The PD Movie Remote Air Pro 3 Dual-Channel Wireless Follow Focus System includes a single wireless receiving motor, a single slave motor for controlling a second lens function, and a handwheel that integrates focus, zoom, and iris control. The handwheel has a wireless range of 328' and supports 19 wireless channels, allowing you to find the cleanest signal path even when using multiple motors in a FIZ (focus, iris, zoom) setup. An available iOS app allows you to control the system with your iOS device from up to 33' away.

The included receiver motor connects to a power source and receives the wireless control signals. 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. It also provides power and control via an included cable to the slave motor. If you need to drive more than two lens rings, you will need an additional motor. 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.

Mobile App

Remote Air App

The controller and receiver motor have a built-in Bluetooth module. An iPhone i0S APP controls the lens, lens data, and set automated lens movements.

Handwheel Controller

Handwheel

The controller features a 75mm diameter large follow control handwheel, which is more effective when using the palm of your hand to pull focus or when wearing gloves. with four standard 1/4"-20 threads, it can be easily attached to the included handle or mounted on virtually any handle, monitor, or arm.

Focus, Iris, Zoom

The handwheel incorporates a focus controller, a zoom rocker, and an iris rocker, allowing you to simultaneously control up to three axes with the proper number of motors. The focus controller features a built-in LED light and glow-in-the-dark marking disks that allow you to see your custom markings while in low-light situations.

Battery Life

The controller uses a replaceable 600mAh battery, supports hot plug, and features a battery life of 12 hours.

Data Display

The controller and receiver motor both use the same data display mode, and the LED screens are placed so that the data can be easily read.

All-in-One Control Button

The Remote Air Pro 3 features an all-in-one multifunction button. It allows you to quickly set the signal channel, control channel, motor speed, and remote recording.

Remote Run/Stop

The handwheel controller is compatible with RED and ARRI as well as LANC control of your camera's run/stop.

Handwheel Handle

The Remote Air Pro 3 includes a redesigned handle from previous versions. You can now mount and unmount the handwheel from the handle. The handle incorporates nine 1/4"-20 mounting holes that allow you to mount accessories such as a mobile device, monitor, wireless receiver, and lanyard. The handle is made of high-strength aluminum alloy and durable rubber.

Wired or Wireless

If you want to operate the focus controller in wired mode, simply connect the 6-pin motor drive cable from the motor to the controller.

Motor

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 than 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 it can now be used with a 7.2V power supply.
