Mark Roberts Motion Control Pan/Tilt head, 2 Meter monorail slider, and FLAIR Software **installed on Dell Laptop (included)

SFH-30 Pan/Tilt Head
The SFH-30 pan tilt head has been designed to provide precision and accuracy not normally found on similar sized heads, making it suitable for a much wider range of applications. Precise enough to be completely pixel accurate with HD and super-HD cameras, compact and lightweight to be used on any location for that perfect time-lapse shot and strong enough to take a wide range of cameras and lenses, the SFH-30 offers a huge scope. When combined with our Academy Award winning Flair software, it delivers features for every occasion, from Virtual Studio interfacing, to animation, time-lapse, timecode triggering, GPI, GPO and of course the head is fast enough to be usable for some live action too.

Monorail Slider
There are many different dolly & track options for the lightweight heads, such as the SFH-30 and SFH-50, depending on the requirements, but one of the best is the Monorail. The monorail consist of a lightweight 2? square aluminum extrusion with the same ultra-strong ball-bearing rail as used by the large MRMC rigs. This allows the rails to be used in very narrow spaces and with excellent accuracy, The rail can be used for animation, timelapse or real-time live-action filming. It can be used horizontally overslung or underslung (hanging from the ceiling) or even at angles to give some lift. The rails have feet with leveling adjustment for using directly on the floor or table close to the surface or the rail can be mounted onto adjustable tripods. The rail can be extended as long as required. Each section is typically 2-3 metres long but as many sections as required can be joined.

FLAIR Motion Control Software
The FLAIR Motion Control System is a software package designed and built to control camera robots.
The heart of the computer system is a specialized processor board which is specially developed to allow high speed communication between it and other axis cards distributed through the robot which each axis card controlling one or more motors (axes). This distributed control feature has been fully utilized in FLAIR to simplify the wiring and allow the move generation and positional control of the motors to be shared between many processors.
Typically each axis card directly handles the positional control of 4 motors (although there are cards with more axes), using computerized motor control methods, and so frees up the main processor to handle complex move generation and manipulation.If more motors are needed, more axis cards are added and in this way an 8 motor system can easily become a 16 motor system, or a 32 motor system or bigger. The main processor holds all of the move data and does the move generation and this data is presented to the user via a PC. The program that runs on the PC is Windows based, presenting the user with a simple graphical means of move entry, manipulation and execution.
Moves are entered via the PC screen which utilizes the most familiar method of move entry, as a series of keyframes, each one stating a set of specific motor positions at a specific time. Moves can have only 2 keyframes, or 40 or more. To execute a simple move, the user drives the system around to the different positions he wants to move it to, storing each as a keyframe (or waypoint) with a frame count for each position. Once all positions have been entered, the move can be executed, and the motors will run from the start position to the end position, passing through each intermediate position at the stated time.
This is the simplest form of move entry, and the program has many features that allow complete move manipulation from adjusting the overall length of the move, to manipulating the positions of one or more axes via 2D and 3D graphic displays, as well as changing the accelerations and decelerations of axes independently.
