Point Tracking Demo at ARRI Media

Point Tracking Demo at ARRI Media

Many of you may have seen the new Mark Roberts Motion Control Ulti-head being exhibited at various shows.  It’s an extremely accurate pan/tilt head specifically designed for motion control and runs from Flair software.

When the Ulti-head is mounted on an encoded Technocrane it can perform a feature called ‘point tracking’.  Once you have selected a target and have informed the system, the camera will always keep pointing and focused on the target whilst you move the Technocrane manually. You can track, rotate, lift, & extend with complete freedom of movement.

There is going to be demonstrations to illustrate the uses of the Flair software in this setup at Arri Media Grip (Uxbridge, London) on Tuesday 12th April to small groups on the hour. Refreshments provided. Please email Sophie Roberts sophie@mrmoco.com for an appointment or Justin Pentecost at cameflex@tiscali.co.uk.

We are also particularly interested in hearing any views from post production and TV technicians regarding the use of this feature which can save lots of time and effort on live action shoots or live broadcasts. A typical example would be a music concert. You simply tell the system where the musician is on stage and you can then move the crane around manually while the musician is kept in perfect shot and focus, with minor adjustments possible with handwheels or joysticks if you want to.
