-- Company's K1 Gyro-Stabilized, Aerial Camera System Racks Up Major Credits as Motion Picture Industry's Most Capable Aerial Cinematography Platform

LOS ANGELES, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SHOTOVER, the maker of high performance stabilization platforms for the motion picture and broadcast industries, announced major new credits today with the selection of its K1 gyro-stabilized camera system for aerial cinematography duties on The Hangover Part III, X-Men: Days of Future Past, RoboCop and Transformers 4.  Launched in 2012, the K1 is the world's first integrated platform for capturing aerial footage in Ultra High-Definition and is easily configured for 2D or 3D shooting with cameras including the Red Epic, Arri Alexa (all models), Phantom Flex4K, Canon C500, Sony F55 and F65 as well as a broad range of lenses.

Light enough to be transported as excess baggage by a single person, the K1 can ship around the world with no export restrictions and its modular design allows operators to quickly switch between multiple cameras and lenses depending on shot requirements.  Other standout capabilities include unshakeable stability even at full zoom on an Angenieux Optimo 24-290 and a variety of mounting options for use across helicopters, ground vehicles, watercraft and almost anything that moves.

"The market response to the K1 from both cinematographers and from aviation production companies has been huge," said Alan Purwin, president of SHOTOVER and of parent company Helinet Aviation.  "In the six months since launching it to the Hollywood community, the K1 has already been utilized for dozens of motion picture, broadcast and commercial productions throughout the world.  We are pleased to announce its role as the aerial cinematography platform for this year's The Hangover Part III and the 2014 releases X-Men: Days of Future Past, RoboCop and Transformers 4."

The modular design of the K1 makes it fully upgradeable, allowing operators to utilize new professional cameras, lenses and accessories as they come to market.  Portable and fast rigging, the system brings a new level of convenience and agility to aerial filming, enabling cinematographers to capture motion picture quality images more quickly and efficiently than possible with existing legacy systems.  The K1 is also the motion picture industry's first aerial cinematography solution that can be purchased outright, versus being available by rental only. The system is designed and manufactured in New Zealand.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
