We wanted to let you know we will be exhibiting at Cinegear in LA next month. This will be the first show we've ever demonstrated Bolt on track! With speeds of up to 6 metres per second at the camera, it is the only technology of its kind — so you won’t want to miss it!
Watch this fascinating behind the scenes video for a Honda commercial. It was a challenging advert to create, requiring some clever ingenuity. Our Titan arm provided a great solution to help create the visually captivating video!
We wanted to bring you up to speed on some good news here at MRMC. In the last three years we’ve had some incredible expansion and opened up great new markets. From 2013, year on year we’ve had an increase of 60% in sales and production. In turn this has given rise to manning up the team here. We’ve expanded our staff by nearly 40%, and still looking for more talented individuals to join our exciting and expanding company. So if you are an enthusiastic electronic, robotic or software engineer feel free to send us a CV. For more information on joining us, click here
At NAB we showed countless demonstrations and met many fantastic people. For us the show is a great opportunity to make new friends, meet old acquaintances and of course showcase all the latest developments we’ve been working on here at Mark Roberts.
In case you missed us there, or perhaps just didn’t get a chance to get out to the event, we’ve put together a final overview of what went down. To get a glimpse of the technology behind our newest camera tracking technology check out the photos below and watch the short video above with our Managing Director Assaff Rawner. The video was generously created by IABM (International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers).
At MRMC we are proud of our major new product releases and concentrate so hard on them we often forget the significance of our many incremental feature additions and product upgrades that occur on a daily basis but may not be headline news or create a flurry of press releases. Recently we’ve been looking through our work over the past months and realised those small changes amounted to a lot, so we thought we’d list some. If you want more info on any of them just let us know:
Developments and tests to make the Bolt High Speed rig 20% faster than before.
Developing and Testing the new Version 6.0 of our Academy award winning motion control software.
Turntable range increased from small to large, and most with speeds in excess of 100 degrees per second.
Flair multi-controller created, allowing multiple motion control rigs to be controlled from a central source.
Orbital XL rig created for super-sized e-commerce photography.
Head and Flair Ethernet API created allowing any of our products to be controlled directly from 3rd party software.
Improved or implemented interfacing to a number of 3rd party products, including DMX lighting controls, Dragonframe, 6-degrees-of-freedom joysticks, and various 3D tracking systems.
Interfacing to Oculus Rift.
Broadcast vertical columns for on-air moves.
The list is long and lengthy, this is just a snapshot. With 6 full-time developers and several support engineers and freelancers, the development is rapid and ever-changing – so if you don’t immediately see what you need just ask.
