Just watched the Miss USA pageant from NBC last night. John Perry kicked ass once again! Loved the 360 bikini butt shots ;) John did you use the new Pro arm Atlas on this one? Wireless or tethered?

I also enjoyed the..um..."operating" on this show.

John will have to confirm, but the movements made me think it was wireless.

Talked with John the other day. Yes, wireless. Yes, he used the Atlas arm. Freddy Frederick operated on the show as well.

Thanks guys....you've heard the saying "Good cameramen never go soft" which was especially true on this show ;) Bikinis are awesome! This was the first year the pageant budgeted for a Link wireless system (thank you to Aerial Video Systems [AVS] in Burbank) so we were able to spice it up a bit, and got permission from the producers to show more T&A. They provided wireless video transmit, wireless intercom, wireless prompter, and wireless returns. Freddy was the other steadi and he was tethered.

I have only used the Atlas arm on the Idol Finale, but on Miss USA I used the regular Titan Arm (is that the right name?). After using the Atlas arm as a demo I decided to buy one especially for the dance shows. I take delivery of mine in a few weeks. I think it's worth it just for the extra couple of inches of boom range.
