Maxicrane launches a new robotic camera crane

Salt Lake City — Ostrich MK-2 Robotic Crane system consists of one robotic pan & tilt head with Zoom and focuses servos, one adjustable jib arm, a support base, and a touch-screen control that have been developed for daily use in broadcast studios, remote photography, film, live events and so on.

Movements that have been saved can be triggered with just one click or even automatically. New movements are created within minutes and existing ones can be modified easily.

The Ostrich MK-2 can control lens settings as well as camera position and can be used to produce sophisticated time-lapse sequences or camera movements created through a touch screen controller.

The Ostrich MK-2 is versatile and ideal for news studios, music and sports events, film and commercial productions. Maxicrane’s new motion profiles make every camera movement smooth, programmable and repeatable, in addition to capturing precise camera tracking data.

The touchscreen controller, as a standalone single-operator console, can control the pan and tilt of both the jib and the head as well as the zoom and focus of the lens. Also, the controller offers a simple interface for storing and recalling 9 positions and programming 8 keyframes.

Finally, the company states the Ostrich Mk-2 takes only an hour to set up, and since it only weighs 110kg/243lbs, it is easy to transport as well.
