The Quattro is a unique and innovative four-stage Pedestal with an exclusive range of benefits for today's camera operators. It is designed for use in video and film production to support pan and tilt heads, cameras and ancillary equipment. The Quattros provide an extensive height range capability and the ability to achieve low angle camera shots. The four-stage Quattro column has been specifically designed to maximize rigidity and minimize torsional twist utilizing a triangular structure, preventing any unwanted movement during operation. Incorporating a revolutionary mechanical and pneumatic design, the Quattro pedestal remains perfectly balanced throughout its four stages of elevation. The balancing system uses low pressure that has the additional advantages of improved safety and the ability to charge the Pedestal using a simple external hand pump.
