Electric Tracking Vehicle
The ETV(Electric Tracking Vehicle) is a wide wheel base, four wheel drive, all terrain car that can carry a wide range of cameras, operators and grip equipment (see Photos). As it is completely electric, it complies with all current safety requirements for indoor and outdoor arenas, stadiums and Film/TV studios. The Chapman UK ETV is an ideal tracking vehicle for urban environments such as city parks, shopping precincts or airports, wherever you need a safe, clean, whisper quiet mobile camera platform. The ETV can carry any of todays camera packages from conventional film & digital cameras to large 3D rigs all compatible with our Remote Heads, Jib Arms, Fluid Heads and Vibration Isolators.
Perform tracking shots in almost total silence, on or off road, with our bespoke electric tracking car, developed and customised in house at Chapman UK. It also happens to be our greenest camera tracking car, with an impressive range of 50 miles on one charge and zero emissions!
The Chapman ETV is a popular choice for productions who need tracking shots with live or sync-sound. See our demo videos (where the noise is from the vehicle filming the ETV) or if that isn't enough to convince you arrange a demonstration at our UK head office. We're more than happy to show people what we're up to and how our equipment can benefit your production, in ways you may not have thought of.
Live broadcast and events coverage, such as the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games (where the ETV provided tracking shots in the arena) can also benefit from the ETV's capacity for creating moving shots with little or no intruding sound.
