Polecam has recruited Terry Halliday to the role of engineering manager.

He will oversee the company’s production and research and development work and has been tasked with ramping up Polecam’s production of the new Canon C300-compatible long head.

For the last five years Halliday supervised the day-to-day manufacture of Autocam, Radamec and Vinten/Radamec robotic camera control solutions.

Polecam managing director Steffan Hewitt said: “Terry will be overseeing a small team which means that all our equipment gets the personal touch and is extremely well thought-through.

“We’re constantly striving to adapt and improve our existing products based on feedback from cameramen so Terry’s role will be vital.”
