The kit includes a CTRL.1 wireless lens controller, Latitude MDR-M wireless receiver, MOTR.X super-speed brushless lens motor, LP-E6 battery and charger, 19/15mm rod clamp, one iris overlay mapping disk, five focus overlay mapping disks calibrated in meters, one extra white marking disk for the controller, and a controller neck strap, as well as motor, controller, USB, and D-Tap cables. A vinyl zipper bag is included for your accessories, and a hard-shell case with custom foam is also included to carry the entire kit.
Connect the 0.8 MOD lens gear motor to your lens, mount it on a 19 or 15mm rod system, and then connect the wireless receiver to the motor using the included cables.

The CTRL.1 controller can then connect and finely control either the focus, iris, or zoom from up to 5000' away. It is powered by the included LP-E6 battery, and can also connect to the motor with the included controller cable for a wired setup. The overlay marking disks are automatically calibrated in meters with the included lens mapping firmware license, and an extra white disk is included for manual marking in addition to the one preinstalled on the CTRL.1.

Teradek RT Latitude MDR-M Receiver (1-2 Axis)
The mini RT MDR-M 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-M'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-M 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-M 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-M 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.

Teradek RT CTRL.1 Single-Axis Wireless Lens Controller
For precise lens control with your Teradek RT motors and receivers, the Teradek RT CTRL.1 Single-Axis Wireless Lens Controller can control focus, iris, or zoom with ease.

Optional features include a lens mapping firmware update to utilize separately available, pre-marked focus or iris rings for quick autocalibration when switching lenses during a shoot.
