XimeraX5 - the new generation is coming

The XimeraX5 is an ultra-light 5-axis FOG (fiber optic gyro) stabilized head for unshakable stability. It was designed from ground up as a versatile platform for many different Broadcast and Cine setups. It can carry large payloads, like 46x broadcast lenses, 1000mm Cine lenses, Sony F55 with Recorder, Sony P43 without modification, amongst others. As payload can be pre-assembled outside the gimbal, payload-exchange in the field is done within minutes.


Using a state-of-the-art 8-channel fiber-slipring, the XimeraX5 can supply various combinations of Video (SDI) and Data (Ethernet) channels. Out of the box, the XimeraX5 provides 2x3G SDI output, and a Gigabit Ethernet connection.
