The masterpiece of our boom pole factory
A pole without compromises, handcrafted in Germany.
Designing the QS was a dream come true for the development team. The goal was to make the best feature film pole possible. Thus, the decision was made to manufacture the QS boom pole from handmade prepreg carbon fiber tubes. Although an extremely time-consuming way to produce tubes, it provides Ambient the possibility to design the characteristics layer by layer.
Our aim was to create a boom so stiff, lightweight and well balanced that the boom op can operate a microphone precisely like a surgeon operating a scalpel, but from an 18 feet distance!
Tube design layer by layer for best performance.
Thus it is handmade out of Prepreg carbon. This is an extremely time-consuming way of production but it gives us the possibility to design the tube characteristics layer by layer. Our aim was to create a boom so stiff, lightweight and well balanced that the boom op can control his microphone like a surgeon controls his scalpel but from an 18 feet distance! Besides the tubing we refashioned the screw locks for better grip when working with gloves.
The QS pole is available in two sizes with optional extension.
All boom operators have their particular applications and workflows. To best integrate the Quickpole booms into all of these, Ambient offers a variety of accessories to customize and optimize each pole.
