The junior 5 is wireless remote motorised dolly on track with a hot head.
The Junior is a wireless compact dolly that can be remotely operated
C-series machines are fully compatible with all render engines and do not need any external tracking system. Mechanical precision and encoder resolution can output position data more precisely than any other external tracking system.
Microfilms systems can track camera position on straight track, curve track and elliptical shaped track (non- linear radius).
The Junior, with track only 2’ wide, can be deployed and easily integrated in all type and size sets.
A telescopic column adds a perfectly stable motorized vertical axis
Precise mechanical engineering and proprietary motor drives allow the junior to embark up to a 160mm lens HDTV lens with perfect stability.
The Junior is compatible with all camera and lens which makes it suitable for television as well as motion picture shoots.
A touch screen user interface allows the operator to gain access to each axis parameter as well as end stops (speed, damping, ramp up and down, user setups back up etc…).
The junior communicates using either wireless link, IP Network or BNC Coax cable (300m). and will run on four camera batteries for 6 hours.
Operator control station may be run on batteries so the complete Junior 5 system can be used without local power.
All Canon, Fujinon, Angenieux and Preston motors digital protocol as well as Sony camera data protocol are integrated into the Junior’s software.
The second monitor integrates a proprietary OSD that allows the operator to position over the PGM video feed all axis position, zoom and focus indexes, advanced functions status
The pan compensator allows the Junior to track smoothly from straight to curve track without affecting the camera direction. When the dolly turns on a curve track, compensation data are sent to the pan motor which turns in the opposite direction.
Access to all parameter speed, damping, ramp up and down, user setups back up and end stops.
All axis position (including zoom and focus) can be memorized and recalled on demand with absolute precision. The operator may recall pre-established shots or reposition the machine rapidly even when out of sight.
