The Movi is a camera stabilization system that uses three motors and an IMU to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll. In particular, it works to compensate for handshake or vehicle-induced vibration as well as reduce translation.
The system supports single- or dual-operator control. In single user (Majestic) mode, the system's software intelligently differentiates unwanted shake or vibration from intentional movement, such as panning, while keeping the horizon level. Alternatively, you can have a dedicated operator (Stabilized Slew mode) with a remote control or RC transmitter who is in charge of camera pan, tilt--and if you want--roll. In this configuration, the camera will always point where the operator of the remote tells it to, independent of how the rig operator moves.
The MoVI M15 is designed to support payloads up to 15 pounds, making it suitable for professional cinema cameras with cinema lenses, as well as smaller DSLR cameras. Camera’s I worked with are the Alexa Mini, Sony F5/F55, RED Epic/Scarlet, Canon C500/C300/C100, Sony FS700 (with limited choice of lenses), and the Blackmagic Cinema Camera / Production Camera 4K.
In association with Broadcast Rentals Hilversum we made a special setup for the movi.
This allows us to use the movi for live television.
