The ARRI SRH‑360 is a fully stabilized three-axis remote head that is compact and lightweight, but can support heavy payloads. An update of the SRH‑3 model, it is currently available to order with a production time of around two weeks.
In late August of 2020, ARRI China sold its first SRH‑360 to the rental house Xing Gunag Heng Yi in Beijing. Having previously tested the remote head at the ARRI China facility, Xing Gunag Heng Yi general manager Jia Hongwei and grip manager Guo Guorui set it up at their own offices as soon as they took delivery. With them was ARRI China sales manager Yu Liang, who demonstrated the SRH‑360’s exceptional abilities prior to it being taken on set by its new owners.
Speaking about their reasons for investing in an SRH‑360, Mr. Jia said, “Our rental company didn’t have many stabilized remote heads, but recently productions have been expressing a need for them, so we realized we didn’t have enough. High-end remote heads that are heavy and expensive are not popular, because productions are very strict with their budgets at the moment. Smaller remote heads are gaining in popularity, but there were not really any options for a head that is compact but still very high quality. I had been interested in the ARRI SRH‑3, but when the SRH‑360 came along, as well as this new level of market demand, we decided it was a great time to get one.”
