Freefly Systems, designers and manufacturers of the MoVI 3-axis stabiliser family, has begun delivery of its new controller.
The MoVI Controller is purpose built to provide for a true two-user MoVI stabiliser setup by letting a second operator control pan, tilt, roll, focus, iris, and zoom of a MoVI-mounted camera while the first operator holds the system. The controller can be used on the M5, M10 and soon to be released M15 stabilisers.
The controller is built with full carbon fibre construction for durability. In addition to its precision joystick, which delivers tactile feedback, allowing smooth and accurate control, the controller has a high-resolution focus knob, zoom control rocker and a Shutter/Record start-stop button.
The new controller provides access to MoVI configuration settings, and features assignable buttons and knobs offering the ability to customise the Controller to an individual operator’s working style.
In addition to sending control information to the MoVI stabiliser, the controller receives and displays information from the stabiliser, such as whether it is locked into GPS control and how many satellites the MoVI is locked to.
Featuring a long-range wireless link (1200 ft.), the controller delivers real-time telemetry from the MoVI stabiliser. It is designed with hard points for mounting a monitor and accessories, and can be powered by V-Mount batteries or by Freefly Systems’ AC power adapter. The Controller Includes a 5V USB power output, tripod mount and neck strap for mobile operation.
