VariZoom VZCINEMAPRO-K4 Cinema Pro Remote Head w/ Joystick
With our ergonomic pro Jibstick controller, the Cinema Pro-K4 offers high-performance pan/tilt/zoom/focus in an incredibly user-friendly package. With all the speed and stability of the advanced motion control kits, but no menus or complex settings, and far fewer buttons and options, the Cinema Pro-K4 goes to work with minimal training and setup. Utilizing powerful but quiet drivetrains and full slip rings, the Cinema Pro head is capable of tracking the most delicate to the most intense actions with equal grace. The Pro Jibstick controller does not allow record/playback, intervalometer, go-to-marks, or camera sync. The K4 control offers on-the-fly custom motion limits, independent pan & tilt speed control, smoothing control, motor power toggle, independent response direction switches for pan/tilt/zoom/focus, included analog zoom/focus remote, digital and analog lens control input, on-the fly zoom centering, PC-compatible USB interface for advanced setup and firmware updates. Now Available: Optional HD Video slip rings for pan and tilt.
The deluxe Pro Jibstick control kit offers the simplicity and intuitive design favored by operators, but now adds many of the features from our more advanced control systems. The controller features on-the-fly custom soft limit setting to restrict the range of pan/tilt motion - a very useful feature for preventing lens collisions, to limit the field of view, lock position, or set specific location marks. Integral lens control via plug-in pistol-grip remote allows 2-hand pan/tilt and zoom/focus operation.The Pro Jibstick also has smoothing, speed control, motor disable, direction controls for pan/tilt/zoom/focus, and a USB interface for advanced setup options including joystick deadband and lens voltage.
Designed and built by Academy Award winning motion picture engineers, the Cinema Pro has been chosen by DPs and producers around the world for its smoothness, stability, and versatile feature set. In production for many years now, the Cinema Pro is extremely reliable, easy to set up and operate, and capable of imperceptibly slow or lightning fast moves with no sacrifice in stability. Carrying an impressive set of standard features and a proud pedigree, the Cinema Pro outperforms the competition at a fraction of the price and works with a huge range of film and video cameras.
The new Jibstick Kit is a streamlined, user-friendly system that has all of the electromechanical performance of the other kits, but without full motion control capability. This Jibstick control has a professional long-throw joystick mounted in an ergonomic grip base and all controls and settings are within reach of your fingertips. The Jibstick system includes a zoom/focus controller, but it also integrates seamlessly with our TOC lens controls systems. The Jibstick works beautifully where intuitive manual control is needed, and it can be upgraded later with an advanced console and pan bars or hand wheels. The new Jibstick allows you to set independent motion limits for pan and tilt, lock off pan and/or tilt, switch motor power off, reverse direction on pan/tilt/zoom/focus independently, adjust speed limits for pan & tilt independently, and adjust smoothing control for softer starts & stops.
