Blackcam™ robotic railcam systems in a nutshell
Modular & customized
Blackcam™ automated camera systems are modular,
the B10, B20, B40 & B60 tracking systems are composed of:
Camera dolly, remote-head, operating tools,
curved or straight tracks, and the B60 features also a tall lift.
Remote-controlled camera tracking
Blackcam Systems are designed in order to create moving shots from places where no handheld camera could be placed, and where most crane and cable systems could not be operated. Smooth and elegant, our system offers new techniques to approach TV Shows, live concert recordings, music videos and movies while operating all common 4K DSLR cameras (B20), common box cameras (B40 & B60) and the latest mini B-cameras (B10).
Thanks to their small size the system can be integrated into almost every stage as well as installed in TV or Web Studios, concert halls and sport venues. Our robotic camera tracking systems can be controlled manually or setup to be fully automated. Tracks can be delivered straight, curved and at any length required, 360° tracks can be produced with the smallest diameter of one meter. The Blackcam moving camera systems are, of course, compatible with Virtual and Augmented Reality.
Blackcam’s tiny mover can be easily integrated into TV and Web studios to deliver fully automated moving shots, every day. For example, our B10 is in operation for the Berlin based RTL2 news studio and the HSE24 studio in Munich.
Blackcam started with live-concerts. The best Blackcam B20 use-case is the 360° tracks set-up around the drums. Drummers love it, directors love using the shots and the audience can enjoy the show without camera people or machinery on stage.
Blackcam B40 – the Emmy Award nominated NCAA railcam. Especially used for TV Shows like The Voice & World of Dance. Also very popular for sports events and used by clients like Olympic Broadcast Services, NHL, US Open, Fox Sports...
Our new B60 – designed for our clients who asked for a system with a telescopic lift. It combines all Blackcam renowned qualities with more load & capacities. Already used for HBO and MTV - this piece came to disrupt.

Clients about us
"I used the Blackcam system on Snowden because at very short notice I had to try to discover a way of creating vertical 'look down' travel shots across the ceiling of our hotel room set.
It was a late idea and it was impossible to get a conventional crane in through the set… so I had to resort to implementing mini cameras and therefore the Blackcam System came into play."
Anthony Dod Mantle
"We're very excited to make use of this new, dynamic camera angle for all of our productions at Rogers Place... It's a beautiful angle that greatly augments the hockey coverage offered to our fans.
The onsite commissioning and technical support offered by Blackcam was thorough, informative and professional. And finally, the price point for the performance is exceptional."
Manager of A/V productions for Rogers Place
"We’re honored anytime the broadcast/television production industry offers us recognition. Our utilization of the Blackcam B40 for basketball coverage is in many ways a first. Never before has a director been able to get a camera in motion along the court’s sideline, so close to the players. To facilitate that shot we built the track and dolly system under the parquet floor of the court!
Only the pan/tilt arm and the camera were visible to the audience and athletes. This reduced distractions while increased safety to the players. Blackcam is smaller, lighter and faster than its competition allowing us to use it closer to the action!"
