Height and depth of the cable reel is always constant, the width, which is measured parallel to the rotating axis, is customised. This scalable system allows delivering the PV drum series according to given parameters of cable length and diameter, keeping them as small as possible to save storage room.

Since 2005, after more than 2000 units sold without any claims, the PV- series has proven extreme durability and longevity resulting in
low total costs by an extremely long lifetime sametime reducing costs for repairs of cables and connectors by their protection as confirmed by longtime customers.

It is manufactured in one fixed size, tailored to match most common cables lengths and diameters for outside broadcasting applications. It is specifically dimensioned to take up to 300 meters of 9,2 mm SMPTE 311 camera cable making it suitable for most ob vans in terms of size.
