Thanks to its modular design, low weight and small footprint, the Soundcart Audio Mini trolley is very popular on feature movie sets.
It can host a recorder (Cantar X3, 688 or Scorpio, with or without its soundbag), a small desk mixer (SX-ES64) or a remote (Cantaress, Cantarem, CL-12), a splitter (Octopack) with 4 dual-receivers, antennas, one or two boom holders, one or two HD video monitors, and of course a DC Audiovisual power station (Mentor or Junior for the less greedy).
But it suffers from two major handicaps, its mini casters at the front and its not large enough base (the famous sustentation polygon). With all the heavy devices in height, its stability can be precarious and its casters roll flat with difficulty except on perfectly smooth ground. Worse, the slightest obstacle on one of the casters can make it tip forward.
Based on an idea by the sound mixer Benoit Guérineau, former technician at DCA, the small casters have been replaced by large ones, placed further forward, thus preventing the trolley from tipping over and allowing it to roll flat on any type of ground (except gravel, sand or snow!), but with a slightly deeper footprint.
This device being modular, it is always possible to return to the mini casters in a few hex key turns.
