JitaCam 360° Jib In The Air

In 2009 Robert began working for JitaCam ™ the remote controlled "360° Jib In The Air" as one of the system remote head operators


The JitaCam is a new dynamic jib that brings the idea of a crane to new heights. By taking away the footprint of a large crane on the floor, the JitaCam offers a new level of creative expression to any production by placing the jib above the subject with the freedom of a 360° arm rotation.


In August of 2007, the "seed" of JitaCam was planted when its overhead jib system debuted hovering in sync with rappers who strutted across the MTV set of Celebrity Rap Superstar. The positive reaction of director, Paul Miller led JitaCam creators directly to the high profile 2007 Country Music Awards. From there the overhead jib system was catapulted across the country on various television programs, reality series, concerts and sporting events. Jitacam was born! In March of 2009, lead designer Paul Manecky teamed up with veteran operators John Pry and Chuck Goslin to form the corporation, JitaCam, The 360°”Jib In The Air”. Since then JitaCam soared to extreme heights at the 2009 summer & winter X-Games, HBO Boxing, and Showtime Mixed Martial Arts events.


Robert Hayton has been a JitaCam Operator since July of 2009. Robert teamed up with John Pry in 2009, 2010 for ESPN's Summer XGames inside Staples Center as well as UFC 114 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He also has worked with Paul Manecky for CBS MMA Strikeforce , ESPN Friday Night Fights and UFC 123 in Michigan.
