UK-based video, AV and technical production provider Central Presentations Ltd (CPL) has launched a new range of specialist projector rigging solutions.
Four products are currently available – Rental Frames, Truss Mounts, Flying Mounts and a Portrait Adaptor – all developed by and for riggers and technicians, combining numerous features that offer straightforward and practical projector rigging options.
The streamlined and versatile Truss Mount is at the heart of the system. The tilt–and-swivel (T&S) mechanism underpinning the design is based on a ball joint and enables extremely quick and easy adjustment of the projector by one person. The Truss Mount’s rugged aluminium construction is aesthetically pleasing and also compatible with CPLs proprietary projector Rental Frames.
The Flying Mount Plate is a flat steel mounting-plate that can be laser cut to fit any type of projector. It bolts onto the bottom of the machine and easily attaches to the CPL Truss Mount bracket.
Using the CPL Portrait Adaptor, projectors can be straightforwardly and stably rigged ‘vertically’ in portrait format.
CPL’s Rental Frames are robustly constructed for the touring and live events sectors. The projector travels in the frame providing additional protection when in transit. The removable top bar gives an unrestricted field of vision when the projector is fitted with ultra-short throw lenses, while inbuilt movement adjustment for the projector on three axes aids alignment and gives ultimate flexibility. The Rental Frames also facilitate the straightforward stacking of projectors.
Rental Frames are available with projectors from CPL’s hire fleet, or for sale as stand-alone items. Rental Frames for all brands and models of projector together with custom elements can be supplied on request.
