At this year’s show, Cartoni will showcase its entire line of premium camera support products, including tripods, fluid heads, and pedestals used worldwide in broadcast, cinema, and live event production.
The entire Cartoni pneumatic pedestal range for studio and outdoor broadcast (OB) applications has been updated and improved, and will be released as a high-performance series, including the P20 HP, P40 HP, P70 HP, P70 HP Steering, and P90 HP.
The technical improvements feature a dual-stage column with a first manual height adjustment and a smooth second pneumatic elevation unit for height on-air adjustment. On the P90, both stages are pneumatic, and a new reduced minimum height has been achieved.
Furthermore, the new HP range offers increased smoothness of the pneumatic column with a special silicon coating on the roller tracks, assisting the perfect balance of the camera system. A newly developed sealing technology will ensure long-lasting pressurisation and castored double wheels will be supported by new stainless-steel precision bearings, improving travelling on different types of floors.
The pedestals will start shipping in September 2023, and are covered by Cartoni’s five-year warranty.
The Italian manufacturer will also launch in Amsterdam a new high-power fluid head, designed for precision OB applications with long focal length lenses. Additionally, for the first time at IBC, an all-new motorised elevation column for pan-tilt-zoom PTZ cameras will be unveiled.
According to Cartoni, the new fluid head Magnum HP with a payload of 130 kg is the ultimate response to high-precision OB shooting with long focal length lenses, offering powerful fluid performance, thanks to its newly developed silicon fluid. Cartoni’s advanced chemical research has also allowed a new molecular composition of the silicon fluid that improves damping performance range.View the entire range of Cartoni’s camera support products at booth 12.F31 at IBC 2023, which is taking place from 15 to 18 September at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.
