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.
PLAY/RECORD LIVE MOVES
Record up to three fully manual moves that can be saved and played back.
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.
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.
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
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.
Set up your key frames then simply advance through each position to achieve a flawless end product.
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.
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.
When operating via manual control users can utilize the DCC’s cruise control feature to set fixed speeds to ensure consistent camera movement.
A trademark of our innovative motion control products is continual feature development through periodic firmware updates easily upgradable via the DCC’s USB port.
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.
