Cover more camera positions for live broadcast safely and quietly with our supherb mobile lifting platform. The Olympian II lifting platform allows you more coverage with different camera positions indoors and outdoors,
in all weathers.
The Olympian can carry and lift the largest of Broadcast TV cameras (including 3DTV cameras) and an operator, up to a height of 12.9 feet. The centre post can be raised and lowered silently during a shot (if desired),
and affords productions multiple camera positions over the course of a live event, forinstance. The hand rail can be adjusted to run all the way around the platform or just to cover one side (as per your requirements)
of the platform.
The tremendous lifting capacity of the hydraulic arm (4000 lbs on a first lift with full charge) means you can also use the Olympian as a mobile lighting platform (see Photo) for location work. Large lamps, electric ballast
and a technician, can all be lifted on the ample circular platform quickly and safely.
The Olympian II also works as a base for any of our Telescopic Crane arms or fixed arm cranes where you may need extra lifting height with a drive-away wheeled base or need an all weather crane system that works
well in the wet.
Our Olympians have been living up to their names recently having been used at the Olympic Stadium as well as numerous sporting competitions and live broadcast events (see photos).
