MRMC – Flair via Ethernet & Product Developments
Mark Roberts Motion Control are leaders in the world of Motion Control Products, and have been supplying cutting edge Rigs and equipment to the industry for nearly 50 years*. Mark Roberts Motion Control rigs are now the defacto systems used around the world for feature films, music videos and commercials, with Broadcast solutions and other related industries now also selecting MRMC Rigs and Heads as their first choice.
We are proud to be the official UK supplier
of Robotic Equipment to Nikon at the Olympics.
Famously our Rigs and Heads have been used by Aardman in their feature films and TV Hit Wallace & Grommit, as well as more recent productions such as “Pirates, in an adventure with Scientists”.
Our goal is to broaden the horizons of Film and Television production by supplying Motion Control equipment which enables creative moves to be entered quickly and easily, and greatly increasing creative potentials and realizations.
To that end we are constantly seeking out and working with companies that push the envelope and are playing a major part in the shaping of Motion Control and Motion Control Techniques.
Stop Motion Pro worked very closely with us in developing the interfacing of the S4 and with their input the MRMC S4 stereoscopic stepper is now fully compatible with Stop Motion Pro.
Flair,The Ultimate Camera Control Software was developed in house and has been used for many years by MOCO Operators and professionals.
“Unlike most other Motion Control Software, Flair is written for film-making and is a winner from a film-makers point of view. Camera Moves are easily programmable and highly adjustable, with a variety of options to change the move’s parameters. the front end software is clear and the graphic displays are very helpful”
— Oliver Kunz, Studio Chief, Brains and Pictures, Vienna
The perfect partner to our Pan/Tilt Heads and Rigs has just been released fully enabled for Ethernet control. Thus making it more accessible to such environments as TV Broadcast and both studio based or outside filming.
Tim Richardson, a key member of the original line-up that released Flair and newly returned to our development team, recently announced:
“These days we sell Flair software ready to install on a laptop plus the head itself. It really is as simple as plug-and-play”.
*in 1966 originally the company was called mark Roberts Film Services.
