Camera stabilization for filming action sequences from boats and moving platforms.
Did you know that a RENCO encoder is used in camera stabilization equipment found on many boats and moving platforms that film for television and movies, allowing filmmakers to get steady shots during high speed boat chases, for example? Chosen by Motion Picture Marine in California, the RENCO encoder has been part of their PERFECT HORIZON camera stabilization head for many years.
A System for Troubleshooting and Preventative Maintenance
At the Stora Enso paper mill in Hyltebruk, an unplanned production stoppage costs around $10,000 an hour. In order to avoid encoders causing such stoppages, Leine & Linde has developed a Heavy Duty sensor with an advanced diagnostic system, ADS™.
