WELCOME !

Since 1996, Hi Cam has been involved in the field of UAVs, operating a range of platforms, advising clients, and supplying video solutions.

UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are enjoying an explosion of interest and investment.
They range from toy planes with cameras, to multi-million dollar satellite-guided flying robots.



 TINY TECHNOLOGY

In 2001, Hi Cam released the world's first 4.8V CCD-based high-power micro video system designed specifically for aerial applications.

It was called the Micro 100, and was followed by the Pro 100. We drew on our years of experience with these products to develop the highly successful Pro X2 in 2005, which has now evolved into the new MV500, shown at right.

Hi Cam systems have been operating in 30 countries, operating on blimps, helicopters, planes, rockets, gliders, balloons, kites, live birds, and research UAVs around the world.

Note: This transmitter is not recommended if your remote control is 2.4GHz, due to insterference issues. Otherwise, it's a good choice, and compared to 5.8GHz transmitters, will give you more range and better penetration of light obstacles like leaves.

 QUEEN'S BATON

Hi Cam developed the two video systems installed in the Queen's Baton, shown at left.

At Buckingham Palace on 14 March 2005, in front of a giant screen to show live video from the baton, the Queen handed the baton to Elle Macpherson and Cathy Freeman, the first of thousands of runners to carry the baton around the world. Click to see photo.

It reached Melbourne on 15 March 2006 for the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.
Here it was handed to the Queen, with an estimated viewing audience of 1.5 billion people worldwide.
