studios where automation is
required, they are easy to use
for programmable shots in
combination with our G-track dolly and
Starcam Telescoping Column.
407 Egripment Slider
The latest product from the
company, the Egripment Slider is
portable, easy to set up and comes
completely mounted on its track,
packed in a Pelicase.
The lightweight aluminum pack track
of 1.2m (3ft) is equipped with levelling
feet and can be extended to longer
lengths, when needed.
The crossbars of the track offer
different mounting options to be used

in combination with your tripod either
100mm or 150mm, lighting stand with
28mm spigot or monopods with 1/4"
and 3/8" threads.
The Egripment Slider is ideal for
camera packages up to 20kg (44lbs)
and can be used in over and under
sling configurations.
The Egripment wheels are adjustable
and specially manufactured for
precision and endurance, providing
a solid base for optimum shock-free,
smooth movements.
Due to its compact size, all
equipment fits into a standard Pelicase
1770 and weights no more than 26kg
(57lbs), making it the perfect travel
companion for all types of productions.
Xtreme T10
Following
Egripment's
ground
breaking Telescoping Xtreme T12
Carbon Fibre Crane first produced in
2010, Egripment's Xtreme T10 is a
further extension of this line of cranes
with more innovation and creative
engineering.
Ready for Virtual or Augmented
operation: The Xtreme T10 is not just a
scaled down version of the Xtreme T12.

Instead, Egripment utilized its Carbon
Fiber technology and engineering
experience with both conventional
and telescoping cranes over the last 35

Craig Peterschmidt, Picture Factory

plus years, to produce a new ground
up engineering model, designed
around the need for precise and
smooth operation for Augmented and
Virtual Reality.
Telescoping Crane: Rather than first
building a crane, then deciding how
to make it work for this fast growing
segment of the broadcast and film
industry, Egripment engineered the
Xtreme T10 directly toward AR /
VR utilisation. However, because of
the ease of use designed into every
Egripment product, the Xtreme
T10 is also completely suitable for
conventional Telescoping Crane use in
the industry.
Carbon Fiber: Use of laid up
carbon fibre technology, along with
cold-drawn, rolled carbon bearing
steel, enabled Egripment to create a
lightweight, fast action, and incredibly
smooth crane operation.
Dolly: In addition to the Xtreme T10
Telescoping Crane, Egripment also
created an entirely new dolly and
telescoping column to augment the
operation of this crane arm.
Encoded Axis: All axes of the crane
arm, dolly and telescoping column may
be fully encoded to become an integral
part of any AR / VR system.
Economical: Whether an operator's
needs include the best and latest
technology for Augmented and Virtual
Reality, or you just need a 100 percent
reliable, smooth and easy to set up and
use telescoping crane, the Egripment
Xtreme T10 will suit your needs at a
very economical cost.
