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-SK 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 3-channel Latitude sidekick receiver which integrates into RED DSMC2 camera bodies. 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. 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-SK SIDEKICK Interface for Red DSMC2 Cameras (3 Axis)

    The slim RT Latitude MDR-SK SIDEKICK Interface from Teradek is a component of the Latitude lens control system. Sandwiched between the SIDEKICK and your DSMC2 camera, this unit provides an array of input and output ports for various control devices. Use the MDR-SK with the RT MK3.1 wireless controller to drive up to three RT MK3.1 lens motors. Or attach up to two Slave Controllers like the RT Thumbwheel, Zoomrocker, or Smartknob to the MDR-SK's two accessory inputs.

    Data passes through the MDR-SK module so your SIDEKICK unit functions normally. This interface attaches to your RED DSCM2 camera and can be topped with either the RED SIDEKICK control, a RED cheeseplate, or a blank plate.

    * The MDR-SK interface requires more power than the RED BRAIN can supply via the SIDEKICK port, and must be powered via the External Power port and Control cables.

    * The MDR-SK does not have WiFi built in, as it is designed for use with DSMC2 cameras with integral WiFi.

    * Although the RED SIDEKICK remains fully functional, use of the RED DSMC2 SIDE HANDLE is not supported due to physical warranty concerns.

    • Control up to three focus, iris, or zoom functions
    • Compatible with RT MK3.1 controllers and motors
    • Passes data through, and maintains SIDEKICK functions
    • Supports RT Smartknob, Zoomrocker, and Thumbwheel controls
    • Lightweight aluminum unit fits between the RED SIDEKICK and a DSCM2 camera
    • Three 2-pin LEMO power output ports for accessories
