The TDT remote crane system from Egripment is a new concept for a lightweight
remote camera crane and remote head combined as a single product.
Portions of the remote head are built into the front section of the arm, and the
controls at the back of the crane are built as a part of the weight bucket.
Egripment maintains that there is no other crane system like this available on
the market and stresses that the TDT system is a “different’ and completely “new’
design offered at a very low price, but with high quality.
The TDT crane is a modular system with three arm sections of 1.5m long. This
gives the user the ability to transport the complete arm in a very small vehicle.
TDT remote head technology is a combination of the scanner head and the
SuperShot head. The two motor sections (pan and tilt) of the head can be
adjusted for completely nodal use. There are no slip rings available but both
motor units have cleverly placed holes to guide the cabling to the camera.
The SuperShot is the latest Egripment remote head to be added to the line-up of
the HotHead, HotShot, MiniShot, MicroShot and Scanner Elite.
