Cartoni has announced a line of encoded fluid heads and enhancements to its Lifto 25 that it will showcase at NAB 2024.

The company has integrated position tracking into its fluid heads, jibs and Lambda 25 nodal head. With encoders placed directly on the rotation shaft, Cartoni supports ensure precise angular readings. Data is presented in a simple open protocol compatible with any image-composition software.

Cartoni’s encoded E-Heads not only assist special effects, visual effects and similar applications, but also provide precise tracking of remote cameras. Position metadata is accessible to any processor or can be channeled by the Cartoni VR Box, which features a specialized electronic interface compatible with virtual engines.

The Lifto 25 now offers enhanced PTZ narrative options with an additional vertical movement. To address professional studio work, Cartoni offers the Lifto 25 Controller, which manages up to five Lifto 25 units. It can also be remotely connected via the studio's ethernet grid to interface with most PTZ consoles.

In addition, Cartoni has enhanced its range of High-Precision Pedestals, introducing a manual elevation second stage to provide better height adjustment to the vertical stroke.
