Actioncam Uses Fujinon Lens for HD Aerial-Camera System

Actioncam used an HD aerial-camera system built around a Panasonic AK-HC1500 compact HD camera with a Fujinon HA13X4.5BERD wide-angle lens during the 2009 NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The system made its network debut during the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four in April.

Two operators control the Actioncam system. The pilot uses joysticks to move the camera in space using a system of four cables, and a fifth cable secures the camera in the event that a maneuvering cable snaps. The camera operator adjusts the pan and tilt functions of the camera and uses Fujinon’s DigiPower technology to zoom in and out and keep the shot in focus.
