The e-Magnum is Cartoni flagship encoded fluid head designed for Sports and Studio work that requires Virtual Advertising or score graphics, supporting weights up to 130 kg (287 lbs)


Cartoni’s encoded heads, specifically designed for VR and AR applications, come with 4 Million Count/Revolution absolute encoders for both Pan and Tilt. No calibration is required.


While the e-Magnum is primarily intended for use with the Cartoni Virtual Box (sold separately), the position data collecting is highly versatile and can easily integrate into any system by directly connecting to the encoders via the Lemo connectors on the panel.


The Magnum incorporates a patented counterbalance system and Cartoni’s advanced “planetary” fluid damping modules.


The counterbalance system is perfectly suited for cameras with a high center of gravity weighing between 30 kg and 130 kg (66 lbs and 287 lbs). It ensures perfect balance throughout the entire 130Β° tilt angle, for cameras equipped with long boxed lenses, a viewfinder, or a large teleprompter.


The frictionless fluid damping modules deliver exceptional performance, offering a wide range of control from freewheeling to maximum drag, even in extreme temperatures.


Located on each side of the head, the continuously variable fluid control knobs are easily accessible and connected to a digital readout for pan, tilt, and balance. This enables operators to quickly set up shots, even in low-light conditions or when using a rain cover.


For effortless one-hand operation, effective control brakes for both pan and tilt modes are conveniently located on the right side of the control panel.

The Magnum seamlessly interfaces with any Mitchell flat tripod and is compatible with all existing pedestals featuring a 4-hole system.
