PDF Manual Download PDF Print  

The Z-Head is a versatile, digitally controlled, remote head, designed to accommodate the latest range of small HDV cameras as well as broadcast remotes. It offers fully proportional pan & tilt moves and has a LANC output to control the functions of the camera. It is simple to rig and operate and fits directly onto a standard 16mm spigot mount.

Using the Z-Head with various types of camera is easily possible and different control protocols can be embedded into the firmware if required.

There are a number of built-in options, which are accessible depending on the controller used and also options which can be specified on order or retrofitted.

A simple, single head joystick has been developed for the Z-Head to offer the essential controls at a modest price. However, any Bradley Engineering controller can control the head
