Polecam VR at Reggae Sumfest 2017 in Montego Bay, Jamaica

Polecam Camera Crane filming Reggae Sumfest 2017 in Montego Bay, Jamaica

Production company 360 Designs in conjunction with DownSound Entertainment created a 360° live stream using 5 cameras from the largest Reggae festival in the world – and the feature camera was mounted on a Polecam.  

The miniEye360 camera mounted on a Polecam was positioned at the very front of the stage allowing unprecedented 360° views for the live broadcast. Operator Greg Salman manned the rig single-handedly for the duration of the 10 hour over-night concerts, two nights in a row.

This was the first 360° live concert produced with multiple cameras like a traditional '2D' broadcast.

"The Polecam was essential to getting us shots that felt like we were right on stage", says Alx Klive producer, "I can't imagine shooting a concert in a better way for 360°".

Sample video is still up on youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZsolXTdl3I

Using a Sony FS5 camera it was live on Facebook and RedBull TV. 

England's Blake Aldridge leaped to his first World Series victory since 2014 with an exceptional display of diving at the fourth stop of the 2017 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in Possum Kingdom Lake, USA, while Australian Rhiannan Iffland continued her dominance with another commanding performance to stretch her lead at the top of the overall standings and make it back to back wins in Texas.

The polecam could then easily move around or more close to the operation surface to show the specific part that was discussed. Because of the top shot position it was very easy also to move the head a bit when the shot was blocked by the surgeons heads.
