The modular rigging system uses 48mm diameter aluminium barrel in conjunction with a truss style conical coupling.
The system is designed as two parts - Modular Drop Arms which are single arms designed to be suspended with a coupler and 'H' Frames, which can be suspended or floor-standing with tank traps.
Shown above are some examples
From left to right are:
1. Three large 'H' frames topped with a pair of trigger clamps and a small 'H' frame suspending four moving lights.
2. Four Tees with thru connectors in a ladder configuration, shown with parcans or similar.
3. An arc of Modular Tees with various extensions to create this shape. These can be made more rigid for larger luminaires by using an inverted Tee at the top and connecting to the truss with two parallel couplers.
4. Four Tees with thru connectors in a ladder configuration, shown with parcans or similar.
5. A Pair of large 'H' frames connected to two tank trap adaptors and placed in two tank traps creating a floor standing assembly.
6. A large bank or parcans or similar suspended on two clamps/couplers with six small 'H' frames connected.
Camstage took a few photos during the early restoration stages. In one, Geoff Newitt, the projection engineer for Picturehouse, checks out the newly purchased mobile cinema. Then Camstage's Kiel waits as the trailer is opened so he can access the screen in Rendlesham. Kiel brought in his own water, mixed the cleaning solution and then spent hours scrubbing the screen. The effort resulted in an acceptable screen. But it didn't take long to determine the refurbished screen did not match Picturehouse's high standards. PictureHouse decided to spend more money and chose Camstage to install an up-to-date screen.
