EyeFlyer from ACS is a helium filled sponsor branded aerostat often referred to as a ‘blimp’ that is tethered to a ground station trailer on or near the location of the event.
As a camera platform, it offers a unique aerial view for live broadcast whilst at the same time, delivering an exceptional branding opportunity to the venue below. EyeFlyer is developed in house and is capable of flying up to an altitude of 1000ft (330m). The aerostat itself is 19m in length when inflated and can be internally lit using cutting edge LED technology for night time use. It is configured to carry a HD gyro stabilised camera mount (HD Cineflex V14) which is controlled from the ground and can be fitted with an RF or Fibre link for video transmission allowing seamless integration into the outside broadcast environment.
All aspects of EyeFlyer are designed for convenient and reliable operation with a small crew of experienced ACS personnel able to launch the system from an operating space of 22m in radius. Eyeflyer can be branded and therefore partially or fully funded by an event or associate sponsor offering them un-paralleled exposure opportunities both to the spectators on the ground and captive live TV viewers at home.
