Mo-Sys Launches G30 Gyro-Stabilized Head

News Image
Mo-Sys Engineering has announced the launch of its new ground-breaking G30 gyro-stabilized head.

The unique design has been refined using extensive real-world experience resulting in a stabilized head that has the performance of much more expensive systems, but with the usability and ease of setup of much simpler gimbal devices.

Key technologies designed based on early adopter feedback, include:
• Balance assist – smart axis hold feature for significantly faster set-up of camera payloads
• Innovative control console - for fast, accurate operation in the heat of production
• Universal camera cage - to accommodate all practical camera payloads.

The goal of Mo-Sys in designing the G30 was to make a gyro-stabilized head that would meet the needs of any broadcast or movie application; simple setup and operation, minimised complexity by negating sliprings and counter-balance weights, and support for the widest range of camera payloads.

At the heart of the G30 is a unique 45˚ frame geometry, large enough to accommodate any camera rig including large ENG cameras and complete digital cinematography camera rigs. The short, stiff frame provides rigidity for camera payloads up to 30kg, with high-torque direct drive motors for smooth, precise movement along with excellent stabilization. The result is a gyro-stabilized head that has complete freedom of pan and tilt in any configuration, along with ±45˚ roll.

Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys, said: "In conversation with early adopters, the feedback was for simpler operation and faster setup. In response, we modified elements of the design, such as the frame size, but we also took the opportunity to suggest some smart technologies we were developing. These were well received and so were also implemented into the G30 design.

"One of these is the balance assist feature which enables an operator to balance each axis in isolation while the remaining two axes hold the camera, significantly reducing the setup time.

"Another is inertia sensing with pre-sets for various camera packages, along with recallable custom settings for previously used camera packages."
