New Longer, Lightweight Telescopic Production Pole Launched At NAB

Stroud, UK, April 2008: Lightwave Audio Systems, the manufacturer of microphone booms and support poles for the radio and TV and broadcast industry, is launching a new telescopic production pole at this year‘s NAB show.

The G5-4M is, as its name suggests, a four-metre long version of the existing 2.5-metre G5 pole, with the same patented, easily serviceable triple-cam locking system. Weighing a mere 21.8 ounces (618g) and just one metre long when collapsed, the carbon-fibre G5-4M is the perfect lightweight solution for small newsgathering or location recording teams. It is scheduled to begin shipping in May this year.

For more information about the G5-4M, go to, or come to Stand N8511 at NAB.
