Skycam is a camera system, controlled through a remote system by automation. It can be suspended freely and is driven through the cable system. Skycam was invented by Garrett Brown, which was then owned by Winnercomm Inc. in the year 2004 and subsequently acquired by Outdoor Channel Holding Inc. in 2009. The camera weighs 30.86 lbs, just less than 14 kg and can travel at 29.08 mph (13 m/s). Till the mid of 1990s, Skycam was not widely used because of limitation in computer and servo motor technology.
