Now K-Tek offers the Avalon Traveler in muted red or blue anodized aluminum tubing - the only colored professional boom poles on the market.

With their distinctive hues, these attractive poles are an excellent way to differentiate different work crews, or to distinguish a kit and keep it apart from others in the field. And the new colored Travelers are not just pleasing to the eye. Against a background such as a blue sky, or a brick building, they blend more fully into the scene than traditional black boom poles, becoming a subtler, less conspicuous presence in the background.

The first professional boom pole designed to fit in a standard equipment case, the K-Tek Avalon Traveler stores quickly for easy transportation and expands from a minimum length of just 20” (52cm) to a maximum reach of 6‘7” (201cm). Telescoping sections lock together via K-Tek‘s proprietary “captive collett” coupling system, for maximum holding power with minimum torque. Also available in standard black anodized aluminum or in the same high-quality graphite tubing as the award-winning Klassic series, with an extended length of up to 7‘8” (234cm), this lightweight, versatile six-section pole is ideal for ENG, EFP, and DV production.

The K-Tek Avalon Traveler is available unwired or factory wired with a high-quality internal coiled cord and a sturdy male XLR receptacle mounted in the base. Prices start at $210.00.

WMUR-TV Says FAA Drone Rules Preclude ENG
The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
