In 1989, Libec was launched as a global brand to offer professional camera support equipment and to respond with technological advances for the evolving image industry. Initially, the main lineup of Libec series were tripods and fluid heads for professional video users. Now, Libec has a wide range of camera supports including pedestals, a telescopic jib arm, an electronically-controlled remote head, remote controls, dollies, tracking rails, and more. Libec has not only achieved high repute in Japan, but also continuously gaining popularity worldwide.
The Libec ZC-9EX is a zoom controller designed specifically for the PMW-EX1 camcorder as well as Fujinon and Canon ENG lenses. The unit allows users to turn the handheld camcorder into a capable studio camera.
The Libec JB-30 Heavy Duty Kit with T102 Tripod and DL-8 Dolly is a full-featured jib that supports film or video cameras weighing up to 44 lbs (20 kg). The head attachment is adaptable between 75mm and 100mm, and may be reversed when an ant's-eye point of view is desired. Standard barbell-type plates (not included) are employed for the counterweight, and the whole assembly sets up and breaks down in a simple, logical manner.
