KEY FEATURES

MODULA CONFIGURATIONS

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.

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.

Feature Highlights

Speed

The Modula can reach rail speeds of more than 3 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.

Handwheels

Handwheels

Frame your shot and accurately record manual camera movements for repeated playback in Flair. Compatible with all MRMC Motion Control heads and rigs, and assignable in Flair to control any axis of motion, the MRMC balanced handwheels have a very fluid feel just as top DoPs and directors would expect. Additional standard built-in features like electronic gearing/scaling and direction adjustment make the handwheels a perfect accessory for all rigs.

Track Options

PRECISION BEARING RAIL

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 Milo. It’s inherent rigidity and straightness provides the ultimate stable platform for the Milo, allowing for high-accuracy at speed, even over uneven ground.

Available in 1.2, 1.8 & 3 metre sections.

LIGHTWEIGHT BEARING RAIL

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.
