Cartoni unveils new supports for added capability and versatility in the use of PTZ cameras for studios, classrooms, and more
New supports were created in response to new demands for remote video production and automated image gathering
Rome, Italy 28/09/2020 – The effects of the global pandemic continue to impact the film and video industry, either halting production due to new infections or forcing talent to broadcast from their homes or with smaller crews. One of the consistent needs that have emerged is that of social distancing during video production and, by extension, the emerging need for remote video production and automated image gathering. These new needs have accelerated emerging trends in studio configurations and placed a greater emphasis on the use of PTZ cameras. While the latest generation of PTZ cameras can capture high-quality video production in studios, stadiums, lecture halls, churches, and other venues, these cameras have traditionally lacked camera supports, either being mounted on walls, ceilings, expensive camera supports meant for large cameras, custom attachments on truss or poles which made set up complicated. With 85 years of experience in camera support systems, Cartoni has designed new practical and affordable solutions to support these needs, allowing PTZ cameras to be quickly and safely installed and moved on every location.
Cartoni unveils three new configurations to support the growing need to implement PTZ cameras in studios and talent homes.
This essential solution pairs a lightweight Cartoni tripod equipped with a half-ball camera attachment to easily attach to PTZ cameras. The entire set-up rests on a lightweight dolly, allowing studios to transport and move the set-up quickly and easily to create multiple studio configurations. This set-up comes equipped with a mid-level spreader.

HEIGHT ADJUSTABLE PTZ STAND
Cartoni’s new PTZ stand is extremely lightweight and versatile. It features a telescopic three-stage stand complete with a PTZ ball joint, allowing easy mounting of a PTZ camera. This lightweight PTZ stand is also equipped with a quick-release sliding plate that allows users to attach and center a PTZ camera quickly.
The stand also comes with rubber feet, which can be used alone or can be installed on Cartoni’s lightweight dolly.
