Surgical Jib Arms
Shooting surgery shouldn’t even be attempted unless your video crew is using jib or boom arms, so that you can place the cameras and stabilize them high in the sky. You simply won’t get the shots otherwise. Plexus typically uses two jib arms for most cases. One is a remotely controlled jib with a Sony PMW-EX1 camera that captures the overhead shots, and the other jib is a manually operated jib that is controlled by a camera operator from a slightly less overhead position, enabling that camera to go low or maneuver around a surgeon’s head in a moment’s notice.
