NAB 2022: Cartoni To Display New Slate of Camera Supports
As the only professional camera support manufacturer that still designs, engineers, and manufactures its camera supports in Europe, Cartoni (Booth C9222) has continued developing and shipping new products without delay. Major venues in the United States have adopted their camera supports, including stadiums in Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas.
Cartoni has announced the new P40 Pedestal. The P40 is a midrange pedestal that addresses the need between the lightweight P20 pedestal and the heavy-duty P90 pedestal.
The new P40 pedestal combines perfect balance and on-shot movement for OB & lightweight studio environment, with payloads up to 100 lbs. This rugged yet lightweight support features an extensive height range and is ideal for newsrooms, sports, or PTZ configurations.
PTZ Pro Solutions
Inspired by the rapid rise of PTZ cameras usage in studios, Cartoni has created a complete line-up of PTZ Solutions that allows the placement of PTZ cameras in a safe, multipurpose, and user-friendly way. The PTZ Solutions are the PTZ tripod, lightweight PTZ stand, and the revamped P20 Pedestal, which allows users to mount a teleprompter. In addition to this, Cartoni is offering a series of functional accessories such as the “T-Bar,” capable of carrying two or more PTZ cameras on the same Bar.

Available in three different systems, the Focus 8, Focus 10, and the Focus 12, the Red Lock System is fast, lightweight, and robust. What makes the Red Lock System unique is both its versatility and affordability. The Red Lock Tripod comes with two rings and allows camera operators to easily change the tripod system from 75mm to 100 mm for heavy-duty camera packages.
New accessories for Digital Cine Operators include the new Mitchell lock. The new Mitchell lock is compact, secure, and a single piece, which mounts directly to Cartoni flat base heads or other heads via its disc adapter.

OB Tripod Systems: Master 65 head and Sport 200 OB Tripod
For OB Operators, Cartoni is presenting the Master 65 and Sport 200 tripod system. The MASTER 65 is a heavy-duty head for broadcast cameras with larger zoom or box-type lenses. It features Cartoni’s patented Magnum counterbalance system and unique silicon fluid drag system, offering perfect balance and the preference for heavier drag with smooth starts and stops without backlash. The new drag system is essential for tight shots on long, zoomed lenses subject to subtle camera movements. At a payload capacity of 20 kg. (44lbs) to 70 kg (150 lbs), the largest fluid coupled with the Sport 200 Tripod, the state of the art of heavy-duty tripod, offers outstanding torsional rigidity and its innovative aluminum designed profile shaped to ensure maximum strength, holding up to 441 lbs load while weighing only 23 lbs. This combination of the Master 65 head with Sport 200 tripod legs has been used on some of sports’ biggest stages, with Emmy award-winning operator Deena Sheldon using it at the Kentucky Derby and more.
