See stunning footage captured with the Venice 2 in Rob Hardy’s film, Venezia , which will screen during the show.

Motion Impossible Demonstrating its range of engineering solutions for the Agito camera movement system, Motion Impossible is bound to have the crowd wowed! Broadcast bundles enable the high-precision and agile control of a tracked dolly with column-mounted camera heads. Magrax enables the Agito to follow a magnetic strip laid on a surface, underneath a carpet or embedded in a set. Operators lay the path, and the Agito

autonomously follows, while controlling the head and/or tower elevation. The Agito Column has been developed for heavier payloads, supporting up to 50kg. Agito two-axis heads are based on the Egripment 205 and 306 Remote Heads. The first is lightweight, providing smooth camera motion for payloads up to 10kg. The second is larger and more powerful, making for accurate movement for payloads up to 32kg.
