Remote Head

The U4-J is a mid-sized remote head, primarily designed for LANC controlled cameras like the JVC GY-HM600 and GY-HM650. It has a LANC output to control the camera and the extended LANC commands as installed from August 2015.

The U4-J is quiet, smooth and can do both live action moves and preset positions, together with camera and lens control using the LANC output and BRADLEY standard controllers. A slip ring option is also available for continouous 360 degree pans.

Fully proportional joystick control enables moves from 90 degrees/sec to 0.02 degrees/sec or less. This gives smooth moves, even with long lenses. The preset positions are achieved quickly and with accuracy of better than 0.5 degrees.

Clutches are fitted on both axes to aid rigging and protect the servo gearboxes from damage. The tilt clutch is externally adjustable to aid camera balancing and has a hollow shaft to allow cable routing. The unit can be C of G balanced for perfect control.

A number of joystick controllers are available from BR Remote together with  various data routing options for multi camera control. Each U4-J can be set to a different camera number with up to 99 cameras on a single system.
