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 Products Success – A Sneak Peek

New Products Success – A Sneak Peek 

 

 

IBC Exhibition, Amsterdam, this month saw the release of a number of exciting new products by Mark Roberts Motion Control. If you weren’t there you’ll be finding out more about these products in the coming newsletters and website updates, but it suffices to say that some of these are designed to revolutionize the way motion control and broadcast robotics are used – and this is a sneak peek at a couple of the products we have been busy with.

Many of our products are being switched over to use Ethernet, allowing heads and rigs to be controlled via Ethernet and all the features such a facility instantly includes, like long cable runs, wireless connections, remote control over internet and even as shown at IBC wireless control using an iPad with our new app designed specifically for controlling multiple cameras much like a standard studio PTZ Joystick controller, only wirelessly.

The Wireless MSA-20 and Ulti-Head

The MSA-20 Handwheels and the Ulti-Head make a powerful pair, giving users a very versatile, easy-to-use, fully repeatable and motion control remote head.

With an indoor range of up to 250 feet the wireless option adds even more freedom for the Director or DofP.

All the functions of running the Ulti-Head from the MSA-20 remain the same whether one runs in wireless or wired mode, making the system a perfect unit for remote head or repeating moves, including full control of focus and zoom functions.
