Key Features

High Speed Capture

From a standstill to full high-speed motion and back to a complete stop in fractions of a second, the Bolt Cinebot captures the fastest action with absolute precision. Capable of horizontal and vertical movement speeds of up to 2 metres per second, and a 180-degrees of rotation in a 1 second, the Bolt can keep up with almost anything.

Bolt Highlights

  • High-speed robotic arm
  • Camera payload up to 20kg
  • Track speed in excess of 3.5m/sec
  • Arm reach 2m
  • Max Height 3.5m
  • Can be used as both camera rig or model mover
