While portability is a necessary requirement for outside-pickup equipment, several advantages result when portability is carried into the studio. To equip a studio of adequate size with fixed equipment for the operation of several cameras involves considerable time and expenditure. However, with portable studio equipment, the entire equipment installation can be located to suit studio needs, as well as moved to different studios or outside locations. The dolly-type equipment is described in some detail and systems for program control are discussed. Some of the design features discussed are portable and flexible synchronizing equipment, electronic view finders, oscilloscope monitors, and other operating facilities.
