In 2011 FloMotion Media changed how live sport was covered, We integrated the segway handsfree transporter into live sport through FoxSports Australia on Rugby Union, Cricket and Rugby League with spectacular results. As a result we were nominated for Best Technical Innovation at theAstra Awards. Now it is a standard world wide.
With the Segway Handsfree Transporter, speeds of up to 20km/hr are achievable, tracking with flexibility and precision, a reality. From Live sports events, promos or TVCs, the Steadicam and Segway can get the shot in less time than other tracking/rail setups. It can be used in places where access for dollies, rickshaws and vehicles are restricted or not possible.
Consider the unique advantages of using the Segway and its handsfree transportation capabilities:
Works with handheld gimbals.
All terrain access including dirt, grass, tarmac etc. as well as uneven surfaces.
Capable of speeds of up to 20km/hr.
Step on/off capabilities (i.e. for access on stairs, cranes and narrow passages).
No set-up time required to reposition a shot.
Consistent tracking speeds in all applications.
Capable of operating in areas restricted to vehicles (i.e. malls, footbridges, pedestrian walkways etc.).
Track alongside vehicles, bicycles, motorbikes and skateboards etc.
