The war against crime in South Africa has taken another positive step forward with a new sponsorship deal between vehicle tracking and recovery company, Netstar and SABC 2.
The Netstar Newscopter took to the air in July and, apart from news and traffic reports, the public will be kept informed about high risk areas for vehicle theft and hijack. In the Netstar Newscopter the pilot does the TV-reporting, assisted by a camera operator, who cuts between shots and manipulates the remote controlled external camera.
The camera operator uses a laptop-based digital editing package, which allows on-scene edits to be made and 'live recorded' visuals to be broadcast immediately. "We hope to be able to help the public to avoid high risk areas, become more aware of the current dangers and stand a better chance of getting their own back in the event of a vehicle theft or hi-jack," added Netstar's MD, John Edmeston.
