Worldwide, December 16, 2020 – Chroma-Q® is excited to announce the launch of a brand-new Pole Operated Pan & Tilt Yoke accessory for their Space Force Octo™ and Space Force onebytwo™ fixtures.

Over the past few months, Chroma-Q has seen a large increase in demand from their film and TV customers, specifically for their Space Force range of fixtures.
“The development and launch of this new accessory came about due to customer demand. We are delighted to be able to give our customers what they want and endeavour to respond to their needs to ensure our products tick all the boxes.” Commented Chroma-Q’s Global Brand Manager, Paul Pelletier.
In such a fast-paced industry, having the ability to make changes quickly and easily is essential. Thanks to the pole operation, operators will now be able to make adjustments whilst keeping both feet on the ground – removing the need for ladders on set not only keeps things tidier but also removes a potential safety hazard.

The new accessory is available now in North America from A.C. Lighting Inc.

But this is only new for ChromaQ. These pole adjustment mechanisms have been around for 50-80 years for TV / Film lights. Most theatre people never see them because they don't look for them. Get familiar with DeSisti (www.desisti.it), Mole-Richardson (www.mole.com), and other TV/Film lighting manufacturers. The grip equipment that goes with this for mounting lights and cameras to cars, houses, horses, airplanes, motorcycles, etc., are amazing 'tinker-toy' kits. American Grip (americangrip.com) is a great resource, too.

Posting in agreement. Even Strand's Ianaro Polaris & Bambino Fresnels, plus their Iris cylorama fixtures were readily available with factory installed pole operated yokes. The Polaris 2K Fresnels were available with pole operated 'Flood > Spot adjustments.
Toodleoo!

OR, they see them, and realize that most theatres' trim heights make pole-operated fixtures impractical.

How long is your pole?
How many poles would it take to work four shutter blades?

Touche! When we ordered the initial inventory for Hamilton's Theatre Aquarius, Strand supplied all of their 2K Bambino and 1K Polaris Fresnels with their standard pole operable Flood > Spot controls.
Not too useful with a 27' prosc', borders at ~24' to 30' and upstage back lights firing down from 38 to 40 feet.
Toodleoo!
