With our intuitive 6DOF joystick control, navigating motion bases has never been easier. Filmmakers can effortlessly manipulate movements in all six degrees of freedom, allowing for precise adjustments and creative experimentation.

Customizable Timestamps

In the realm of film production, timing is everything. That's why our motion bases and control systems come equipped with customizable timestamps, giving filmmakers control over their scenes.

Precision Timing: With timestamps, filmmakers can program specific movements to occur at precise moments in the scene. Whether it's a subtle camera pan or a dramatic tilt, every motion can be perfectly synchronized with the action on screen.

Seamless Integration: Our motion bases and control systems seamlessly integrate with existing production workflows, allowing filmmakers to leverage timestamps within their preferred editing and post-production software.

Motion bases and control systems are reshaping the landscape of filmmaking, empowering creators to push the boundaries of imagination. With seamless integration, precise control, and intuitive interfaces, these systems unlock endless possibilities for storytelling in the digital age.

Integration with Matlab Simulink for Enhanced Simulation

Enhance your production capabilities by integrating our motion bases with Matlab Simulink. This allows for advanced simulation and control, ensuring your scenes are executed with scientific precision and creativity.
