Teradek RT MDR overview

  • 1Description

One advantage of using EF-Mount lenses with autofocus is the built-in lens motor. And with the Teradek RT MDR-MB Wireless EF Lens Control Kit with 4-Axis Transmitter for RED you can actuate the focus and iris motors precisely as if it was a cine lens with motors attached. This kit is based off a 4-axis MK3.1 transmitter and a 2-channel battery-powered Latitude receiver motor driver. This kit is all-inclusive as it contains all necessary cables to connect the equipment. Lens motors and drive cables can be purchased as necessary to expand the kit. While the receiver can be powered off an external source, the MDR-MB can be powered off the included LP-E6-type battery, convenient for compact setups. 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.

  • 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.

    Note: This more basic unit does not include the Force Zoom Joystick of the MK3.1/Z model.

  • RT Latitude MDR-MB Receiver (1-2 Axis, with Battery Plate)

    The mini RT MDR-MB Receiver (1-2 Axis) from Teradek is part of the Latitude lens control system operating via both RF (wireless) and WiFi. This receiver's 0.6-mile wireless range is handy for drone use and for when you're operating in harsh RF environments like stadiums. Expanding upon the camera run/stop function of the RT MK3.1, the MDR-MB's WiFi connectivity provides camera control for RED DSMC2/DSMC cameras (with additional cameras to be added via a firmware update). This Latitude receiver is compatible with RT MK3.1 controllers and motors, driving up to two lens motors with functions such as focus, iris, and/or zoom (controller and motors available separately).

    The MDR-MB Receiver's integration with RED provides several options for DSMC2/DSMC lens and camera control. Use the RT MK3.1 wireless controller and RF wireless to control EF lenses via their internal motor; PL lenses can be controlled with the addition of RT Motors. Both the MK3.1 controller and the RT Smartknob can provide shutter, ISO, and button-feature control. RT Thumbwheels can provide focus and iris control, and the Foolcontrol app can be used with a WiFi connection.

    In Transmitter Mode, two MRR-MB units can be paired to extend control up to 0.9 miles away from your camera using WiFi, RF wireless, and the RT Foolcontrol iOS/Android app. Use the Foolcontrol app to a create a versatile interface between the Latitude system and your camera, lens, and smartphone.

    The RT MDR-MB Receiver is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, and is designed with an integrated antenna, lessening the chance of antenna damage. Power this ultra-compact, lightweight receiver via its 7-17V 2-pin LEMO port, or attach a Canon LP-E6 battery to the built-in battery plate.
