Cartoni has unveiled new PTZ camera support options. These were created, in part, to meet the continuing demand for remote video production.

Cartoni has three new solutions available.

With COVID-19 still effecting the film and TV industry across the globe, the need for remote video production and automated image gathering due to social distancing and reduced crew sizes has forced manufacturers to meet this demand.

Remote studio video production is now relying more and more on the use of PTZ cameras. While the latest generation of PTZ cameras can capture high-quality video, these cameras have traditionally lacked camera supports. This forced users to mount them on walls, ceilings, or use expensive camera supports meant for large cameras. To make things easier and more affordable, Cartoni has come up with a new range of camera supports that have been specifically designed for PTZ cameras.

So let’s have a look at the three new solutions.

Lightweight Tripod/Dolly
