The Teradek RT MK3.1 Wireless Lens Control Kit with 4-Axis Transmitter is a professional system for controlling cinema lenses. This kit is based off a 4-axis MK3.1 transmitter hand controller, a 3-channel MK3.1 receiver motor driver, and a single MK3.1 lens control motor. This kit is all-inclusive for a single-motor setup, as it includes all necessary cables to connect the equipment. Extra motors and drive cables can be purchased as necessary to expand the kit. All that is required is a 10-17V DC power source (such as a D-Tap from a battery) for the receiver. When you're done with your shoot, the equipment can be packed away inside the included hard case for protection during transport and storage. See below for more information on the items included in this kit.
Teradek RT MK3.1 4-Axis Wireless Lens Controller
Teradek's RT MK3.1 4-Axis Wireless Controller enables you to regulate up to four lens motors, or other controls such as 3D functions (receiver and motors available separately). This controller offers a large focus knob, one slider control, and two side knobs (A and B). Each input on the versatile MK3.1 Controller can be mapped to any lens axis (focus, iris, zoom, or 3D function) as you prefer. In addition to F/I/Z control, the MK3.1 system enables you to remotely start/stop select HD cameras such as ARRI, Blackmagic, Phantom Flex, RED, Sony, and LANC-compatible models.
Navigate the MK3.1 Controller's menu using its push buttons, and view your settings on the OLED screen display. Automatic and manual calibration options combine with a large, adjustable fluid-feel knob to provide lens-friendly adjustments. The lightweight MK3.1 system features 42 selectable channels, 16-bit transmission up to 0.9 miles, and minimal latency of 2 ms. Wired operation is supported for locations like medical facilities where RF transmission is not allowed.
Constructed from aerospace-grade aluminum, the MK3.1 Controller is designed with internal antennas to lessen the possibility of damage. A lanyard-mounting point, and three 1/4"-20 mounts provide options for safely securing the controller when you need to free your hands for other tasks. The MK3.1 Controller is powered using widely available Canon LP-E6 batteries, providing a runtime of up to 36 hours. The MK3.1 can also be powered via USB, after removing the spent LP-E6 battery.
