The XO-Boom support system transfers the weight of a boom pole from the operator’s arms and shoulders to their hips, without compromising the stability and control of conventional operation and intuitive mic cuing.
An elegant ergonomic solution for boom operation. XO-Boom allows for back-saving “weightless” boom operation and takes all weight and pressure away from arms, shoulders and back allowing for painless long takes. Designed by the filmmakers who brought camera operators the Ergorig System, boom operators and location sound mixers now get some much needed relief and career extension. Winner of the 2022 Hollywood Sound Expo Most Useful Product. (Boom pole and microphone not included.)
We’ve been working to save the backs and careers of camera operators for years now, but it’s finally time the audio people get some love. The new XO-Boom system shifts the weight of a boom pole from the operators arms and shoulders to their hips with weight displacement technology born from our experience with the Ergorig System.
