Innovision Introduces World-Wide Distribution of the Swenson TerraScope

6/24/05, Los Angeles, California

Innovision Optics has begun world-wide distribution of the Swenson TerraScope, a camera transport device that makes tracking subjects like animals, toys, sports, and  other low-to-the-ground action easy, fast, and dynamic. 

Flying any type of lens a fraction of an inch off of the ground has always been a challenge.  However, the unencumbered agility and ease-of-use of the Swenson TerraScope allows operators to move a near zero-clearance camera lens quickly and more nimbly than ever before. 

In normal operation, the camera points down through the center of the TerraScope.  A snorkel lens travels through the sturdy cage that surrounds the camera, and when it "hits" bottom a 90-degree snorkel lens arrangement allows the camera to see back under itself and shoot between the front set of wheels. The resulting view nearly scrapes the floor.  It's like the camera is dancing on air - or zooming like a hockey puck.

A whole line of accessories will soon be available including boom axis, wheel options (treads, balloons, skids, ice skates, and skis), the Terra Tray, follow wheels (for an unweighted camera on uneven surfaces), bank trucks, and suspension.
