A one-box solution to control 13 EOS stills cameras providing 13 power supplies, 13 opto-isolated focus/shutter triggers, and a 13 way USB3 hub. It has turned 15 boxes and 54 cables into 1 box and 14 cables.
We have made over 460 of these boxes - control for almost 6000 cameras.
Sequence Control Processors (for Clear Angle Studios):
We designed automatic multiple exposure processors to allow various different types of "chase firing". Unique identities for different placement of cameras & flashes has been used. We can now dial-in a variety of sequences. A 5-sequence shoot is completed in approx 0.7s (>169 photos involving high resolution Canon SLR cameras - all used in each of the 5 shots). We believe a competitor manages this in around 7 seconds, so we manage this in 1/10th of the time.
A number of control sequences to be simply dialled in on a knob, and the entire set of cameras then follow the set sequence. It can also control Sony cameras in a geodesic dome (also designed by us) to complete 28 shots per camera x 30 cameras (with specific flashes per sequence) in approx 3 seconds (approx 16fps stils), returnng around 50GB of data. We have produced >1000 of these boxes.
Full body, & head capture frames & control systems: As well as "Dorothy", we also designed "Manfred" and "Jean Claude Van Scan" for them, amongst other systems. See their site for pictures of them in their full glory. For more information, please visit www.clearanglestudios.co.uk/services/
Remote Head Control System - complete head/desk control with 3 x RS482/232 isolated comms channels each end, and CAN control of motor drives, Canon/Fujinon lens control.
Helicopter Power Monitor - provides readouts of system voltage, current use, and running time (middle left & right pictures). It also displays the minimum voltage level reached, and the maximum current draw reached since switch-on (for further information, please contact Aerospace Design Facilities).
Helicopter Generator Failure Power Control - We have recently undertaken the redesign of a power switching unit (for Aerospace Design Facilities / AS Aero) which will switch off non-critical power systems in the event of a generator failure.
