Ross Video and Monogram agree to distribute Ross Creative Console: a camera motion controller
Ross Video has recently signed a distribution agreement with Monogram that will allow Ross to offer a modular control surface to customers as part of the range of accessories for Ross Camera Motion Systems. It is called Creative Console.
Creative Console is a control surface that comprises different modules – including the Orbiter module, a joystick and trackball alternative, dials, sliders and control buttons – that can be customized. Each module attaches to the others magnetically. “Ross has often been asked to recommend joysticks and peripherals to control cameras,” comments Karen Walker, VP of Camera Motion Systems at Ross, “and it’s true that we’ve struggled to find a solution that has all of the functionality required. The great thing about Monogram’s solution is that the control surface can be arranged to the exact requirements and preferences of the operator, be they left or right-handed. The modules all link together in a very robust manner and additional modules can easily be added or removed as applications, users and use requirements change.”
Greg Barber, VP of Partnerships at Monogram, “it’s been a rewarding partnership with the Ross Video Robotics team, as we combine various Monogram modular controls and Ross DashBoard functions into a series of optimized and affordable control surface solutions for Ross Camera Motion Systems.”
