Our custom encoded pan bars behave just like an expensive fluid head, allowing broadcast operators, sports cameramen, and videographers to move the CP Jr with confidence and precision. User-adjustable control parameters offer an incredibly dynamic range of seamless pan/tilt/zoom/focus operability. The Cinema Pro Jr borrows heavily from the acclaimed Cinema Pro master motion control system, and although it’s scaled down about 35% in most respects, the CP Jr’s baseline performance is remarkably close to that of its big brother. At only 13 pounds, the Cinema Pro Jr is ideal for jib and remote field applications, and its superior programming capability and rock-solid electromechanical performance make it a perfect upgrade for the low-tech heads found on most jib systems. The CP Jr sets up quickly with no twisting wires or tedious balancing process, and it’s capable of extremely precise, repeatable movements at any speed. The CP Jr also performs extremely well as a high speed fixed-mount head, a live broadcasting remote camera station, or a feature-film quality motion control system for small to mid-scale productions.
Incorporating such high-end features as precision enclosed drivetrain, pan slip ring, recordable/repeatable motion control, built-in zoom/focus control, soft limits, and full parametric motion control settings, the Cinema Pro Jr represents a new standard for lightweight, cost-effective pan & tilt motion control heads. Adding to its appeal is the seamless upgrade path for increased programming capability, multiple control input options, and compatibility with an array of existing Cinema Pro accessories. The Cinema Pro Jr is precision-made yet rugged and becoming the logical and affordable choice for a much broader scope of users than any head on the market. Cost effective not only for big budget motion pictures, but for worship facilities, sports, concerts, newsrooms,military,government, and other film, video, and HD applications.
Proudly Made in the USA, the CP Jr is constructed from body sections that are CNC machined from solid billet to exacting standards, so rigidity and structural integrity are second to none. The custom slip rings and robust motor drives are designed and tested intensively to perform flawlessly under the most demanding conditions, and the electronics & software have years of field testing behind them. Add to all this the painstaking assembly and QC done in our state-of-the-art facility, and you’ve got a motion control head of the highest caliber.

I used the CinemaPro JR with wheels on my last feature. We had an Alexa Plus on it and it held the weight just fine. I want my own some day.

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.

We love the Cinemapro Jr. When we need something really steady that’s complicated to get with a fluid head, it’s perfect. Works great for being in the cab of a chase vehicle.
