MOVE'N SEE PIX01A Overview

The Pixio Auto-Follow System allows you to have your camera automatically pan with you as you move around during a presentation, sporting event, dance rehearsal, and pretty much any other activity, indoors or outdoors. The system features a compact camera support called a "robot" and a wearable watch that links to the robot wirelessly from 3 to 330 feet away without line of sight required. Attach the robot to a tripod or stand, mount your camera on the robot, and put on the watch. Then, just turn on the system and film yourself. Wherever the watch goes, the camera will follow. The Pixio becomes your own personal camera operator. The robot also has a silent motor, so you can add an external mic to your setup if you'd like to record higher-quality audio.

The robot supports up to 5 lb cameras, including DSLRs and action cameras. Any camera that meets this weight capacity can be attached and used to achieve panning motion. But if you use one of the many compatible cameras (see list below), you'll also be able to activate automatic zooming in/out as well as trigger record on/off from the watch. The point of automatic zoom is to keep the subject the same size in the frame as he or she moves closer or farther away. Additionally, the frame size itself can also be adjusted by simply pressing the + or - button on the rear of the robot. The setting is saved into memory and can be used the next time you film.

The compatible cameras offer a MULTI, LANC, or A/V-R connector for plugging the robot into them. The compatible cameras are mostly consumer cameras but also some semi-pro and pro models (such as the Sony PXW-X70). Also, camera not on the list but with one of these connectors is almost definitely compatible for zoom/record capability.

Also included are three micro-beacons that are the key to the Pixio system. They are designed to be placed in different positions in your shooting location using supplied mini-tripods, and they provide the robot with its responsiveness, accuracy, and wireless range (indoors and outdoors). They are also used by the watch to measure its position 10 times per second by a triangulation technique. The micro-beacons don't require any special setup or calibration. Simply position them, and they work as soon as you simply switch them on.

The robot offers 360° endless pan rotation at a maximum speed of 120° per second. It can also be connected to a free-to-download mobile app using an optional interface called "smartphone/tablet tripod adapter." The app allows you to control who is filmed from which robot if you have more than one, the tracking smoothness, and more. The robot is designed to be used mounted on a tripod or stand with a 3/8"-16 mounting screw. If you have a tripod with a 1/4"-20 mounting screw, you can use a 1/4"-20 to 3/8"-16 adapter.

The watch is water resistant and features a silicon wristband. It offers three hours of autonomy. You can actually incorporate up to 16 separate watches, each one worn by a separate person, and all 16 can be linked to one robot. In such a scenario, the last one to press record is the one who'll be filmed. You can also incorporate up to 16 robots to film from different angles. The 16 robots can film a maximum of 3 watches at one time, meaning that several robots will have to film the same watch, but the advantage is that you'll have them at different angles.

Rechargeable batteries are included for the robot, watch, and micro-beacons. The robot runs for 4 hours on a single charge, and the watch and micro-beacons run for 3 hours each. The robot and micro-beacons can also be plugged into wall sockets as a solution for filming all day long. And you can keep them all in the same places for as long as you want, even months and years.

Some additional things to know: the robot's tilt angle can be set before filming; although DSLRs are compatible, many do not have autofocus in video mode, so you might end up with blurry video; the entire system can also be used to live stream the recordings if your camera allows live streaming, and if it doesn't, you simply need to connect a livestream system.

Pretty cool

I am using this camera to film me teaching my yoga classes while I have online and in-studio classes. It can follow me around the room. I should have purchased the mobile one but this works great. It follows me around the studio with an iPad mini attached on the Pixio and it follows me around.

I purchased this unit to film my daughter in soccer and my son in hockey. The product was delivered on time and in perfect condition. I took it out of the box, watch the setup video and started filming. It literally took me 5 minutes to get going. The Move N See works great both indoor and outdoor. Definitely recommend this product and already have to many other parents. Buy one, you won't be disappointed.

Mostly good

The unit works pretty well and easily once you get the hang of positioning the beacons. My only complaint is the beacons come with very flimsy flexible tripods that broke in the first few uses. They are important for positioning the beacons so needed. I am waiting to get them replaced by the company but have decided that I will get better sturdier ones as extras because they are not expensive and I figure they may break again. I will be using it a lot.

Great product

I got this for a client who wants to live stream his teaching. It is not a smooth pan half the time and is never a smooth zoom. This is just for a teaching tho so its ok if you dont want to pay a camera man or employee to be there at every class.

I purchased this to help our church while streaming our services. So far everything is working perfectly. I’m having a slight issue with the blue tooth connection for remote use (hence the 4 stars) but otherwise this product is just what I was looking for.

I’m so excited!

The staff person at B&H who helped me was very knowledgeable, patiently answered all of my questions, and obviously had experience with the equipment in the inventory. All products arrived quickly and as specified. The Pixio users group is a great resource for problem solving any issues with set up. I’m super pleased! It will work as I envisioned it!

question

Can I leave pixio and micro beacons plugged in for a permanent filming locations?
Asked by: Anonymous
You can set the Pixio and beacons up in a permanent location. I would not advise you to keep these units constantly plugged in. Doing so may damage your batteries, I would suggest plugging in the beacons and robot in only when they needed to be charged.

If the beacons and robot are permanently installed in a room and have been centered once do you have to center them every time you power off and back on?
Asked by: Jonathan
Once your beacons and robot are setup for one location, you will not have to center the units again. You will only need to center the units once the robot and beacons are moved to a different location.

Can the watch be carried in a pocket? Does it have to be visible to the camera/beacons?
Asked by: Chris
I used the unit in a hotel ballroom and slipped the received into the speaker's pocket (shirt pocket) and it worked well, Note - I had the unit relatively close to the speaker (25 feet) who was quite actively walking around during his presentation. There was a point during the presentation when the speak walked into an adjacent room for a breakout session and the camera followed him through the (foldable) wall at a distance of about 70 feet - through the wall. I stood in the doorway with a mobile camera and when I was editing in post notices that the PIXIO was following tracking him as I was. Not suggesting this is of any use - but it was interesting.

How well is the tracking when zoomed in at 15x? The angle change on the camera head will be very slight, but needs to keep the speaker centered.

The tracking will work much better with a wide angle as opposed to zoomed in to that degree.
