NEW: TED Motorised Electronic Camera Slider
Prosup produced the TED – Tango Electronic Drive which will be introduced at IBC Amsterdam and Cinec in september 2018
The legendary Tango Roller is known for its smooth, vibration-free operation on endlessly extendible track segments. This unsurpassed sliding movement can now be electronically controlled by the Tango Electronic Drive (TED).
Electronic Camera Slider
The multi-functional DynaStick is linked via cable to the TED main unit and masters speed, acceleration, deceleration, end stops and position/move programming. An input for a foot pedal or an external joystick is also built in.
As a guide rail for the motor unit, Prosup chose teh precision of a gear rack for their new TED. The gear rack with its utmost precise toothing is manufactured in-house and works with all existing Tango track lengths. Transitions are seamless and as smooth as the Tango track itself. It obviously also fits all existing Tango camera tracks so that it could be retrofitted to the many units in the field.
The motor and drive unit are mounted off a special 100mm bowl mount. The 24V / 60W brushless motor can easily move 15kg of camera load at top speed. Due to the super precise gear rack of this electronic camera slider the slowest speed can hardly be seen.
To power the unit, standard V mount batteries (10.8V – 30V) can be used. Customized solutions like remote control of the TED, camera link connection of BLE position data outputs are possible.. Of course, the TED can be disengaged at any time, so that you can use your Tango manually.
