Cineflex EliteNew Media Systems has partnered up with Aerial Filmworks to offer High Def Aerial Video using the Cineflex Elite, Cineflex Ultra, and Cineflex V14 aerial camera system. We can provide complete Cineflex systems with HD LCD director monitors, helicopter brackets and HD recording options. The Cineflex is the ultimate gyro-stabilized aerial platform for HD aerial filming, video production and transmission line or pipeline survey.
