Furio SE Live Dolly System

The Furio SE Live Dolly System is quiet, powerful and precise. Using quiet and reliable brushless DC motors, it is capable of transporting the full payload of the Furio Live head with ease. With its custom wheels and machined aluminum body, the Furio SE dolly provides a fast-moving, stable platform that can easily cover both ends of the stage. Meanwhile, the 3-stage Furio SE Lift integrates high strength linear guides with lightweight Carbon fiber to provide the ultimate in smooth, linear elevation. Unlike most high performance machines however, the Furio SE Live also comes with a whole host of smart features designed to guarantee it arrives safely, is easy to setup, operates flawlessly, and requires minimal servicing over its production lifespan.

Furio SE Live Dolly System

The Furio SE Live offers dramatic performance

Features Benefits
High Speed dolly Dolly travels at speeds of up to 3 m/s (straight track) enabling a single dolly to cover the entire stage
Ultra-fast Head 180 deg/s Pan/Tilit speed allows the head to whip around quickly to capture both audience and stage within an instant
Carbon Fiber Lift Design Enables increased lift height without adding weight or sacrificing strength or rigidity- ensuring a low center of mass and maintaining system stability
Internal linear rails Superior lift linearity, great pan accuracy, and repeatability across the entire lift range
Max. Optical Height of 2.2 m (7’ 3”)
Elevation Range (Lift Stroke) of 87 cm (34”)
Provides a wide range of shots and perspectives for great artistic freedom and creativity
Lift speed of up to 15 cm/s (6”/ sec) Enables Furio to get into position quickly

Easy to install

Features Benefits
Dual-switched DC power supplies automatically detect and switch between 110 V and 220 V Offers global worldwide compatibility without reconfiguration
Integrated power bar Distributes mains power for cameras, monitors and other devices
Complete array of status LEDs Simplifies and accelerates fault diagnosis
Self-recovering overcurrent detection and indication on all electrical ports Protects all electrical circuits
Integrated lift lock Ensures lift stays compressed during shipping, preventing damage to internal elements
Top and bottom handles Facilitate lift installation on dolly
Ergonomic upper handles Offers both horizontal and vertical hand positions, while exterior profile eliminates possibility of cable snags
Lift extension scale on second stage Provides visual indication of lift position
Local lift elevation control on Dolly Enables lift to be raised/lowered without connection to a control system – perfect for commissioning or servicing
Integrated cable management features Permits cables to be neatly and safely secured to the lift
Blind mate cable connection between lift and dolly Simplifies connection and protects cable and connectors from damage – particularly important for Furio Live applications where the system is setup and torn down frequently
Raincover hooks Permits a third party raincover to be installed

Easy to maintain

Features Benefits
Internal Linear guides Maintains superior column alignment over the life of the system – with zero maintenance
Struts in interior of lift tube Makes for a clean appearance and protection against cable snags or incidental damage
Internal magnetic encoder Immune to external interference with cables that could lead to lift position errors
Shares same dolly and lift hardware with Furio SE Studio Permits users who uses both systems (rental houses or large broadcasters for example) to use a single system for both applications
All electronics are contained in Field Replaceable Units (FRU) that can be swapped out in less than 60 seconds Streamlines spare part management, servicing, and replacement

The safest Dolly system in the industry today

Features Benefits
On-board Front and Rear e-Stops on dolly Immediately cuts power to the dolly, lift and head in order to ensure maximum safety
Remote e-Stops Permits E-Stop to be triggered from the control station
Unique constant regenerative braking Dolly comes to a smooth controlled stop, without locking up wheels
Gently flashing front and rear light bars Provides visual indicator that system is in motion
Safe-T-Lock wheels Prevents derailment, enables higher maximum speed, especially on curved tracks
Failsafe brake Keeps lift in position during power loss (or when e-Stop triggered), ensuring the camera does not drop if on-air
Silent Wheels

SilentWheels™ split wheel design
Dolly wheels are cut in half and equipped with 4 high precision ball bearings acting as a differential. This permits one side of the wheel to rotate at a different speed than the other to prevent disruptive noise through a curve.

Furio SE Live Track
Custom designed aluminum matte black track is back-lash free with pin and cone connections.

  • Tracks are available in any standard or custom-made straight lengths and curves of different diameters.
  • With a narrow track gauge of 36cm/14”, the system is portable and can easily fit into small spaces. Discrete and unobtrusive, it appears gracefully “on-air”
