of the drain and delivering a panoramic view to the camera operator. Compact dimensions are important for all components of the inspection system to ensure even narrow drains and thin pipes are properly checked.
Unknowingly, almost everyone has already seen them, at the latest they were featured as "important margin" during the Soccer World Championship broadcasts: Light construction cranes for movie and television filming. Thanks to their viewing height and maneuverability, in the case of soccer and other types of sports broadcasts, they are located behind the goal, or in other exposed locations, and allow brilliant images of the on-going events of the game. Such cranes for the guidance of a camera must be quickly assembled, easily controlled, and must also be able to reliably support even heavier cameras with a large (tele-) lens. So-called remote heads, remotely controlled camera supports at the tip of the crane, allow the precise alignment of the recording devices. In order to keep the camera’s load capacity at the long lever arm of the boom as large as possible, all components must be of a very light construction. In this regard, small EC motors ensure movement and compact high performance at low mass.
