Case Study: Spidercam GmbH

Enabling to Live the Moment With Reliable Camera Performance

About Spidercam GmbH

Sports fans around the globe know and appreciate the spectacular camera shots produced in stadiums and arenas these days. The breath-taking bird's-eye view images are realized with so-called spidercams® – these are cameras that "fly" over the field or court on Kevlar wires. The company spidercam GmbH, with the same name, is the world leader in this area. Operating in different countries, the company has branches in Germany, Austria, Australia, and the United States. Most spidercam® systems used for sporting events and shows are rentals, and the company also takes care of logistics for the systems.

The Challenge

Reliable Camera Performance for sporting Events

Live events require operational excellence and attention to detail anytime. To ensure highest camera performance anytime during the sporting events, spidercam technicians and support teams can be reached via hotline around the clock. However, Remote Support and installation must be done under extreme time pressure and cannot allow any delay during a live event. With the former system, spidercam suffered from performance issues and was unhappy about the cost-inefficiency of the licensing model.


"When problems arise that our crews on location can't fix themselves, we can connect to the systems in question using AnyDesk. Our technicians can then work as if they were right there on the remote computer and can fine tune settings, for example. AnyDesk has shown us that it can rise to the challenge. Performance is noticeably better than our previous solution, and everything runs smoothly."

Herbert Neff, CEO
