T3 Motion, a producer of clean technology, has rolled out T3-MT and T-41 vehicle systems, designed to support and assist camera crews during the film production process.
Both products will be unveiled at the National Association of Broadcasters NAB Show in Las Vegas on April 16 and will be marketed to the video production market.
“This launch into the film production industry perfectly exemplifies the unlimited application possibilities for our T3 Motion street-legal small vehicle platform,” stated Ki Nam, T3 Motion chief technology officer.
“By leveraging our existing technology platforms we will continue to capitalize upon niche markets across the board and to amplify our brand in the professional market space.”[ Also Read: Will Cybergeddon Change the Film Distribution Model? ]
According to the company, the inspiration for the vehicle came from the film and video production industry itself. T3 Motion innovators started asking questions of industry experts about portable camera uses, applications, and issues and discovered that current cameras are cumbersome to the point of limiting their effectiveness.
The T3-MT and T-41 technologies assist Steadicam, Glidecam and other camera system operators to ride comfortably and safely with the camera attached to the vehicle itself rather than the operator, allowing for flawless content production and decreasing operator fatigue.[ Also Read: Digital Motion Picture Center at Sony Pictures Studios ]
The T-41 eliminates the need for laying a track while filming. Additionally, the new platform will feature a seven-inch high-definition monitor with an anti-glare screen that will allow the camera operator to view the images while filming.
Headquartered in Orange County, California, T3 Motion, Inc. designs, markets and manufactures the T3 Series, an electric stand up vehicle.
