Let’s start with understanding the basics of a rear-operated system. Rear-operated units need to have a way to remotely pan and tilt the camera. Be aware that some of the inexpensive ones do not even pan the camera, they only tilt via a cable, and panning can only occur by panning the entire arm rather than the camera head itself, which means you cannot do a very sophisticated compound move. However, more typically, rear-operated systems will be more complex than that, and will have a pan and tilt head that either is driven by motors or by a cable system, so that you have the ability to pan and tilt the camera as well as boom and pan the jib itself. The advantage of these systems is that they can position the camera far higher than one could hope to reach if manually operating the jib from the front and also be able to reach out over things.
