Autopod Elevation Unit

Autopod is a continuation of the Polecam ethos of providing a "platform" which is a remotely operated programmable telescopic elevation unit for use with Rigs, Cranes, Remote heads, Cameras, Speakers and more....

The unit can be used as a standalone system on a stage, in a studio, behind a goal, conference venue, or remote location such as a golf course to provide an unobtrusive camera position - great for the spectators whilst not interferring with the artistes, players action, presenters or the sequence being shot.
Each elevation unit is supplied with universal cheese plate providing the ideal platform for your chosen object to be mounted to securely with machine screws to include 1/4", 3/8" and 6mm and 10mm Using these plates also enables the individual units to be stacked upon each other 1, 2, 3 or 4 units high to enable greater height to be achieved whilst maintaining a low profile.

Additionally "upstands" can be used to increase elevation, these are available in 250mm sections and can be stacked accordingly as required
