New lightweight,
compact head is available in Broadcast and Digital Cinematography versions.
Rome—Cartoni, a world leader in precision camera support, today announces the
release of MASTER 30 Broadcast and MASTER 30 Cine, the latest additions to its
innovative line of fluid heads. Designed respectively for broadcast production
and digital cinematography, the two new heads include many of the features of
the popular Cartoni MAXIMA fluid head in a unit that is lighter and more
compact. Cartoni will demonstrate MASTER 30 Broadcast and MASTER 30 Cine for
the first time at IBC 2016 (Stand 12.E30) 9-13 September in Amsterdam.
Both heads in the MASTER 30 Series feature Cartoni’s famed “wing”
counterbalance system, which delivers perfect response, even for payloads with
low centers of gravity (such as those with teleprompters) throughout the +/- 90 ° range. The head supports payloads up to 23kg (51lbs) at
200mm (8-inch) center of gravity, and heavier payloads up to 30kg (66lbs) and
40kg (88lbs) at 150 mm (6-inch) COG and 100mm (4-inc) COG, respectively.

“Camera operators will be thrilled with the smoothness and fluidity
of MASTER 30,” says Cartoni CEO Elisabetta Cartoni. “The head’s
unique feel is the result  of our patented ‘planetary’ drag mechanism.
It delivers perfectly smooth movement in pan and tilt, going from virtually
freewheeling to an extremely consistent, maximum drag, while also providing extraordinarily precise starts and stops.”

Other appealing features of MASTER 30 include a digital readout that
allows operators to check counterbalance and pan & tilt settings at a
glance, and an illuminated bubble level. For improved user friendliness, pan
& tilt brakes are conveniently placed on the left side of the head. The
camera latch has also been ergonomically designed. It can be activated with one
hand to disengage the new safety lock and free the camera plate.
MASTER 30 Broadcast comes equipped with dual telescopic pan bars. MASTER
30 Cine features a single telescopic pan bar and a short, 90° pan bar.
