System Components

Overview

The Core and Bridge work together to create a complete Follow Focus and Motion Capture system. Positional data is received and processed by the Bridge and that data is communicated to the Core which in turn controls a lens motor. Designed to be both durable and light weight, an anodized coating balances aesthetics with a scratch and corrosions resistant finish.

Features

Core

  • Control up to 3 motors – focus, iris, zoom. (* note - iOS app supports Focus only)
  • Run/Stop capability when used with the Andra Arc Elite hand unit.
  • Lemo push/pull connectors on all ports.
  • CNC milled 6061 Aluminum for a lightweight and durable chassis
  • Functions as a timecode generator, set to master or slave.
  • User selectable display units – metric or imperial.
  • Motor and Power cable included.

Bridge

  • Up to 8 Packs (32 sensors) can connect at a time via WiFi.
  • Attaches to the back panel of the Core, allowing both units to be mounted using the included ¼ -20 mounting hardware.
  • Lemo push-pull connectors on all ports.

Specifications

Core

  • Powered by a standard d-tap power supply
  • Internal battery back-up - approx. 5 minutes of power
  • Mounts to the camera, or base plate, using the included ¼ -20 mounting hardware.

Core & Bridge

 

Overview

The Andra Radius System maintains focus on objects and subjects by tracking their position within a magnetic field. This field is produced by a cube shaped device known as an Ambit.

Rubberized corners, a lip and groove seal and an internal cradle have been engineered to protect the component from normal production use.

Features

  • Creates an 8’ (2.44m) radius magnetic field.
  • Lemo push/pull power connector.
  • No line of sight needed.
  • Up to 25, in a 5x5 grid, can be used at a time to create a maximum performance area of 48’ x 48’ (14.63m x 14.63m)
  • Flexible grid creation to map out the needed performance area.
  • Up to 100 selectable frequencies, within four channel, allowing up to 4 systems to be used in proximity.

Specifications

  • Mounts to a camera, carried on a boom pole or ambit grid pole, hung overhead or hidden in or behind objects.
  • Dimensions: 11 cm (4.33”) L x 11.19 cm (4.41”) W x 11.19 cm (4.41”) H.
  • Weight: 400g (.88lbs) without mounting plates.
Ambit

 

Overview

Sensor

Sensors are attached to objects and subjects allowing the Andra Radius System to track their position within a performance area with six degrees of freedom (X, Y, Z, pan, tilt, and roll).

Pack

Packs are lightweight wireless transmitters, with removable belt clip, that can accommodate up to four sensors. The combination of multiple sensors, offsets and non - sensored nodes gives the system an unlimited number of focal distances

Up to 8 packs, 4 sensors per pack (32 sensors total) can be used at a time with no degradation in quality.

Features

Sensor

  • Small and lightweight.
  • Attached to a performer using the supplied sensor tape.
  • Sub-centimeter tracking capabilities.
  • Removable cable for easy replacement should the cable be damaged

Pack

  • Up to 4 sensors can be used on a single pack.
  • User selectable pack ID’s, from A-H.
  • Built in re-chargeable battery with a 4-6 hour run time on a single charge.
  • Connect to the Bridge via WiFi.
  • Long range transmitter. (Farther range than the largest performance area)
  • Specialized communication protocol which minimizes latency and maximizes throughput and reliability.

Specifications

Sensor

  • Dimensions: 3.05cm (1.2”) L, 1.85 cm (.73”) W, 1.33 cm (.52”) H
  • Weight: 13.9g (.03lbs)

Pack

  • 4 cm (1.54”) OLED display, can be disabled to eliminate light distortion.
  • Dimensions: 5.80 cm (2.28”) x 9.50 cm (3.35”) x 1.63 cm (.64”)
  • Weight: 105.05g (With the clip installed)
