A Logical Step in Workspace Innovation

In the fast-paced world of film and photography, efficiency and ease of use are not just conveniences, they are necessities. That is why at INOVATIV, we’ve taken a significant leap forward with our latest innovation: the Motorized Apollo. It is an impactful enhancement to our current workstation—the Apollo—and represents a refined solution for professionals to improve their workstation efficiency with motorized technology, ensuring effortless mobility and handling.

Capturing the Journey

The Motorized Apollo’s story is driven by user experience and feedback. From initial concept to the final release, each step of the journey has been shaped by the voices of users who rely on our workstations daily, and guided by our commitment to meet the needs within our community.

The User Experience
Our journey began with the real-world experiences of professionals who frequently faced the physical challenges working in dynamic environments. A recurring issue was the immense strain of manually transporting heavy equipment. This was particularly evident with our Apollo workstation, known for its massive 1200 lbs payload capacity. The potential to carry such heavy payloads made the Apollo the prime candidate for motorization. The Motorized Apollo was thus conceived with a dual purpose: to significantly alleviate the physical stress of transporting heavy gear and to ensure our users could utilize its full payload capacity with ease. By motorizing the Apollo, we knew we would be directly addressing the needs of our users, prioritizing their health, safety, and efficiency in the field.

From Concept to Prototype
Armed with this crucial feedback, our design team faced a definitive challenge: how could we adapt INOVATIV’s heavy-duty Apollo to alleviate the physical strain experienced by professionals in demanding environments? The answer lay in motorization. Our goal became sharply focused—to reimagine the Apollo as a dynamic, motorized workstation.

Demonstrating the Motorized Wheel System
At NAB and CineGear 2023, we showcased the Motorized Wheel System prototype, designed in collaboration with Make Your Cart Go. This prototype served as the first iteration of a fully-integrated, motorized system for the Apollo. Many got to experience this first-hand, which helped us increase our insight on the Motorized Wheel System to ensure that it not only met but exceeded professional expectations.

Final Release — The Motorized Apollo
Now, the Motorized Apollo steps out in its enhanced form, expanding upon its first introduction at industry events. For instance, a key feature we honed in on was the Hydraulic Brake System. Understanding the challenge of halting the full momentum of up to 1200 lbs, especially on inclines, we designed this system to ensure a safe and controlled stop, no matter the load or terrain. Such important additions are steps we’ve taken to ensure the Motorized Apollo encompasses everything it needs to be, embodying the epitome of our innovative spirit and user-centric design.
