Description Specifications Product Support
Now available - Stabilization / Backpan upgrade.Designed and built by Academy Award winning motion picture engineers, the Cinema Pro has been chosen by DPs and producers around the world for its smoothness, stability, and versatile feature set. In production for many years now, the Cinema Pro is extremely reliable, easy to set up and operate, and capable of imperceptibly slow or lightning fast moves with no sacrifice in stability. With an impressive set of standard features and a proud pedigree, it outperforms the competition at a fraction of the price and works with a huge range of film and video cameras.

The Cinema Pro-K2 pan bars kit is popular with broadcast operators, sports cameramen, and videographers. The pan bars are great for tracking shots and easier to learn than the hand wheels, so those relatively new to motion control often gravitate toward the pan bars option. The pan bars offer scalable speed so the head's range of motion can be customized relative to the motion of the pan bars. The zoom & focus hand controls on the pan bars enable seamless single-operator remote camera control. The pan bars are slaved to the advanced console, which features a superb 3-axis joystick with customizable response for pan/tilt/zoom, oversize control knobs for focus and menu adjustment, backlit keypad, and a whole host of parametric menu settings and interface options. The system is compatible with virtual set software, motion data import/export, and is capable of controlling servo lenses directly or can be integrated seamlessly with our TOC external lens drive motor system.

The Cinema Pro is used on a regular basis by crane & jib operators, visual effects studios, sports & racing productions, and feature film crews worldwide. Available with a wide array of options for camera control, mounting hardware, and even wireless up to 1 mile, the Cinema Pro is the ultimate in affordable true motion control heads, with superb mechanical stability and frame-accurate, recordable 5-channel control for absolutely precise repeatable motion control sequences. If you have any questions, please email or call us, or you can visit one of our demo/rental outlets for a hands-on experience.

I really like the small form factor of the VariZoom CinemaPro... I also really like how easy the Cinema Pro system is to set up.

Customer Reviews

When we began our search for a high end motion control system to put atop our camera boom we found VariZoom / MocoDyne Cinema Pro series to offer the largest feature set that was fully expandable and high performance. We purchased the Cinema Pro Head, the encoded Pan Bars, and more recently added the Jib Stick. We plan on additionally purchasing the Cinema wheels as we can cover all aspects of production with this full featured system.
