The Schneider Optics Kino-Torsion MX is designed to hold and deploy your CDA 1.33x and 1.33x M lenses. It represents a clean-sheet-of-paper approach to designing a deployment mechanism for anamorphic lenses and comes with a motorized lens mechanism. The lens is moved in a twisting motion similar to the swing of a door. This motion results in a mechanical design that is elegantly simple yet retains all of the reliability and ruggedness of more traditional linear motion systems.
The Kino-Torsion MX is a light and small high duty-cycle unit. It is appropriate for demanding installations in screening rooms and corporate media centers yet economical enough for home theaters. It has adjustments for displacement, pitch, yaw, and roll so proper lens alignment can be achieved. And, it is designed to be used with Schneider Optics' Cine Digitar anamorphic lenses (sold separately) for a combination of mechanical reliability and optical quality.
This is a suitable device for the deployment of anamorphic lenses to create true 2.35 aspect ratio (Cinemascope) images. With Cine-Digitar anamorphic lenses (sold separately) you can use all the pixels in your full HD 1080p projector, for the high resolution without those annoying black bars.
