NAB 2016: Movcam demonstrates its autofocus and control systems

Matt Allard talks to James from 16×9 about Movcam’s auto focus tape measuring system and three-channel multi-control system. The autofocus system features a laser sensor rather than a traditional sonar that will track a subject or objects within a preset range. The three-channel system is made up of a hand unit for manual control, three motors, cables and the driver unit.


The two systems can be paired to work together, or override the other, depending on your set up. Or the autofocus system can also work independently by plugging the focus motor directly in rather than through the control system. There’s also an ET tracking unit, which can be placed on a subject to maintain focus, even when other objects move in front of the beam.


Available early next month, the three-channel system is priced around $10,900 US, while the autofocus system is priced around $7,000 US with the motor, or around $5,500 US for just the main components to attach to any Movcam wireless system.
