Online Mark Roberts Motion Control Shop Now OPEN FOR BUSINESS

 

Some users may have noticed a new addition to our website last month. www.mrmoco.com/shop is our new online shop. Its only a small taster of what’s to come, but we thought we’d start by putting on some of our popular smaller products online, for users to buy directly from the website. It includes the more standard configurations of our small pan-tilt heads and sliders for motion control and time-lapse, including various controllers. It’s only a tiny portion of what we do, and buyers are always welcome to ask about customizations for their specific applications. It also calculates UPS shipping costs although for large orders it is best to get a direct quotation for shipping. More content will be added shortly, but you will find some interesting items on there.

**New Product Launch** – AFC100 Broadcast Motion Control Head

PRESS RELEASE – AFC100 Head – Accurate, Fast, Compact 3G HD Broadcast head released

As part of its expansion of broadcast-related products and services, Mark Roberts Motion Control are releasing the AFC100 compact robotic head. The world’s first broadcast head with the option for full 3G HD-SDI capable slip-rings allowing unlimited, cable-free panning, as well as full Ethernet control.
The new head has evolved from the success of the company’s range of versatile robotics including the Robo Head, SFH-30, SFH-50 and Ulti Head.

Offered with next generation slip rings, near silent operation and precision servos, the new head is aimed at servicing a wide range of demanding creative applications. A bespoke version of the AFC100 has already been commissioned for a medical facility, employing nine networked MRMC heads and a 3G HD workflow.

Managing Director, Assaff Rawner, commented, “This new head is testament to our focus on delivering high-end technology that meets new TV production standards, whilst ensuring we continue to provide a tailored and personalised service for our customers.”

If you came to the Expo we would like to say thank-you for visiting us on the MRMC / Camera Control inc stand and speaking with our representative from Mark Roberts Motion Control Ltd. We trust you found the show interesting and informative.

The MRMC Booth at CineGear 2012

On display on our booth were some of our smaller product line heads and track systems including the SFH-50 Pan-Tilt head with MSA-20 Handwheels control, the SFH-50 with Roll via Joystick control, and an SFH 30 with Monorail track capable of diagonal, vertical or horizontal motion. All of these systems are ideal for smaller HD cameras such as the RED One and Epics, the Alexa or DSLRs for live action motion control, remote camera work, time lapse and many other applications.

The new roll option on the SFH-50 Pan Tilt head offers what MRMC believe to be the worlds most compact Pan Tilt Roll head capable of carrying a wide range of professional cameras including the Arri Alexa, Red One & Epic, Canon 5D & 7D. The SFH-50 head released last year is proving to be very popular and has already found its way into a variety of locations and applications, including being used in Antarctica for wild life filming, being used as a remote head for car mounted filming, filming a new 3D animated feature and a variety of standard motion control and remote head applications.

The SFH-50 head is slightly bigger than its counter-part the SFH-30 Pan Tilt head but is designed specifically to cater for slightly larger cameras and to allow the option of a 360 degree roll. It really is compact but superbly strong by any standard. We don’t believe there is any other head on the market that offers the range of motion or payload or high-precision in such a small size and additionally at such a low cost.

As you can see from the photos of it with the Alexa and the RED, it carries the large cameras with aplomb, and in the short video footage from the Interbee exhibition in Japan, it can also be used with track and does equally well with long ENG type cameras and zooms. (with some minor restriction).

The head is designed to adapt to different uses, whether on a crane as a remote head, on a tripod or track for timelapse footage, in studio or on location for motion control work, it will fulfill any task with ease. The controllers can include wireless PDAs, Handwheels, Joysticks, Pan-bars or full motion control software, and that includes any motion control software, be it our own Flair software (recommended), Kuper or Lynx.
