ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4
ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 Overview:
3 Axis Lens Control
The ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 is an advanced 3-axis motor controller. Up to three different hand units can connect to the ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 at the same time, controlling focus, iris and zoom on any camera. The intuitive user interface helps to quickly set up the system and makes it easy to use. The high-quality outdoor antenna offers improved durability and reliable radio connectivity.
The ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 incorporates the LDS Lens Data Archive and generates frame-accurate lens data with any lens. Lens data is used for lens mapping to pre-marked focus rings and depth-of-field display on the ARRI Wireless Compact Unit WCU-4. It also enables focus tracking – setting the focus motor to continuously follow a subject by using an ultrasonic distance measurer. For VFX tasks in the post, the ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 records lens data with timecode, helping match the virtual lens to the recorded image.
The ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 supports internal and external timecode that is recorded with frame-accurate lens data onto SD card, making the lens data usable for postproduction. The internal timecode clock can be jam-synced from external devices but can output LTC timecode as well.
The ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 includes multiple interfaces for maximum flexibility on set. Two serial interfaces connect peripheral equipment such as ARRI’s UDM-1 Distance Measure or motion control systems. Optional connector modules interface directly with focus and zoom demands from Fujifilm and Canon. An Ethernet connector integrates the ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 with standard IT equipment, allowing Ethernet-based system control and remote access to the lens data files on SD card.
Exceptional Quality and Service
The ARRI Universal Motor Controller UMC-4 is splash-proof and embodies the reliability and durability for which ARRI is famous. The worldwide ARRI Service network ensures rapid second level support if needed. New firmware versions can be installed to the unit via SD card within seconds.
