The Chrosziel Aladin MKII 3-Axis Wireless Lens Control System Kit is designed for the film industry as a wireless lens control system and controls Focus, Iris and Zoom on any Cine lens.
The main component of the kit is the Aladin MKII, which has a wireless range of 328 yards and features 16 RF channels at 433-434MHz to select from. The system lets you carry out automatic calibration of the lens parameters at the beginning of shooting. You can also switch off, reconfigure or change the battery, and then switch on again and resume shooting. The MKII is compatible with all ENG style lenses and is 3D-capable with up to 8 axis of motor control capability.
The kit is complete with three Heden M26VE digital motors that can be used with either 15 or 19mm rods and that come with three supporting 40" motor cables, an XLR power cable, and an Anton Bauer D-Tap cable.
- Control signals are transmitted as digital data packages in the 434 MHz band safely and precisely with 18-bit resolution
- The system calculates with 32-bit accuracy
