INOVATIV Carts Branches Out To New Markets

I had a great visit with INOVATIV Carts at NAB 2024. I wanted to see what the full deal is with the new Motorized Apollo cart they officially released. Many, including me, were surprised by the pricing at over $10,000. They explained the Motorized Apollo is not just for the film and video production market but also, and maybe even more so, for industrial and educational applications. Moving heavy equipment requires a person that is pretty strong, and one could get injured while pushing heavy gear around. Also, the hydraulic braking system will help prevent other potential injuries when pushing loads up ramps and other steep terrain.

This all makes a lot of sense, as our world of filmmaking and video production is very small, and the Motorized Apollo is needed in many more environments.

Another new market for INOVATIV is the military. They have designed carts specifically for them that are very heavy-duty with fewer parts to assemble.

It’s good to hear that INOVATIV is building its business to serve other markets as they do make an excellent product with many options for use by filmmakers and video production folks.

Key features

  • Dual 10 in. Motorized Wheels
  • Hydraulic Disc Brake System
  • Flat-Proof Tires
  • Weather-Resistant Connectors
  • Rechargeable Battery

The Motorized Apollo Workstation comes fully equipped with a throttle at the handle to power forwards and reverse movement, hydraulic brakes for precision control, top and bottom locking drawers, flat-proof tires, battery and power distribution plate (U.S.) for accessories.

The handle throttle assembly powers forward and reverse movement of the dual 10 in. rear wheels, for up to 15 hours or 40 miles of full throttle use. The power supply is integrated into the bottom shelf drawer and provides additional power distribution when charging to USB-A, USB-C and US Type B outlets.

The Hydraulic Brake System is ideal for maneuvering up or down ramps or hills with precision. This system is lever-actuated from the handle and applies control to the rear wheels for maximum braking power.

The Motorized Apollo is completely tool-less and it features top and bottom shelves that easily assemble without the use of tools. The Apollo has a fixed height of 40.5 in. providing a comfortable standing height work surface. The shelves feature hemmed edges for safety and boast a 56% increase in thickness compared to our lightweight workstations in order to support heavier payloads. Additionally, the bottom shelf features an internal Main-Frame System, greatly increasing the carts stability and overall payload capacity. The Motorized Apollo continues to meet tough demands with flat proof tires, and corrosion resistant stainless steel and aluminum construction throughout.

The upright tubes are secured using our Corner Mold Lock-System that doubles as a location to mount Apollo specific accessories directly into the carts upright posts, from the top deck. These four vertical posts are 14% thicker than our standard workstation posts and have been positioned at the corners of the cart.

The Top Shelf features four sides and a hinged front panel that quickly opens for comfortable keyboard access. Removable 3/8″-16 and 1/4″-20 Threaded Rail Plates supply mounting additional accessories.
Soft close combo-locking drawers padded with marine carpet are mounted beneath both the top and bottom shelf for safe storage of personal items.

The Apollo uses our Pack Latch System to easily connect the top and bottom shelves together when packed down. The Motorized Apollo is designed so that while the Motorized Wheel System along with the top and bottom shelf remains intact, the top shelf can still be packed down into a more compact configuration.

The INOVATIV Motorized Apollo Workstation retails for $12,495.00 USD.
