Using a Pocket Jib with a Broadcast camera

Hi there,

Just curious if you have had any customers/recommendations on using a Pocket Jib with a live environment connected to a Vision Mixer.

Not sure how we would cable the camera up and how this would work.

Thanks!

Hi! I have personally used both cranes and jibs in a live environment with great success. The biggest thing with the cable is to give yourself enough slack in the line for movement. You will want to make sure that you have plenty at the head near the camera so that you can get full pan/tilt range and then you simply run the cable down the body of the crane/jib attaching it with either our Kessler quick straps or gaff tape:
