At BIRTV in Beijing, Movcam were showing prototypes of a new wireless lens motor called the UM-5. The lens motors have a built-in wireless receiver and they can be daisy-chained together to form a complete wireless FIZ system.
The motors look very similar to the cforce mini RF and they work in a similar way. The Movcam UM-5 can be used in conjunction with the MCS-1 FIZ controller and they also work with Movcam’s DarkTower multi-dimensional wireless transmission system. With DarkTower you can not only send wireless video, but you can also use it as a receiver system if you are running existing Movcam UM-3 and UM-4 motors.
There is very little information about the Movcam UM-5 lens motors at this early stage. We were unable to find out when they might ship or how much they will cost. Hopefully, we will be able to find out more information at IBC next month.
