Catch Kupo at Prolight +Sound 2017

Light-KCP-636B Big Boom (Medium)

Big Boom is the latest addition to Kupo’s boom arms series and is on display at Prolight and Sound, which is currently on in Frankfurt Germany.

The boom arm features a four-way geared control design including pan, tilt, rotation and telescopic extensions which allows you to have your lights in any difficult position with ease and comfort. The 1-1/8ʼʼ (28mm) junior receiver and 5/8ʼʼ (16mm) baby receiver on top of the aluminium telescopic column cater for any lighting fixture securely mounted with positive locking knobs.

Fully folded, the length of the arm is 2.36M (7.8ʼ). With the telescopic column, Big Boom can be extended to maximum 3.63M (12ʼ) to meet the demands of most jobs.

A saddlebag style counterweight bag with holding straps securely attached on the boom will increase the boom stability. Big Boom is ideal for mounting on castered wind-up stands to secure the exact position for your light with ease and convenience.

All the crank handles are foldable and equipped on the boom – making it ready-to-use and convenient. The unique mechanical design allows boom to fold down neatly, which provides you with an ideal solution for storage and transportation.

The other product to be featured by Kupo is the Click Stand. This innovative stand features a clever interlocking mechanism that allows it to fold stand flat and click to another in a snap. The unique four-way interlocking design provides no limit to the number of stands you can click together. This keeps your kit well organised during storage or transport.

Constructed from lightweight aluminium alloy, this compact, portable stand is ideal for outside shoots or moving around the studio. It is also equipped with an air-cushion to prevent lighting fixtures from slamming down when the locking knob is not tightened properly. An optional strap, the CXST01, with two clasps can be attached on the plastic locking loops to easily carry a set over your shoulder.

If you are at Prolight and Sound, don’t miss the opportunity to see Big Boom  and Click Stand for yourself!
