Orbiter products strictly strive for top quality to achieve extreme longevity resulting in low total cost over an extremely long lifetime.

Camera Seats
In 2001 a prototype of the Orbiter superflat broadcast camera seat was designed as first model of a product family, meanwhile comprising of nine differnt types. In close cooperation with leading European outside broadcasting companies this new concept of a swivel seat was tested at outdoor soccer and athletics events. The tests proved high efficiency and performance of this new kind of low shooter. The Orbiter integrates a low profile swivel seat and a camera tripod satisfying the needs of both operators and technicians. Contrary to conventional systems all Orbiter models are based on the principle to pan the camera and the seat independently, unlinked but along the same axis. The Orbiter seats provide smooth and easy handling while technicians appreciate its high mobility and compact design allowing efficient handling and storage. The ergonomics of the Orbiter 500 superflat, Orbiter 270 superflat, and Orbiter 750 hybrid are unrivalled. The models Orbiter 500 ultraflat and Orbiter 270 ultraflat allow for extremely low shots under acceptable operating conditions and significantly reduce sight obstructions. The fixed models Orbiter 500 stadium and Orbiter 270 stadium impress by requiring an extremely small amount of space. Very low failure rates and easy maintenance are the results of high quality manufacturing. Our design philosophy sticks to a minimum quantity of components and always looks for options to simplify the design. This warrants the unmatched durability and longevity of our products. In 2013 we introduced the next generation, the Orbiter 3.0 running on rotators, based on a new type of sealed, high precision center bearing manufactured in house on our latest, state of the art CNC machining centers. The added value lies in gentle, very smooth and steady running characteristics combined with a steady friction all improving the operating conditions significantly same time reducing maintenance almost to zero. Comprehensive testing has been done and proved extreme durability in terms of mechanical impact even under extreme temperature conditions. This best-practice approach made in Germany offers comprehensive benefits to the user making the Orbiter your technical and economic system of choice. The German Bundesliga made the Orbiter 500 ultraflat mandatory for the standard camera position between the coaches at halfway line and for the standard positions at penalty area lines at soccer. As well Orbiter camera seats are frequently used at various major tennis broadcasts since many years. Since May 2016 we deliver the fourth generation of Orbiter camera seats, the Orbiter 4.0 generation - again with significantly enhanced quality and finish compared to its forerunner.

Tracking Systems

Since early 2014 Orbiter delivers to the aerospace industry. Operated by Ariane Space & CNES in Kourou/ French Guiana the Orbiter 500 spaceshooter 4.0 is in operation for the tracking of launches of the Ariane 5 ECA, Sojuz and Vega. With the Ariane project Orbiter made an important step into a new industry, enhancing the range of Orbiter models by a unique and cost efficient low speed tracking device which is more than just a camera seat.

Cable Drums
Since 2005 Orbiter designs and delivers cable reel systems optimised for fibre optics and conventional cables and hoses providing perfect protection of cables and connectors. After delivering more than 1000 units since 2005 our customers give us feedback, confirming reduced costs for replacements and maintenance of cable drums as well as drastically reduced costs for repairs and replacements of cables and connectors

We are pleased to announce the 500th unit of Orbiter low shooters delivered in July 2014. Since 2001 our systems work without major disorders, all objections could be solved on site.


We announce the 750th unit of  Orbiter fibre cable drums being delivered in April 2014. Since 2005 no major reclamations happened due to a very rugged and long lasting design.

We are proud to announce, that all low shooting pitch side cameras at the
UEFA U21 Championship 2013 in Israel
will be equipped with the Orbiter 500 superflat.
All broadcasts of this event are being broadcasted by Mizmor HD Productions/ Tel Aviv.

We are proud to announce, that all low shooting pitch side cameras at the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2013 USA will be equipped with the Orbiter 500 superflat + Orbiter 750 hybrid. A total of 4 units will be applied during all matches of the tournament. We provide this service in close cooperation with Manios Digital & Film/ North Hollywood.

We are proud to announce, that all low shooting pitch side cameras at the FIFA Soccer World Cup & Confereations Cup 2013 & 2014 in Brazil will be equipped with the Orbiter 500 superflat. A total of 6/15 operational & backup units will be applied during all matches of the final tournaments. These slightly used units are available from September 2013 + September 2014 being sold out at significantly reduced prices. Please allocate & order your used WC/ Confed Cup unit here.

Repeatedly Orbiter delivered all low shooting pitch side cameras at the EURO 2012 in Poland/ Ukraine. All center pitch positions as well as all 3D Positions were equipped with the Orbiter 500 superflat.
A total of 15 operational & backup units were be applied during all matches of the final tournament.

Starting with the soccer season 2012/ 2013 in the German Bundesliga the Orbiter 500 ultraflat becomes compulsory for all OB vans to be applied at all sideline pitch cameras in front of the grandstand. Since 2007/ 2008 this model proved to be most efficient to reduce sight obstructions for coaches and referees at the center pitch slow motion cameras. Now this standard has been expanded to the 16 meter positions in the production standard of the 1st + 2nd Bundesliga.

I am in the broadcast business for more than 20 years and the Orbiter is the most popular system for all sports broadcasters.

Orbiter goes Hollywood | Manios Digital & Film has boosted the promotion of the Orbiter system in the USA and Canada. Major sports broadcasters such as ESPN, NBC and Major League Soccer clubs like
LA Galaxy
and Houston Dynamo now take advantage of various Orbiter models.

tl_files/orbiter/editors/images/news/lorbeer_500.gifWe are happy to announce the 500th device of  Orbiter fibre cable drums being delivered in January 2012. Since 2005 no major reclamations happened. 

 

tl_files/orbiter/editors/images/news/lorbeer_300.gifWe are pleased to announce the 300th device of Orbiter low shooters being delivered in February 2012. Since 2001 our systems work without major disorders, all objections could be solved on site.

We use the two Orbiters almost every weekend. They are used at every sports event in the Aviva stadium in Dublin, i.ee the Six Nations and the Heineken Cup. They are also used in Croke Park for the GAA season.
We also find them very useful in smaller stadiums, for sideline or goaline cameras, as their low profile does not impede spectator eyeline to the pitch.
