NEWTON S2 is a high performance, compact and versatile gyro-stabilised head that delivers shake-free, premium quality footage for highly dynamic live broadcast and film production.

NEWTON S was first introduced in late 2015 and has since then been used extensively in live broadcast around the world, for example at Eurovision Song Contest, with 300 million viewers. In mid 2018, the successor NEWTON S2 was launched and includes upgrades such as stronger motors, higher power and a more sophisticated slip ring.

Discreet. Stabilized. Proven. Practical. Cost-efficient

The compact, rugged and user-oriented design of NEWTON S2 combined with leading stabilization technology* turns it into a practical and versatile specialist camera tool. With discreet features, NEWTON S2 provides stabilized dolly shots, from new angles, at live broadcast and is easily integrated with both cameras and broadcast facilities.

NEWTON can be used and mounted on a variety of moving applications such as tracking vehicles, motorcycles, boats, 1-3D cablecams, high-speed rails, tower-cams and lightweight cranes – opening for new creative possibilities and utilization of lightweight, low profile camera systems for capturing highly dynamic, premium quality footage.

* NEWTON is based on Intuitive Aerials proprietary automatic control technology, motor design, sensor-fusion algoritms and dual core IMU enabling drift-free gyro-stabilisation and reliable, industry leading auto-horizon performance without use of GPS or ITAR sensors.

``We evaluated the fiber prototype in live sports broadcast during the product development and we are now integrating the NEWTON S2 Fiber on our flagship product line for 4K broadcast of soccer, motor sports, cricket etc. The capability of providing rock steady shots, even in difficult conditions, and the freedom in maneuvering the camera made NEWTON the right choice for our way forward.``
