DIGITAL CONTROL CENTER

The Digital Control Center (DCC) represents the latest innovation of the Kessler motion control product offering. Similar in concept to the previous generation of analog controller, Oracle, the DCC brings real-time manual control via a joystick to CineDrive.

The DCC can control up to 6 axes, 3 of them simultaneously and all 6 via a toggle button. Whether controlling CineDrive completely manually or interacting with specific axes within an autonomous move, the DCC provides flexibility in control for various shooting environments. One great example of this is that users can now manually pull focus during a pre-programmed move, thus allowing operators to more organically interact with the subjects they are filming.

Future integration with Second Shooter will soon bring multi-axis manual control to Second Shooter providing even greater value to an already best-in-class motion control system.

 
 
 
 

KEY FRAMES

Setup moves easily with two keyframes and let DCC do the rest. Need to edit? Tweak each key frame independently without having to redo the entire move.

LIVE & LOOPING

Create anything from basic slider shots to unmanned, looping shots for an interview

TIME-LAPSE

Setting up a complex time-lapse has never been so easy. With basic and advanced features, the intricacy of the move is up to you.

 

STOP MOTION

Set up your key frames then simply advance through each position to achieve a flawless end product.

PLAY/RECORD LIVE MOVES

Record up to three fully manual moves that can be saved and played back. 

RESPONSIVE CONTROL

Users can customize the DCC’s settings such as speed, damping and deadband controls to fine tune to the specific needs of the shooter and their rig.

 

MULTIPLE AXES

The DCC allows users to control up to 3 axes simultaneously and can manage a total of 6 including pan, tilt, slide, focus, iris and zoom. Users also have the ability to name each axis according to their needs.

KOS INTEGRATION

Leverage the power of kOS and the advantages of manual control with the DCC to perform precise camera movement and set up pre-programmed keyframed moves.

CRUISE CONTROL

When operating via manual control users can utilize the DCC’s cruise control feature to set fixed speeds to ensure consistent camera movement.

 

COMBINED CONTROL

With the DCC users can initiate pre-programmed moves while simultaneously manually controlling specific axis, such as pulling focus during a pre-set 3-axis pan, slide and tilt move.

FUTURE-PROOF

A trademark of our innovative motion control products is continual feature development through periodic firmware updates easily upgradable via the DCC’s USB port.

MAGNALINK MOUNTING

The DCC utilizes the proprietary Magnalink system to keep the controller, batteries and other accessories connected and organized. 

 

FORM AND FUNCTION

 The DCC’s all-aluminum cage is built rock-solid to handle the harshest of environment and has various 1/4-20” and 3/8-16” threaded holes for universal mounting.

FUTURE DEVELOPMENT:

  • Jog Wheels for FIZ control
  • Second Shooter Integration
  • Digital Pan and Tilt Head
