“Baseball is not a sport for television… yet for a half inning, with the backdrop of the deluge and the promise
of a pennant, San Francisco looked… like a movie come to the small screen. This is the trick – stirring slow motion adding drama even where none is needed… Fox’s high speed cameras paid off
with a striking tableau of conditions the game was never meant for, yet seemed almost designed for the moment.”

Inside the Octagon With FenceCam

Inertia Unlimited is most noted for its super-high-speed camera system, X-Mo Blue; but Inertia offers a wide range of specialty cameras, including the in-track Gophercam of NASCAR fame, Refcam, poker Holecard cam and many robotic cameras. For nearly twenty years our innovative technologies have been featured at major sporting events like the Super Bowl, the Olympics, the Daytona 500, the World Series and the British Open.

Our goal is provide the fun cameras, the astounding cameras, the cameras that show more, that reveal new aspects of a sport and get the viewer right in the action.  If you don’t see what you need on our website, call anyway. Just because a camera hasn’t been done, doesn’t mean it can’t be done. And don't assume the cost will break your budget, you might be pleasantly surprised. Along with cameras that astound, we offer free tech support 24/7 every day of the year.

 

X-Mo High Speed Camera System

X-Mo Blue is a streamlined, user friendly system created by Inertia Unlimited utilizing Vision Research's Phantom series cameras. The camera can simultaneously be used as a live camera and also provide real-time replays. It can be configured in handheld, hard and robotic configurations and be transmitted over fiber or RF.

 

POV Camera Systems

From gopher to poker, Inertia Unlimited provides innovative POV cameras. After all, we were one of the innovators and provided the hole card cameras at the 2003 World Series of Poker (WSOP) which by large measure started it all. The movie "Lucky You" starring Robert Duval, Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore recreated the scene from the 2003 WSOP and our staff even appeared in the movie, playing ourselves.

Gopher cam is a US patented highlight angle on NASCAR broadcasts and dirt cam starred in the MLB World Series as a 2mm high RF HD remote controlled camera in the field of play. No other camera available anywhere is allowed in those events.

Other cameras which have gained high visibility are NFL umpcam, NHL goaliecam, HBO Refcam, Olympic POV's, car racing POV's, and even Hotdog eating cam (one of our favorites).

 

 

Robotic Camera Systems

Our robotic cameras include small cameras suitable for a confined booth to larger robos used with full size broadcast cameras. Many of our robos are customized to suit the individual setup of each show, where they are able to fit certain housings, or are RF controlled, or over fiber, or right around the corner.
