Short description:

Designing the perfect boom with perfect characteristics requires a compromise of sometimes opposing demands.

03-BOO-STR-014

Designed by Ambient Recording, the Feature-Film Boom Pole is suitable for recording audio in the context of film, particularly in multi-cam shots, wide-camera angles, complicated lighting scenarios, and any scene involving complicated interactions between actors and cameras. The boom itself is fashioned out of multi-layer pull-wind carbon tubing with a wall thickness of 1.55 mm, giving you a stiff and well-balanced pole. This allows you to pivot, swing, and aim a microphone in a controlled manner.

The pole includes an internal straight ultra-thin cable; this cable sports both effective shielding and a polyurethane insulation, thus ensuring a durable, flexible operation—even in temperatures as low as -40°C (-40°F). At the tip of the boom is a stainless steel 3/8" thread for attachment to shockmounts. Screw locks provide greater security.

Designed for Flexibility in Work

  • Designed for documentary and engineering booming work
  • Built with five segments, effectively delivers a better collapsed-to-extended ratio, enabling easy transportation while providing long lengths when needed
  • QXS pull-wind carbon fiber tube designed with a 1mm wall thickness to achieve lightweight with high durability properties

Connector & Materials

  • While all mechanical parts are machined out of aircraft aluminum, the 3/8” thread is made out of solid stainless steel to survive thousands of microphone changes
  • Internal soft felt bushings ensure rattle-free operation and no seizing by dirt, humidity, or cold temperatures
  • 1mm custom-made pull wind carbon fiber tube
  • Composed of five segments

Time-Saving

  • Collars feature a machined knurl that provides firm grip to secure a fast and confident handling of the pole
  • The locking system locks fast and easy while providing a strong lock between segments, for better prevention of slipping and twisting

THE TUBE PHILOSOPHY

"The boom pole is the most important tool for a boom operator. In the hands, it should be an extension of the body, enabling precise and intuitive work.“ Designing the perfect boom with perfect characteristics requires a compromise of sometimes opposing demands.

THE TUBE PHILOSOPHY

The heart of a boom pole is the tube. A perfect boom pole tube has to be lightweight and rigid, to minimize bending and to maximize control of microphone position while fully extended. At the same time they should be resilient enough to avoid breaking when swinging the boom. The surface should be smooth for easy action and to prevent handling noise, but with a matte finish so as not to cause reflections.

THE CARBON FIBER STATEMENT

The only material that possesses the characteristics to satisfy all these demands is carbon fiber. The manufacturing process of carbon fiber tube allows us to specify its composition. With parameters such as fiber-type, fiber-arrangement, wall-thickness, tube diameter and manufacturing method, we gain the possibility to create something completely unique and specialized to satisfy your requirements. Ambient offers four unique lines of boom poles to address the huge variety of needs of today’s field sound professionals.
