For the first time, a single operator can control diverse camera movements -- including zoom, focus, and the telescoping of the jib arm -- through a customizable user interface. Controls and a viewing monitor mount easily on either side of the arm and can be positioned for optimal viewing and user convenience. What's more, Techno-Jib can also be fitted with a remote film head with conventional hand wheels.
Techno-Jib 24 extends from a minimum reach of 9 feet (2.7 meters) to a maximum of 24 feet (7.3 meters), enabling shots that could only be previously achieved with the use of a telescoping crane. The arm travels at speeds of up to 5 feet per second and a unique “Soft Stop” feature guarantees an automatic smooth stop every time. Units come standard with a Mitchell Mount adapter and can easily accommodate most remote heads under-slung or over-slung. Adjustable weights ensure jib arm balance with all popular remote head/camera combinations. A smaller version - the Techno-Jib 15, with a maximum reach of 16 feet (4.9 meters), is also available.
Techno-Jib telescoping jib arms are available for purchase or rental. For more information, go to www.telescopicjib.com.
