The Colibri-System was developed in 2011 as a lightweight Version to the CAMCAT® Standard and had its premiere at the famous Austrian “Neujahrs Konzert” of the Vienna Philharmonics.
The Camera Buggy produced absolutely no sound while moving through the so called “Golden Hall” during the Concert which was one of the requirements beside the minimal space and small forces the System needs to be set up.

Besides that the company is already known for Years for their spectacular Setups and beautiful Shots as also for their “know how” and innovations.
“At the Olympic Games 2012 in London CAMCAT-Systems was represented with 6 of their Systems and was able to set new standards for live Broadcast” said Brozek.
One of the maybe most remarkable CAMCAT® tracks there was realized at Eaton Dorney for the Rowing competitions where the camera buggy was flying on a 2400 meter long track in between special erected 90 meter high towers and was able to show the athletes from an all-new perspective.

Also this summer the Company was able to prove what they are able to do concerning Speed. At several Formula 1 races the CAMCAT® Highspeed reached speeds up to 150km/h and accelerated faster than the racing cars.
