Ross Video has signed a distribution agreement with Monogram to offer Creative Console as part of the Ross Camera Motion Systems’ range of accessories.
Monogram’s unique modular control surface comprises the Orbiter module, a joystick and trackball alternative, dials, sliders and control buttons that can be organised to best suit the operator.
Each module attaches to the others magnetically, enabling operators to customise an expandable control surface where additional modules can easily be added or removed depending on requirements.
“Ross has often been asked to recommend joysticks and peripherals to control cameras, and it’s true that we’ve struggled to find a solution that has all of the functionality required,” said Karen Walker, VP of Camera Motion Systems at Ross. “Traditional USB or gaming joysticks are compromised because they rarely have a large enough number of dials or control options for cameras. The great thing about Monogram’s solution is that the control surface can be arranged to the exact requirements and preferences of the operator, be they left or right-handed.”
Greg Barber, VP of Partnerships at Monogram, added: “It’s been a rewarding partnership with the Ross Video Robotics team, as we combine various Monogram modular controls and Ross DashBoard functions into a series of optimised and affordable control surface solutions for Ross Camera Motion Systems.”
