AGITO Systems Enhance Creativity At 2022 Academy Of Country Music Awards

For the 2022 Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards), director Glenn Weiss decided that four AGITO systems would be exactly what he needed for the live and on-demand Amazon Prime production.

The ACM Awards officially became the first major award show to switch from broadcast television to streaming-only, running a shorter two-hour production without commercials.

Given two days for setup and three days of rehearsal, each of the four stages had an AGITO assigned to it. Two AGITO with Trax drive ends were on a straight track – one of which had two ARRI heads, a third completely wireless AGITO Trax was on a custom-made curved track, and the fourth AGITO had a Sports drive end for the ability to free-roam. The lift for the cameras ranged from 4-7 feet.

In total, the AGITOs were equipped with three SHOTOVER G1 gyro-stabilized gimbals for Sony HDC-P50 4K/HD compact cameras and two ARRI SRH-360 stabilized remote heads for Sony HDC-4300 cameras.
