Cable Cam

REEL FACTORY is the only owner operator of the 48V Dactyl Cam Pro cable cam system in New Zealand.  We saw a need for a point to point zip-line type cable cam system that was self powered and easy to setup and operate. Most professional cable cam systems require tremendous amount of work to setup on location and require heavy expensive equipment that can take a box truck to haul. Coupled with our in house Shotover U1 Gimbal this piece of equipment is buy far the best in its league in New Zealand. 


The system has been tried and tested being run on world stage live broadcast productions, used in commercials, feature films many sports events. Call us for a trail or more information!






48v power drive system capable of 100lb payloads and speeds up to 50kmph. With dual batteries, run time can exceed 8-10 hours and system health is consistently monitored from the Pulse controller. Users control how much torque is needed through gain tuning, drive wheel slip control, acceleration and overall top speed. With our mitchell mount and extended tray the 48v Dactylcam can carry nearly any head and camera package up to 100lbs.  




Users program and operate from the Pulse Controller which is a wireless ergonomic handset that controls power usage, digital end stops, acceleration, top speeds as well as a menu for customized user preferences. The digital readout communicates position on the line, speed, battery voltage, traction control and speed settings. Battery life is 8-10 hours and wireless RF frequencies are offered at 915mhz, 868mhz and 2.4ghz. We also offer custom break out modules for external radios and licensed band modems for long range options.   re about this item. What's it about and what makes it interesting?

Safety. The most important feature on any of our systems. The Dactylcam Pro has multiple safety redundancies allowing the sled to safely operate over crowds, stages and extensive set designs.  A captive safety bracket attaches using 3/8" bolts allowing a second safety line to be held on dual drive wheels. Digital Safety Stops selected by the user automatically stops the system which keeps the operators attention on the shot.  Optional in-line safety stops can be placed in the line which would kill power to the system if touched by the sled allowing more safety redundacy.  Our Pulse controller safely operates the sled and can shut down the system from a single button or will place system into standby if RF signal is lost.  




4 Dtaps on each side of the sled can either be powered from optional internal batteries or external gold mount or vmount batteries making accessory power incredibly easy to manage. Internal 24v batteries powers the dtaps at a consistant 14.8v as well as an option 3 pin XLR providing 24v power out as an option to power stabilized heads directly from the Dactylcam Pro.  




Regardless of what stabilized head you use, the 48v Dactylcam Pro is versatile enough to handle whatever you throw at it. Adapting to any shooting condition is important which is why the drive wheel is adjustable allowing users to adjust amount of tension needed on the wheel to adjust for speed, inclines, wet conditions, etc.   Active traction control is built into the software to reduce slipping on the wheel which increases the life of the line.   Automatic braking on the end stops can be adjusted for the right amount of feather and gain control at your fingertips to provide the torque needed for difficult shots.
