 Precise Booming

Feature film boom ops have to face a unique set of challenges. Even though the shot requirements are often known in advance, wide camera angles, multi-cam shots, moving actors or cameras, and complicated lighting can tax the attention of the most seasoned field professional.
These professionals know that having the right tools close at hand is an absolute necessity.

Understanding feature film booming requirements, we specially designed multilayer pullwind carbon tubes with 1.5 mm wall thickness.

Less segments for extra control

We reduced the number of segments to four to add stiffness and better balance with the long lengths of the QP range. This provides the extra control in situations where a long, extended pole is required.
The extraordinary rigidity allows a boom operator to swing and point the microphone with great precision as the boom bounce is minimized preventing the microphone from dipping into the frame.

More comfort thanks to internal cabling.

Internal cabling is a disputed subject within the sound community. While the pre-cabled booms offer added convenience, they are, of course, more vulnerable to rattle noise. This is why Ambient provides the choice to the individual professional by offering the QP series boom poles in both cabled and uncabled versions.

The cabled booms are equipped with in-house production, optimized ultra-thin cables. With an effective shielding and a polyurethane insulation, these durable cables provide excellent endurance while maintaining flexibility even in temperatures as low as -40° C (-40° F).
