At A Glance
Our BlackBird PTL Pedestals add robotic elevation and pan-and-tilt capabilities to your stationary cameras. All functions can be controlled remotely, including your camera controls — letting you create and perfectly repeat dynamic moving shots.
Our revolutionary BlackBird base provides a smooth, ultra-stable platform for both the 2-stage S2 and C2 Lifts, and the 3-stage SE Lift, with either our X350, a 600PT or VR-series head.
Adds smooth vertical movement to on-air shots, along with the flexibility to remotely vary the height of the camera, making it perfect for automated production environments.
Fills the Gap
Provides a cost-effective alternative to dolly and free-roaming systems, with greater flexibility and efficiency than a fully manual tripod.
BlackBird base provides a solid, stable foundation for on-air camera moves, while ensuring accurate and repeatable shot recalls.
Ultra-stable platform allows the system to be safely moved around the studio, even at maximum payload and full extension – without risk of injury or damage to equipment due to tipping.
Same spare electronics module can be used for SE Dolly, SkyDolly and BlackBird pedestal.
Powered by MotionDirector
The S2/SE models use MotionDirector for smooth, synchronized key-frame moves with the flexibility to make in-flight manual corrections from the joystick panel. Create repeatable signature shots by recording manual joystick movements over keyframed moves.
Unique outrigger feet, stability weights in the base, and adjustable cable guards integrated in casters make BlackBird pedestals virtually immune to tipping.
Foot-activated wheel locks (both on wheel axles and caster direction) securely lock the pedestal into position on the studio floor.
