ETC’s Prodigy FlyPipe is a self-climbing hoist designed to help transform under-utilized spaces into creative environments. Structural engineering limitations for black box theatres, school cafeterias, gymnasiums, and churches have prevented the use of rigging technology in the past. Now because of its light weight and ease of installation, Prodigy FlyPipe is an ideal solution for front-of-house and overhead hanging positions of lighting fixtures, AV equipment, and soft goods.

Add curtains and speakers to transform a school cafeteria into a performance space. Access lighting and sound gear in your black box theatre with ease. Improve the visibility of your projector screens or televisions. Installation locations are nearly limitless. Prodigy FlyPipe is available in lengths of 18, 28, and 38 feet.

Bring the world of entertainment technology to a new level as you help schools enhance their STEAM programs. No more lifts. No more ladders. No more catwalks. No more heavy, dangerous, counterweight systems. Full accessibility for anyone and everyone.
