It offers complete remote control of lens height and pan-tilt head and is designed for use with ENG camcorders with a Canon or Fujinon lens and LANC-enabled Canon/Sony (H)DV or Panasonic DV, HD handheld camcorders.

The complete Traveler jib set fits into two hard cases (one larger roller case and a smaller suitcase).
The jib comes with a slip ring for remote head pan movement. The HD signal can pass through the slip ring, which means the remote head can output the HD signal. The remote head has max payload of 22 lb.
