Cartoni stand out at BSC, Next stop Vegas for NAB 2022
When we caught up with Elisabetta Cartoni and her team at BSC, we were impressed with the vision and innovation that Cartoni continue to show and the genuine passion for finding solutions, for their valued customers. One such solution is the new Cartoni P40 Pedestal.
The P40 is a mid-range pedestal that fills the need between the lightweight P20 stand and the powerful P90 stand. The new P40 pedestal combines perfect balance and fast action for OB vans and smaller studios with payloads up to 45kg / 100lbs. This sturdy yet lightweight stand has a wide range of heights and is ideal for news, sports or PTZ setups.
Elisabetta told GBIN “Cartoni is proud to present the groundbreaking new P40 pedestal.” She continued “We have been inspired by the rapidly growing use of PTZ cameras in the studio, this why Cartoni has created a complete line of PTZ solutions to position PTZ cameras in a safe, versatile and easy-to-use way. The PTZ solution includes a PTZ tripod, a lightweight PTZ mount, and an upgraded P20 mount that allows users to mount a teleprompter. In addition to this, Cartoni is pleased to offer a range of functional accessories such as the “T-Bar” capable of carrying two or more PTZ cameras on the same pole. Flexible, fast and versatile, the Red Lock is a new tripod designed for professional photographers on the go.”
The Red Lock system offers three different systems: Focus 8, Focus 10 and Focus 12, fast, easy and reliable. What makes the Red Lock system unique is its versatility and convenience. The Red Lock tripod comes with two rings, allowing the operator to easily change the tripod system from 75mm to 100mm to fit heavy camera bodies. The Red Lock Focus Series offers operators a premium tripod at an affordable price!
New must-have accessories for seasoned digital camera operators include the new Mitchell lock. The new Mitchell locks are compact, secure, and one-piece, and mount directly to Cartoni flat heads or other heads using a disk adapter. Mitchell locks fit the dual rails of Steadicam quick release dovetails and standard film boards from ARRI/O’Connor/RED/Sony etc.
The UV-C LED BOXER is a small and lightweight portable cabinet powered by next-generation UV LEDs that kill germs, germs, germs and viruses like SARS and COVID-19 within 5 minutes. Less than half the size and weight of the original UV-C BOXER, the Cartoni has been engineered with HPRC in a robust fire and water resistant enclosure with the same UV-C germicidal technology, certified for disinfection. The effectiveness of the UV-C Boxer and UV-C LED Boxer has been confirmed by a series of independent laboratory tests conducted by the prestigious University of Siena in Italy and by the FDA-approved Texas Microchemical Laboratory.
For OB van operators, Cartoni is pleased to introduce the Master 65 and Sport 200 tripod system. The MASTER 65 is a robust head for high zoom broadcast cameras or box type lenses. It features Cartoni’s patented Magnum counterweight system and a unique silicone fluid drag system that provides perfect balance and preference for heavier drag with smooth, play-free starts and stops. The new drag system is indispensable for close-ups with long zoom lenses subject to light camera shake. With a load capacity of 20 kg. This combination of Master 65 head and Sport 200 tripod legs has been used on some of the biggest sports stages, and Emmy Award winning cameraman Dina Sheldon has used it in the Kentucky Derby and beyond!
