Cartoni Launches Steering P70 Camera Pedestal

At NAB 2019, Cartoni will introduce the Steering P70 camera pedestal, the lowest priced crabbing pedestal that supports packages up to 165 pounds.

Cartoni’s Steering P70 pedestal has smooth performance and is the most competitively priced crabbing pedestal in its class, offering the highest up-to-date technology for the money.

“More and more broadcasters are looking for cost-effective ways to add value to their telecasts without compromising performance. The new Steering P70 Pedestal is a great solution, offering an incredible payload capacity and precise, smooth movement in a compact and portable design,” said Elisabetta Cartoni, president and CEO of Cartoni.

The Steering P70 is a single-stage steering system for studio and OB production, with a removable steering wheel for portability. It features a column design for stability and smooth, precise movements. The pedestal offers extensive “on-shot” movement capability with full crabbing for easy maneuverability.

Cartoni engineers upgraded the Steering P70 Pedestal with three sets of 4.9 inch dual-wheels cast in a special memory polyurethane that retains its shape and allows ultra-smooth steering in studio applications.

The pedestal can also be ordered with larger 6.2 inch diameter wheels for OB production allowing for greater ground clearance. All wheels are individually lockable and equipped with a cable guard which gently moves cables away during movement.

The air-filled column works with Nitrogen or clean compressed air that can be loaded with any compressor or a simple hand pump. A safety air pressure valve prevents excess pressure.
