At Helinet Aviation, we provide the latest aerial technology in the industry—whether it be equipment for aerial HD or film. As a full service operation, we also have experience in all installation, rigging, and operation of aerial camera systems.
- State-of-the-art high-definition gyro-stabilized aerial camera systems
- Ancillary equipment, including FAA-certified bracketry, monitors, air-to-ground radios, and fuel trucks
Recalibrating Versatility The SHOTOVER F1 is the latest in the new class of medium-sized gyro platforms. Delivering all of the leading performance and stability of the K1 system, the F1 is a substantially smaller system that is therefore lighter and has a quicker installation time. The F1 is perfect for productions that may not need every last lens and camera combination but still demand the best performance available.
The SHOTOVER K1 is the next evolution in aerial cinematography. A 6-axis gyro-stabilized platform delivers unparalleled stability along with a class-leading horizon in all operating environments.
The K1 has an open-architecture design allowing a virtually unlimited choice of digital camera and lens setups. All of this flexibility is comprised of carbon fiber construction throughout that ultimately means the ability to carry large payloads yet have a lightest-in-class weight
The SHOTOVER Hydra is the combination of our leading K1 stabilized platform and an advanced panoramic payload. Using a custom integration that synchronizes six Red Dragon 6K cinema cameras, the Hydra constructs frames that span an unprecedented 160 degrees field of view primarily for use in background plate photography. Blockbuster-quality images are recorded alongside platform metadata that includes GPS positioning as well as the heading and camera angles of each discreet frame. Background plates become a thing of freedom, allowing matching images for almost any foreground imagery imaginable.
The long-line system is designed to allow suspending the SHOTOVER K1 or F1 systems from a cable below the helicopter. This can allow for the camera to be put into places where a the helicopter might not fit or to avoid rotor downwash (i.e. down a narrow valley, low over water). Our custom system has cable lengths of 50 and 100 feet than can be combined as well. Compatible with the Hydra multi-camera array.
Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS)
Helinet is currently one of only a handful of sUAS operators that are legally exempted to work in the United States on commercial film productions. We operate our sUAS’s as if they were real aircraft with mandatory production crew safety briefings, intermittent traffic control as required, and all under our Motion Picture Movie Manual and associated FAA Plan of Activities.
