The Supercrane60 is a camera jib with 18′ total arm length and 15.4′ maximum lens height. It offers complete remote control of lens height and pan-tilt head and is designed for use with ENG camcorders with a Canon or Fujinon lens and LANC-enabled Canon/Sony (H)DV or Panasonic DV, HD handheld camcorders. The jib’s main components are the Jib arm, Pan-Tilt Remote Head, Controllers (control box and remote control bars for head and camera), Tripod and Dolly. The complete jib set fits into two hard cases (one larger roller case and a smaller suitcase).
The jib comes with a slip ring for remote head pan movement. The HD signal can pass through the slip ring, which means the remote head can output the HD signal.

For Sony and Canon DV/HDV cameras, it offers functions such as of control zoom/focus, power on/off, Fader, back light on/off and start/stop recording.
