Chrosziel AL2-3-403 overview

  • 1Description

The Aladin2 (3D) 2+ Wireless Lens Control System for Focus/Iris and 3D from Chrosziel allows a camera assistant to control lens settings on ENG and cinema cameras during shoots where the camera itself is inaccessible or shouldn't be touched, such as when mounted on a Steadicam. Depending on the lens system being used, the Aladin2 can control a number of settings, including focus, iris, record start/stop, power on/off, as well as 3D convergence and IA (inter-axial distance).

The Aladin2 features two key pieces of hardware: the hand unit (transmitter) and the motor controller (receiver). The hand unit features a follow focus style wheel with adjustable tension that can be configured to operate focus, iris, zoom, and more. It powers from a rechargeable NiMH battery, of which two are included. The motor controller features motor outputs allowing a single unit to control up to eight separate operations. The motor controller is designed to power locally from the camera itself or another nearby DC source and will accept power sources of 10 to 34V.

The Aladin2 supports automatic lens calibration at the beginning of the shoot and will remember the most recent settings even if the transmitter is powered down and the battery removed. Settings are changed through a menu system that features joystick navigation, and the OLED display screen can withstand temperatures as low as -4°F.

Control signals are transmitted as digital data packets in the 434 or 869 MHz band with 18-bit resolution
Suitable for many motors with digital incremental encoders, such as Heden M26VE, Scorpio SB92, Preston DM2, and Betz Tools BTM7
Adjustable back-lash compensation system designed to eliminate play
Controls 8 motors in S3D mode, and will synchronously operate two cameras' iris, focus, and zoom setting. Additionally, automates the rig settings for angulation (convergence), IA (inter axial distance), and is able to communicate with the Sony MPE200 Multi Image Processor
Controls digital Canon and Fujinon lens motors directly through the two auxiliary ports; and can operate two lenses synchronously if required
USB port for metadata recording, software updates, and lens- and rig-data handling
Two serial interfaces for PC interaction
Provides dimming control for the Aladin Light Source (AL-LS) and Colibri, and the DMX dimmer/receiver unit FD-400E
Able to transmit through thick walls interior wall as well as metal structures when used outdoors. Offers better performance than systems operation in the GHz-range -- maximum transmission distance varies depending on the structural conditions of the set
Provides ON/OFF and start/stop recording function when used in conjunction with compatible cameras
The "Electronic Gear" feature allows the operator to define the relationship between user input and the reaction at the lens (spreading)
Non-volatile memory retains a record of the last settings so they will be readily available the next time the Aladin is used
The motor controller (receiver) supports powering from a wide range of DC sources, ranging from 10 to 34 V
Power is stabilized and can be adjusted in five steps. Plus it is still possible to get powerful performance from the motors for a low-power source. The torque will be automatically adjusted during the calibration step
With a modular design, each individual function can be combined into one transmitter through simple assembly. Here, too, all of the last individual settings are saved
Reverse direction of the motor rotation is possible on both the hand-units (transmitters) and on the motor controller (receiver)
An LED column shows the position of the zoom
The hand unit features low energy consumption, and a single battery is estimated to last an entire shooting day
The transmitter provides 16-channels, which can be selected at the push of a button. The RF Spectrum analyzer helps you find the best channel for transmission, and gives optical feedback to ensure both units are set to the same channel
Adjustable fluid damping for the focus hand wheel
Emergency Feature: Wired transmission is possible by connecting the transmitter and receiver using a standard video cable with BNC plugs
