The Société Radio-Canada is emblematic by the quality of its television productions. It is therefore with pride that Artotech / Joel has just completed one of its most important projects to date, La Nouvelle Maison de Radio-Canada. A Design-Build project in collaboration with Broccolini, Go Multimedia, SNC-Lavalin and XYZ Cultural Technology. The work of this important mandate was carried out from October 2018 to August 2020.

- 84 motorized carriers
- Vortek model winches manufactured by the company ETC
- Speed of 30 feet / minute
- 650 lbs and 1150 lbs capacity, depending on winches
- Safety factor 10: 1

- 1 single system to operate the 84 carriers
- Modern multi-user system
- Power supply
- 2 types of spring reels, per carrier
- 208 V, 120 V and CAT 6 power outlets
- Allows smooth movement of cables with carriers
