Universal Compatibility

Use the RTMotion 3.1 system to work with any camera, providing you can provide power to the receiver 'brain' unit with a D-tap cable.

Equally suited to film or DSLR lenses, modern or vintage lenses.

RED Compatibility

Integration with the RED cameras is where the RTMotion comes into its own.

VMI supply the Latitude controller as standard with all RTMotion kits.  This controller is used in place of the universal RTMotion 'brain' unit and will interface with RED EPIC cameras and DSMC1 & DSMC2 bodies and above, such as EPIC, EPIC-W, Weapon etc.  In doing so, this provides additional functionality to the controller.  Specifically, the Latitude module requires your RED camera to be fitted with an EF mount and EF lens and then you can control the focus and iris from the 3.1 series hand unit using the servos built into the lenses without fitting external servos.

What is more, the thumbwheel control (also provided as standard on VMI units) will allow the operator to control his focus locally too.

If you use film lenses, then you will need to use the external servos and the regular RTMotion brain.

Please read VMI's article: WLCS Systems, All you need to know to explore the question of how to choose between the various systems and to introduce the range of WLCS systems which VMI arguably considers the best in their field and explain why we think that they work very well in given scenarios.

FOOLCONTROL

The independently powered Latitude controller (supplied) will allow wireless control of your RED camera using WiFi or up to 1.5Km away using the FOOLCONTROL over RF link.  Full RED control including playback of images and camera setups can be achieved using the FOOLCONTROL iPhone App.

Note that if you need to control the zoom locally, then consider the Preston Microforce Zoom Controller system, though this will not be controllable wirelessly with this system.
