Mark Roberts Motion Control at Cine Gear Expo – June 20th 2008
Next month Mark Roberts Motion Control will be showing the new Talos motion control rig at Cinegear. This will be the first appearance of the hugely popular Talos in North America since its debut at IBC, Amsterdam, in September last year. Since its release the Talos has worked on numerous locations around the world, and this rig will now be available from Camera Control Inc. in Santa Monica.
The Talos is an 8 axis moco system, designed for accuracy, speed, rigidity, portability and all the qualities the Milo is known for but in a smaller more compact version, designed to fit through standard doorways and about half the weight of the Academy Award winning Milo.
The Talos runs off the industry standard Flair software, giving full integration with CGI packages. It can move with speeds in excess of 8ft per second and includes the motions of track, lift, rotate, pan, tilt, focus, zoom, iris, with plenty of room for additions like model movers.
On show will also be the motion control Ulti-head, now with full wireless facilities as well as the Modula’ Base which offers high speed motion control tracking shots.
Everyone is welcome to visit. We look forward to seeing you there.
