The second generation of PDMovie's wireless lens control has arrived!
PDMovie wanted to create an innovative wireless follow focus. In order to achieve its distinctive design, they incorporated the high quality and delicate touchscreen of IOS devices. To have the most rapid response system, Apple IOS system was undoubtedly the best choice, it can achieve the desired perfect result. For maximum convenience the Remote Air Pro motor and receiver are combined into a single unit, reducing the use of cables. The new brushless motor has been imported from Germany. With high speed and torque, the noise is barely audible. A full range of advanced technology achievements produce the most outstanding performance to date for the Remote Air Pro.
The design has been developed but the simplicity of the PDMovie remote air first generation still remains
Extreme simplicity is what PDMovie adhere to in terms of design at PDMovie. A unibody concept is used to gain the sleekest of designs with the Remote Air Pro, not a single screw can be seen on the remote control body resulting in a true sense of comfort and style.
High-precision Brushless Motor
The new German imported, high-precision brushless motor runs smoothly even at high speed rotation, scarcely making a sound. It is PDMovies most professional standard motor. Due to the fine internal structure, the controller motor accommodates both receiver and driver, making it lighter, thinner and as compact as possible.
The new Remote Air Pro is built to withstand harsh environments, including extreme weather, severe shaking and long-term operation. With the use of the new aviation locking plugs it can maintain the stability and safety of performance for a long time, the cable is designed for power and signal transmission for Convenience.
Two types of Motor available.
The Remote Air Pro offers two kinds of motor. Only one motor/receiver is required for single channel use and the standard motors can be added for dual and triple channel use. The controller motor - State of the art brushless motor, with a built in receiver, reduces size and weight. The standard motor - suitable for focus, zoom or iris control. The cable powers and transmits from the controller to the standard motor, by daisy chaining the motors you can have unlimited in series connections and giving you unlimited channels, making this wireless follow focus ideal for 3D filming operation where everything needs to be doubled.
Lighter, thinner and more robust.
PDMovies have controlled the weight of the motor, weighing a modest 170g. That’s 430g lighter compared to the 1st generation EF motor and 600g lighter compared to the max motor. The high torque, robust motor, much stronger than previous designs, can operate any lens on the market from affordable stills lenses to high-end cine lenses.
It is PDMovies thinnest, lightest motor ever. Using high-end brushless motors for a silent and accurate result, perfect for gimbal and Steadicam work thanks to its low-profile design measuring only 19mm thin.
Long battery life
The Remote Air Pro controller has a built-in large capacity battery which can last for up to 60 hours at a time. An added feature includes the ability to use a mobile power supply when your power is low. The controller also has the ability to charge your IOS device, when the controller is low on battery it will cease to charge your device but continue to operate. These features were designed for the operator’s peace of mind.
Remote Air Pro Compatibility
The remote is compatible with iPhone 6/6s, 6 Plus, iPod touch, or iPad to operate, in order to use a different model of mobile phone all you need is to replace a small accessory clamp.
Fine sensitivity for highly precise and accurate focus pulling The new Remote Air Pro controller hand wheel has a resolution of 7200 compared to first generation which has a resolution of 500 making it 13.4 times more precise. It offers fine sensitivity for highly precise and accurate focus pulling, a slight rotation can be clearly displayed on the OLED screen, and even the subtlest of twists will be recognised.
Convenient Lens data preservation and updating The Remote Air App has a large database of lens parameters which is constantly being updated, a vast number of stills and cine lenses are available for your reference and convenience.
Accessible from your account on different IOS systems enabling you to back up and share your lenses to the database.
Faster wireless connectivity, more stable signal transmission Through the App, your iPhone is connected to the controller through Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology, and the controller is connected with the controller motor through the 2.4GHZ wireless technology and the full duplex mode.
As a result the signal is constant, without delay, supporting a transmission distance of up to 100M.
Hardware and Software Interaction
The design allows for a comfortable experience. The system has two methods to drive the motor, by using the rotary control hand wheel or by using the touchscreen interface on your IOS device.
The new APP interface eliminates human error as you can mark the lens parameters directly on the
APP for complete precision. There is also the option for a more traditional approach with the luminous marker ring to mark your lens points.
2D, 3D also apply
Remote Air Pro not only can control each channel separately, and also can be used to switch the two motors to the same channel as the 3D synchronization.
Future, unlimited expansion, unlimited potential
To make the Remote Air Pro unparalleled in quality PDMovies have achieved improved hardware capabilities, added custom pre-sets, reduced side and weight whilst still maintaining maximum strength and durability. Future updates will be available for the firmware. Experience the potential of the Remote Air Pro!
