The SkyPodô In Use By The Miami-Dade Police Dept.
During the week of Nov. 19 through the 21st, thousands of protestors came to Miami to oppose the FTAA. (Free Trade Agreement of the Americas)
The Miami-Dade Police Department, Video Services Unit, used several Sony TRV-950's and a Sony VX-2000 to record the demonstration. Along with this video equipment, the they used several Studio 1 SkyPods and ProZoom controllers to provide video coverage of the demonstration and rioting. On this page you will see several photos of police videographers in action using the SkyPods.
The use of the SkyPods allowed officers a better vantage point by getting the camera high up over the crowds in order to have an unobstructed view of the protesters. The SkyPod also provide mobility and flexibility during the protest and allowed the offices to move about quickly and easily.
I would like to thank Rick Bravo for these photographs of the officers in action with the Skypods.
