PDMOVIE PD2-M3 Overview

The ikan PD Movie Remote Air 4 Three-Motor Wireless System follows in the PD Movie family of wireless lens controllers and motors. It includes a single wireless receiving motor and two wired motors. Each motor comes equipped with a 0.8 MOD drive gear. The wireless motor has a built-in wireless antenna and power port, while the wired motors are daisy-chainable with the wireless motor. The calibration procedure has been improved allowing you to calibrate lenses with or without hard stops.

The Remote Air 4 includes two controllers, one that uses Wi-Fi and has a 328' range, and the other that uses Bluetooth and has a 33' range. The system supports 20 channels, so you can find clean communication between controller and motor even when using multiple motors in an FIZ (focus, iris, zoom) setup.

PDMOVIE Remote Air 4 Single Motor Wireless Lens Control Kit (PD Movie)

The Remote Air 4 Single Motor Wireless Lens Control Kit is in the PD Movie family of wireless lens controllers and motors. It includes a single wireless receiving motor, and it comes with two different handwheels: one for Wi-Fi with a 328' range, and the other for Bluetooth with a more modest 33' range. The system supports 19 channels, so you can find clean communication between controller and motor, even when using multiple motors in a FIZ (focus, iris, zoom) setup.

The included motor is a receiver motor, that has a built-in wireless antenna and power port. This motor features a cine-style drive gear with 0.8 MOD and can drive either focus, iris, or zoom on a lens with cine-style gears. If you need to drive more than one lens ring, you will need an additional motor, but you can use one without the wireless receiver as you can daisy chain motors together. The calibration procedure has been simplified and you can calibrate lenses with or without hardstops. Built-in OLED screens on the motor and handwheel provide clear information on the state of your system. The motor is designed and built in Germany

Fourth Generation

The PD2-M series is the fourth generation of the PD Movie Remote Air. The motors have been redesigned inside and out for enhanced performance. The Remote Air 4 also comes with two controllers providing flexibility for working with different shooting scenarios

Motor Improvements

  • The Remote Air motor is 0.67" thick, down from the previous generation's 0.75"
  • It also has twice the amount of torque of the previous motor
  • The motor also has 8192 DPI (steps of resolution), which is significantly higher than the previous versions 1920 DPI, this provides the motor with increased accuracy
  • The receiver motor's OLED screen has been moved to the side for easier viewing. It can display the signal channel, signal strength, and the controller's battery information
  • Motor Power

    The new MOTOR AIR supports 7 to 20V input voltage, which means that the MOTOR AIR can now be used with a 7.2V power supply

    Bluetooth 4.0

    The controller adds the master and slave mode, brand new design for motor and perfect function

    Right- and Left-Hand Control

    The Remote Air 4 controller includes a function that allows the operator to change the orientation of the hand wheel at any time

    2.4G Wireless

    The Remote Air 4 utilizes 2.4G wireless technology and full duplex signal transmission to transmit and receive data quickly. While movement is registered on the controller, the motor is simultaneously transmitting position data to accurately reflect movement and positioning in a fraction of a second. Anti-interference and error correction functions are in place to keep controllers and motors connected and communicating at a distance of up to 100m

    Multiple Controllers

    The PD2-M series includes the PDL-TC-AF thumb controller as an alternative to the full-sized Handwheel

    Single Button Function Select

    The Remote Air 4 motor allows you to easily access all the functions with only one button

    Calibration

    You can calibrate your lens manually or automatically, adjust the lens speed from slow to medium or fast, change the motor direction, cancel the calibration, and recover the calibration

    Long Battery Life

    The Remote Air 4 controller has an integrated, high-capacity battery that can last up to 30 hours on a single charge

    Stereo Shooting

    The Remote Air 4 can control up to three motors by itself, but can also be adapted for 3D shooting by assigning multiple motors to the same channel
