The MõVI Controller from Freefly Systems is purpose-built to provide for a true two user MõVI stabiliser set up by letting a second operator control pan, tilt, roll, focus, iris, and zoom of a MõVI-mounted camera, while the first operator holds the system. The MõVI Controller can be utilised on the MõVI M5, M10 and the soon to be released M15 stabilisers.
Freefly Systems’ engineers built the MõVI Controller with a slew of asked-for features. An ergonomic joystick delivers tactile feedback, allowing smooth and accurate control. The new Controller provides access to MõVI configuration settings, and features assignable buttons and knobs offering the ability to customise the Controller to an individual operator’s working style.
In addition to sending control information to the MõVI stabiliser, the Controller receives and displays information from the stabiliser, such as whether it is locked into GPS control and also displays how many satellites to which the MõVI is locked.
The Controller is built with full carbon fibre construction for durability. In addition to its precision joystick, the controller has a high resolution focus knob, zoom control rocker and a Shutter/Record start-stop button.
It features a long-range wireless link (1,200 feet) and delivers realtime telemetry from the MõVI stabiliser. It is designed with hard points for mounting a monitor and accessories, and can be powered by V-Mount batteries or by Freefly Systems’ AC power adapter. The Controller Includes a 5V USB power output, tripod mount and neck strap for mobile operation.
