HI-POD has unveiled its plan for the new line of products. The new and improved HI-POD will include not only the base, and hard travel case, but also a Sony mini-dv camera. All of this for the same $2995 price.
The Sony mini-dv camera has a 20 times optical lens, video out, firewire out, and LANC Control. The new units will extend to 15, 20, and 25 feet respectively.
In addition to the standard features of the HI-POD (Anti-glare monitor, battery, battery charger, LANC controller) the new HI-PODs will be lighter to move, faster to setup, and safer to operate.
Many of the gound-breaking benefits of the original HI-POD will be available on the new units. For instance, the HI-POD will still be extremely mobile. Easily detaching from the base, an operator will be able to remove the HI-POD from the base and walk the line of scrimmage to follow the game, or move from hashmark to hashmark in the endzone, to capture the best footage possible.
The new handle mechanism will greatly increase the speed of the HI-POD. Setup and take down will be even faster than before, increasing the operator's productivity.
And the new safety harness will help the operator focus on the composition of the shot and less on stability.
Each of the three units (15 ft, 20 ft, and 25 ft) will be upgradeable to the next taller unit for $500. This makes it easy for the user to obtain a unit and to grow with the unit in the future.
