Operator commands are precisely conveyed from the controller across a distance of up to 2500' (762m) to the head. You can also program the motion limits and achieve servo tuning of the motors via the remote console.
Serial and Analog lens control coupled with zoom compensation for high-quality and smooth shots at telephoto is available for Fujinon, Canon, and Preston lenses. You can leverage the high rigidity of the digital motion control system to achieve accurate and smooth motion of long lenses.
