NAB 2016: Motorized Precision KIRA

I'm here with Sean Brown, the President of Motorized Precision, who is showing off their high-speed, cinematic robot, KIRA. While KIRA is not the only robot like this on the market, it is certainly one of the most advanced and one of the easiest to use.

What sets this system apart from others is, despite being such a technologically advanced product, it can be programmed and controlled as simply as playing a video game - as Sean demonstrates in the video.

KIRA is currently capable of integrating with both RED and Phantom cameras for control, and the 3D PreVIZ system allows for import and export of data to animation software like Maya and C4D. The ten axes of control, including focus, iris, and zoom, allow complete creative control over your takes. Be sure to watch the video above to see KIRA in action.
