KEY FEATURES

Modula Configurations

As its name implies, the Modular is multi configurable. It has 3 main set-ups.

  • The first is a simple Pan/Tilt head mounted on the track base. With tripod legs different camera heights can be achieved.
  • Secondly a lift column can be mounted to the base to control vertical movement of the camera.
  • Lastly with the turret and arm, the Modular becomes a multi axis motion control rig with Track, Lift, Rotate, Pan and Tilt, Zoom and Focus. In whatever configuration the Modular is ready to shoot within an hour of arrival on set.

Feature Highlights

SPEED

The Modula can reach rail speeds of more than 4 metres per second.

LIGHTWEIGHT or PRECISION RAIL

Can be mounted to lightweight rail for ease transport, or use precision rail for maximum rigidity

COST EFFECTIVE

Start with a simple head and track system, then gradually expand the kit as the budget and need arises.

MANUALLY MOVE RIG

The Track axis is ‘back driveable’, meaning the rig can be pushed manually to record the required movement which can then be saved and replayed by Flair.

Track Options

Precision Bearing Rail

Designed to not bend or twist during any motion or acceleration/deceleration, the Precision Bearing Rail is the best track to use with the Talos. It’s inherent rigidity and straightness provides the ultimate stable platform for the Talos, allowing for high-accuracy at speed, even over uneven ground.

Available in 1.2, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.

 

Lightweight Bearing Rail

Delivering higher levels of performance than industry standard dolly rails, the Lightweight Bearing Rail is lighter and more portable than the Precision Bearing rail and can be taken apart if necessary for easy transportation.

Available in 1.6, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.
