Modula Motion Control Rig
The Modula System is a rig specifically designed to meet a variety of shooting conditions. As the name suggests, it is modular and can be configured depending on shooting requirements.
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.
Modula On Track
The simple configuration of a Pan/Tilt head (such as the Ulti-head) mounted on the track base. With tripod legs different camera heights can be achieved.
Modula with Lift
Adding a lift column to the base to control vertical movement of the camera.
Full Modula Rig Configuration
Lastly with the turret, arm and track, the Modular becomes a multi axis motion control rig with Track, Lift, Rotate, Pan and Tilt, Zoom and Focus.
Additionally, the Track axis is ‘back driveable, which, simply put, means that the rig can be pushed manually to record the motion required, which can then be repeated precisely as often as needed and exported into CGI software.

A natural and intuitive way of controlling a motion control head, Pan Bars can be used in isolation or conjunction with other axis controllers, and movements can be recorded and accurately played back as required.
HAND HELD BOX
The Hand Held Box, or Jog Box, is a remote unit that connects to a Flair controlled rig, giving the user the freedom to move around the studio when inputting moves. Users can configure the Hand Held Box to individual requirements.
Gain accurate manual control of the focus and aperture of your lens. Use the Focus/Iris Controller together with the MSA-20 Handwheels or Flair Motion Control software to record and playback lens movements.
Manually control the focal length of your lens with the Zoom Controller. Use together with the MSA-20 Handwheels or Flair Motion Control software to record and playback the zoom motion.
Use Bloop Lights to mark specific frames with a bright flash of light during shooting. The ‘blooped’ frame enables editors to match up angles from a multi-camera shoot quickly.
FOCUS/IRIS/ZOOM/ZOOM LENS CONTROL MOTORS
Playback programmed moves or record manual lens movements for later playback with these precision-machined, highly accurate lens control motors. Compatible with wide a variety of types and sizes of lenses.
Turn Preston, Arri or C-Motion Focus, Iris and Zoom remote wireless units into a full motion control system with the APFIZ unit. Each APFIZ unit can handle three separate motors and allows Flair to record any movements made using the wireless controller.
Connect of your external equipment, such as lights, to the Flair Motion Control software using the Triggers Box. This simple solution allows you to trigger all of your equipment through Flair, giving you full, accurate control of every aspect of your shoot.
Connect the rig or Flair software to the different types of camera to enable control of on/off, synchronisation and other camera functions.
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.
