The HI-POD system is the most flexible videography tower in the world, and Hi-Pod Mobile is the fastest.
If you have an X17, X23 or X31, one transformation lets you create the 17 foot Mobile HI-POD. This is a much nimbler unit that can be moved while it is elevated to 17 feet. Nothing else can do this.
This Mobile unit can be used in a variety of ways. In the sports world, it naturally becomes a line of scrimmage camera. It allows you to follow the plays from the sidelines (or 17 ft above them). This means that you can reposition the unit every play and still have great altitude. You don’t have to worry about people walking in front of your shot or of players running into you because you are comfortably 5-10 yards behind the players and you are elevated above them as well.
That is during a game. That is the most restrictive situation. But what about practice? This is where this unit really shines. Now you can go on the field. Get directly behind the huddle, move to follow smaller groups. Whatever the coach wants to watch, it can be easily captured with the mobile HI-POD.
