TEMECULA, Calif., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Outdoor Channel Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: OUTD) today announced that Tulsa-based SkyCam, LLC (SkyCam) and Los Angeles-based CableCam, LLC (CableCam) will open a shared 45,000 square foot facility in Fort Worth, Texas. The move, which is scheduled for this month, reflects the Company's ongoing commitment to maximizing efficiencies and enhancing the growth and innovation of mobile aerial camera systems. The Company has plans to maintain staff and functions in both Tulsa and Los Angeles for a period of time. Outdoor Channel Holdings, Inc. owns and operates SkyCam and CableCam.
The new facility will have a number of attractive characteristics, including ample office space for both SkyCam and CableCam employees, a climate controlled warehouse for indoor testing and storage, and adjacent land for outdoor system testing. Moreover, SkyCam and CableCam will be able to benefit from the facility's close proximity to the major media and sports market of Dallas-Fort Worth, in addition to accessibility to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, the third busiest airport in the world.
"By strategically combining space, talent and resources, we will align the business for R&D and technology sharing initiatives to support continued growth," said Nic Salomon, President of SkyCam and CableCam. "With our collective creativity and focus under one roof, we look forward to delivering the highest-quality engineering and operational results with the goal of reaching new levels of excellence in the way live sports and entertainment are covered."
The SkyCam and CableCam systems center around a sophisticated, computer-controlled cable suspension system that supports, stabilizes and allows for three dimensional movement of a camera to capture overhead video of major events. Putting the viewer right in the middle of an event, the use of aerial cameras has significantly changed the way sports and other entertainment programming are broadcasted both domestically and internationally by delivering angles and revealing perspectives that dramatically enhance the quality of coverage. SkyCam and CableCam's clients are among the biggest names in network and cable television.
David Gutzman with Dallas-based Retail Plazas represented the company in its search and negotiations for a new facility.
