amera Corps’ Q-Ball remotely
controlled pan /tilt /zoom
equipment recently provided
dynamic coverage of the Boston
leg of the 2013 Red Bull Cliff Diving
“This is exactly the type of
broadcast the Q-Ball was designed
for,” said Camera Corps Managing
Director Laurie Frost.
“It enabled the Red Bull production
team to achieve shots that
would have been
if not impossible,
any other way.
“The production team
was able to make full
use of the platformmounted Q-Ball to
and follow shots
of each contestant
during the approach,
launch and descent.
Q-Ball captures the action at the Boston Leg
of the cliff diving event
“The Q-Ball provided
footage from the centre of the action
without requiring a camera team
to operate in a dangerous and
potentially distracting location.”
As one of the most physically
demanding sports, the Red Bull Cliff
Diving World Series invites the best
high divers in the world to launch
themselves from a platform eight
stories above the water.
When the event was held in
Boston, it drew more than 25,000
spectators who watched the action
from the only “urban cliff” diving
platform in the series.
A Q-Ball was mounted at the
extreme edge of the platform
that resided on the Institute of
Contemporary Art roof 90 feet above
