Talos

MOTION CONTROL RIG

Speed 3M/S
Payload 40KG
Height 3.4M

Talos is a medium sized rig designed for easy, portable motion control – making it ideal for location work. Half the weight of the larger Milo rig, the Talos still offers a wide operating envelope, making it a good alternative for shoots where space or transport is a factor.

KEY FEATURES

ACCESS ALL AREAS

ACCESS ALL AREAS

Able to access areas that other motion control rigs might struggle to, the Talos is small enough to pass through standard sized doorways, without dismantling, to enable easy filming in small buildings and confined spaces, even when operating on rails.

FLEXIBLE OPERATION

FLEXIBLE OPERATION

For flexibility, the Talos Utilises MRMC’s Ulti-Head, which has the option to be under- or over-slung, helping achieve maximum or minimum lens heights.

Additionally, you can use the Ulti-Head as a standalone Motion Control or Remote Head. Controlled by our powerful Flair motion control software, Talos is easy to use and integrates well with CGI software.

EXTREMELY PORTABLE

EXTREMELY PORTABLE

Designed to operate equally well in the studio or on location, the Talos is an extremely portable rig that can be set up by two people and prepared for action in under an hour when shipped in its principal parts. Operating on rigid Moy 620 track or even better the Precision Dolly Rail, it is not only easy to set up but its narrow width allows filming in restricted spaces.

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 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

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 which can be joined together to produce an unlimited length of track.
