I used it before and it's a nice addition especially in staircases with actors running around. As far as I know it's build by a guy called Braun ( no relation I think :)) here in Germany and you can rent it at his company M.A.T.

Yes, this is the MAT Towercam by Peter Braun.  The Towercam was sent to MAT for a complete tune up, cables replaced etc.  It has only been on 2 jobs since the tune up.
