CONTROLLER SPECIFICATIONS Any MōVI M5, M10, or M15 can be configured to work with the MōVI Controller. The MōVI must have firmware version 3.08 or later. The latest MōVI firmware, release notes, and update instructions are available at www.freeflysystems.com Once running firmware v3.08 or later, change the MōVI Radio Type from the default (DSMX 2048) to MōVI Controller. This can be done from any of the Freefly Configurator apps (PC, Mac, Android) in the Remote Controller Config menu. The values of the other parameters in this menu (Map Remote Mode, etc.) do not matter for this Radio Type and can be left at their defaults. After installing the MōVI Controller Receiver (see Receiver Installation section below, or the Quick Start Guide included in the package) and configuring the MōVI Radio Type as above, the MōVI Controller is ready to send commands and recieve data from the MōVI. As the Spektrum DX7/DX8 remote controller, the feel of the joystick can be adjusted from the Remote Operator Config menu. P5

BINDING TO A NEW MōVI CONTROLLER RECEIVER The MōVI Controller comes with a Receiver already bound to it and ready for communication with a MoVI. This MōVI Controller and Receiver form a bound pair. Only that specific MōVI Controller can control that Receiver. However, it is possible to rebind the Receiver to a new MōVI Controller, or bind new Receivers to a single MōVI Controller for working with multiple MōVI systems. Ensure that the MōVI Controller and Receiver are both set to the same channel, or both set to auto-select (Channel 0) Set the channel in Radio Config::Channel on the MōVI Controller. Apply changes with Radio Config::Radio Action::Write. Select the same channel on the Channel Switch at the Receiver. Select a Device Group. Binding is specific to a Device Group; the receiver is joing the chosen group. See Radio Config menu description for more info. Set the Device Group in Radio Config::Device Group. Apply changes with Radio Config::Radio Action::Write. Initiate Bind Mode on the MōVI Controller Receiver. Press and hold the Bind button on the Receiver for at least two seconds. The Status LED will be fast-flashing orange to indicate the Bind Mode is active and it is seeking a MōVI Controller with which to bind. After a few seconds, the Status LED will change to slow-flashing orange to indicate that a MōVI Controller has been detected and the Receiver is requesting permission to bind. A slow-flashing red Status LED at this point indicates that no MōVI Controller was detected. Initiate Bind Mode on the MōVI Controller. Allow the Receiver to bind by starting Bind Mode on the MōVI Controller with Radio Config::Radio Action::Bind. After a few seconds, the Receiver will indicate successful binding with a solid green Status LED. A solid red Status LED indicates a bind failure. Following a bind, the receiver will reset. During this time the Status LED will return to flashing green momentarily as the connection starts. After a few seconds, the MōVI will be connected. The receiver Status LED will return to solid green to indicate that it is receiving control data from the MōVI Controller. The MoVI Controller will display a connection icon () and display MōVI battery voltage in the Status Bar to indicate that is is receiving data from the MōVI. If the bind process fails, try repeating Steps 1-5. For further troubleshooting steps, refer to the Troubleshooting section. P13

BINDING AND DEVICE GROUPS The illustration below shows how a complex network of multiple MōVI Controllers, MoVIs, and Freefly 3-Axis FIZ Receivers* might be configured. Each Device Group can consist of one of more MōVIs (with attached MoVI Controller Receivers) or Freefly 3-Axis FIZ Receivers. This allows a single MōVI Controller to control both the MōVI and the Freefly 3-Axis FIZ Receiver on one radio link. Additionally, the MōVI Controller can bind up to 16 Device Groups. This allows selection from multiple sets of prebound devices. Only one Device Group is active at any given time. Devices in another Device Group will not be controlled, even if they are powered on and have been bound. The Device Group function is similar to "model memory" on an RC transmitter. Arrows indicate binds, which are potential data links for control and telemetry. It is not possible for an unbound MōVI Controller/Receiver pair to communicate. For example, in the illustration below, MōVI Controller Serial Number 0001 cannot control MōVI Serial Number 0003, because they have not bound. Binding is the act of joining a Device Group of one particular MōVI Controller. For example, setting MōVI Controller Serial Number 0003 to Device Group 02 and binding MōVI Serial Number 0005 according to the bind process desribed above causes MōVI Serial Number 0005 to join that Device Group. After that, it can be controlled by MōVI Controller Serial Number 0003 whenever Device Group 02 is selected. P14

POWER DC INPUT: The primary DC input is a 5.5mm O.D., 2.1mm I.D. center-positive barrel jack connecter located on the back of the MōVI Controller. It is designed for a 15V power supply, but will accept voltages from 13V to 20V. It is reverse polarity protected up to 20V. However, supplying more than 20V will result in damage. There are several battery options for powering the MōVI Controller. An optional IDX mounting plate can be fitted, which will supply power to the DC input from standard V-Lock batteries and provides one additional D-Tap output. An optional overcurrent-protected MōVI battery (LiPo) cable is also available. The MōVI Controller will go into low power sleep mode when the battery drains below 13V, but it is still important to turn off the power switch and remove the battery when not in use. 12V DC OUTPUT: When supplied with a 13-20V DC input, the MōVI Controller generates a regulated 12V output for powering auxilaries at up to 3A. The output is a 2-pin LEMO connector with standard polarity. (Pin 1 / red dot / key is positive. Note: This is reversed from the polarity of the Teradek Bolt.) The mating connector is FGG.0B.302.CLAD52. USB: The MōVI Controller USB ports are capable of supplying 5V at up to 2A for powering external devices such as wireless video receivers, tablets, or smartphones. Note: Only the top USB port can be used for powering Apple devices. The MōVI Controller can be powered at 5B through either of its USB ports. When powered by USB, the regulated 12V output will not be active. USB voltage may be noisy and vary significantly from host device to host device. This can cause noise or drift on the joystick axes. Always power the controller through the primary DC input when possible. Refer to the Tx Config menu description for tips on how to detect and remove joystick drift. Note: Powering your MōVI Controller with both DC input and USB simultaneously will not cause any damage. P15

FOLLOW-FOCUS INTEGRATION The MōVI Controller can integrate with wireless follow-focus systems from Redrock Micro and Hocus Products with an optional Auxiliary Transmitter. The Auxiliary Transmitter uses the same hardware as the MōVI Controller Receiver and communicates directly with the follow-focus system. It connects to the Auxiliary Data Port on the MōVI Controller. The range of the Auxiliary Transmitter is similar to that of the primary radio link to the MōVI (approx. 1200ft outdoor/line-of-sight). REDROCK MICRO MICROREMOTE To enable the Auxiliary Transmitter to communicate with a Redrock Micro microRemote Basestation: 1. Set the Auxiliary Transmitter to microRemote Auxiliary Transmitter mode by following the instructions in the Auxiliary Transmitter section. 2. Use the Channel Switch on the Auxiliary Transmitter to set the channel to be the same as that of the microRemote Basestation. This can and should be set to a different channel than the primary radio link to the MōVI to prevent interference. See the channel mapping table in the Radio Config section. 3. Select "microRemote" in FIZ Config::System on the MōVI Controller. Note: Only channels 1 through C are available. Channels 0, D, E, and F are reserved for low-power transmitters. HOCUS PRODUCTS AXIS 1 To enable the Auxiliary Transmitter to communicate with a Hocus Pocus Axis 1 Digital Receiver: 1. Set the Auxiliary Transmitter to Axis 1 Auxiliary Transmitter Mode mode by following the instructions in the Auxiliary Transmitter section. 2. Use the Channel Switch on the Auxiliary Transmitter to set the channel to be the same as that of the Axis 1 Digital Receiver. This can and should be set to a different channel than the primary radio link to the MōVI to prevent interference. See the channel mapping table in the Radio Config section. 3. Select "Axis 1" in FIZ Config::System on the MōVI Controller. Note: Only channels 1 through C are available. Channels 0, D, E, and F are reserved for low-power transmitters. P16

MENU STRUCTURE HOME The home menu is the starting point for navigating through other MōVI Controller menus. You can always return to the Home menu by scrolling to and clicking the Home icon in the top-left corner of the display. TX MONITOR The transmitter (Tx) Monitor menu displays information about the transmitted user inputs. The Pan/Tilt Joystick, Focus Wheel, Zoom Rocker, Iris Knob, Record Button, and other knobs and switches report their position in this menu. This information can be useful for holding consistent pan, tilt, or zoom rates. TX CONFIG User inputs and the MōVI Controller operation can be customized from the Tx Config menu: • TX ACTION: Load, Save, or Restore MōVI Controller Transmitter Configurations Save Tx Configuration to non-volatile (flash) memory from here. SAVE Settings changes not saved before powering down the MōVI Controller will be lost. Load the most recently saved Tx Configuration from non-volatile (flash) memory. This can be useful for undoing changes made since the LOAD last power up. DEFAULT Temporarily restore the default factory Tx Configuration. Save this configuration permenantly using Tx Action::Save as described above. Reset the center point of the Pan/Tilt Joystick and Zoom Rocker. These inputs are zeroed on start-up. Check the center points in the RE-ZERO Tx Monitor men. If pan, tilt, or zoom has more than 1-2% of offset when the joystick and zoom rocker are in their center positions, it can create slow drift of the MōVI. CALIBRATE Re-calibrate the end points of the Focus Knob. See Calibration section for calibration instructions. • MAP ROLL INPUT: Assign an input (Zoom Rocker, Iris Knob, etc.) to control the MōVI Roll Axis • FOCUS DIRECTION: Reverse the direction of the Focus Knob input. • ZOOM DIRECTION: Reverse the direction of the Zoom Rocker input • IRIS DIRECTION: Reverse the direction of the Iris Knob input. • PAN DIRECTION: Reverse the direction of the Pan/Tilt Joystick X-Axis (Pan). The Pan/Tilt Joystick Y-Axis (Tilt) can be reversed using the Tilt Direction Switch. P17

• RECORD TYPE: Change the shutter/record output on the MoVI Controller Receiver. MOMENTARY The Shutter/Record Output is active only while the Record Start/Stop Button is pressed. TOGGLE The Shutter/Record Output switches between active and inactive each time the Record Start/Stop Button is pressed. • RECORD POLARITY: Change the active state of the Shutter/Record Output signal from the MoVI Controller Receiver. NORMAL The Shutter/Record Output is active high (3.3V digital output). REVERSE The Shutter/Record Output active low (0.0V digital output). • USER 3 Function: Assign a function to the USER 3 switch. See User Functions table below. • TILT REV Function: Configure the function of the TILT REV switch center position. NORMAL The Center position is the same as the Up position (TILT FWD). REVERSE The Center position disables the Tilt Axis. • USER 1 Function: Assign a function to the USER 1 knob. See User Function table below. The USER 1 function assignment has priority over USER 2 and USER 3. • USER 2 Function: Assign a function to the USER 2 knob. See User Function table below. The USER 2 function assignment has priority over USER 3. P18

Yes Yes No Disables the dedicated Zoom Speed Knob. 1 When a knob is used to control axis direction, forward is defined as >50% (clockwise) and reverse is defined as <50% (counter clockwise) rotation. • TX MODE: Configure whether the controller responds to physical movement (in Mimic mode), or by controls only. MIMIC Control the MōVI pan, tilt, and (optionally) roll by physically tilting the MōVI Controller. NORMAL Control the MōVI using standard controls (Knobs, Joystick, Zoom Rocker, etc.) • MIMIC MODE: MIMIC Mode allows for intuitive control of the MōVI pan, tilt, and (optionally) roll by physically moving the MōVI Controller. Mount the MōVI Controller to a fluid head tripod for smooth pan bar-like control, or move it in your hands for dynamic yet stable operation. • COMPATIBILITY: MIMIC Mode is available in MōVI Controller firmware v2.0 and later. It is compatible with any MōVI using firmware v4.2 or later. To check the current firmware version of the MōVI Controller, highlight the Home () icon on the Home screen. P19

• SENSOR START-UP MIMIC Mode uses sensors in the MōVI Controller to measure its movement. These sensors are calibrated each time the MōVI Controller is AND RE-ZERO: turned on. The start-up calibration takes approximately five seconds. The MōVI Controller should be kept level and still during this time. If the MōVI Controller was moving during start-up, or if one or more axes drift while using MIMIC Mode, the sensors can be re-zeroed at any time using from the Tx Config menu by selecting Tx Action: Re-zero and pressing the Menu Set button. • ACTIVATING AND MIMIC Mode uses sensors in the MōVI Controller to measure its movement. These sensors are calibrated each time the MōVI Controller is DEACTIVATING turned on. The start-up calibration takes approximately five seconds. The MōVI Controller should be kept level and still during this time. MIMIC MODE: If the MōVI Controller was moving during start-up, or if one or more axes drift while using MIMIC Mode, the sensors can be re-zeroed at any time using from the Tx Config menu by selecting Tx Action: Re-zero and pressing the Menu Set button. • AXIS SCALING MIMIC Mode can translate MōVI Controller movement to the MōVI directly (1:1) or it can scale the movement on each axis. Use the Mimic AND ROLL ENABLE/ Axis Scale values for Roll, Tilt, and Pan to adjust this behavior. Some examples: DISABLE: • Roll is disabled by default (Mimic Roll Scale: 0.0). To enable the roll axis with a direct ratio of 1:1, set the Mimic Roll Scale value 1.0. • Pan and Tilt Scale are set to 1.0 by default, but if the MōVI Controller is mounted on a fluid head tripod, it may be advantageous to use a higher Scale. For example, by setting Tilt Scale: 3.0, the Controller only needs to be tilted 30º up or down to move the MōVI tilt axis up or down by 90º. • JOYSTICK AND TRIM While in MIMIC Mode, the joystick can still be used to reframe, for example to align the camera for the start of a MIMIC Mode shot. To IN MIMIC MODE: disable the joystick input, set the Pan and Tilt Speed knobs to their minimum position. Roll trim buttons are also still active in MIMIC Mode. The USER 1 and USER 2 Knobs can be optionally mapped to Pan and Tilt Trim, to cancel any small movements in these axes. (See the section on Sensor Start-up and Re-zero as well for other ways to cancel axis drift.) P20

MōVI MONITOR Live telemetry from the MōVI is available in this menu. The first line displays MōVI run time since power-up, as well as the status of important MōVI systems: Compass (CMP), Global Positioning System (GPS), Motor Drive (DRV), and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The Compass (CMP) and Global Positioning System (GPS) are used to minimize the effect of high acceleration on the MōVI’s tilt and roll axis stabilization. In indoor environments, they may not be available, but the MōVI will still operate. The Motor Drive (DRV) and Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) are critical systems and the MōVI will not operate without them. If DRV or IMU is not active, the following quick troubleshooting steps may help: + Motor Drive (DRV) Errors: Check for unplugged wires at the Motor Drive (MōVI M10). Check for wire damage in general. + Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) Errors: The IMU may fail to start properly if the MōVI is moving during startup. Try rebooting the MōVI while stationary. If this fails, check for an unplugged wire between the IMU and the Gimbal Controller, or physical damage to the IMU. Other telemetry values in this menu provide information about MōVI status and performance: + Batt [V]: The exact MōVI battery voltage is provided here. (An approximate fuel gauge is always available in the status bar.) + Batt [Ah]: An estimate of the battery capacity used since startup of the MōVI. Consult the battery labeling for the nominal full-charge capacity. + GPS Sats: The number of GPS satellite links acquired. A minimum of six is required for the MōVI to utilize GPS-based acceleration compensation. Not applicable in indoor environments. + Temp [C]: The temperature of the MōVI processor. (Typical values are under 50-60ºC.) + CPU [%]: The MōVI processor utilization. (Typical values are under 60-70%.) + Tilt/Roll/Pan [deg]: The physical angle of each MōVI axis, referenced to the outside world. This can be useful for moving to exact positions, such as looking straight down (Tilt -90º). + Tilt/Roll/Pan Motor: The amount of motor torque used on each axis. This can be helpful during balancing: A well-balanced MōVI should show less than 3% torque on all three motors in any camera or handle position. P21

MōVI CONFIG • SYSTEM OPTIONS Save MōVI configuration to non-volatile (long-term) memory from here. Settings changes not saved before powering down or rebooting SAVE SETTINGS the MōVI will be lost. REBOOT MōVI Reinitialize the MōVI. This can be useful for clearing any Errors that occur during MōVI start-up. • TILT/ROLL/PAN These settings control how much the motors are used to stabilize the camera on each axis. For best performance, each Stiffness value STIFFNESS should be as high as possible without causing oscillation on its axis. Generally, heavier cameras allow for higher Stiffness settings. Reverse the direction of the Focus Knob input. • AUTO TUNE The MōVI is capable of automatically adjusting Stiffness settings once a camera payload has been attached and balanced. Select “Start” to begin the process. • AUTO TUNE The Auto Tune process adjusts the Stiffness settings until oscillation is detected, then sets the final values to a fraction of the value at SET (%): the onset of oscillation. This parameter adjusts the safety margin used. 50% is a good value for most applications (50% --MōVI M10 and 70% --MōVI M5) . A higher value may result in better performance. A lower value allows for more flexibility in adjusting focal length, changing lenses, or adding accessories without retuning. • GYRO/OUTPUT (Expert Settings) These settings adjust the strength of the filters applied to the MōVI’s gyro inputs and motor outputs, respectively. If FILTER the MōVI is experiencing oscillations that cannot be corrected by adjusting Stiffness settings, you can use the filters to further tune the gimbal and remove oscillations. As a general rule, if the oscillations are fast and rough in nature (buzzing/vibration), try increasing the filter values. If the oscillations are slow and smooth in nature (rocking), try decreasing the filter values. The following factory-default values work well in most cases: GYRO FILTER OUTPUT FILTER MōVI M5 3 3 MōVI M10 5 5 P22

• MAJESTIC MODE: This configures the MōVI's single-operator mode, called Majestic Mode, and is enabled using the MODE switch (M, center position, for Majestic) or by turning off the MōVI Controller. There are two Majestic Mode options: TILT LOCK Allow the tilt axis to be positioned by hand, then holds that angle. TILT ON Allow the tilt axis to be controlled by pointing the MōVI handles. • MAJESTIC PAN/ In Majestic Mode, pan (and tilt, if enabled) are controlled by pointing the MōVI handles. An adjustable amount of smoothing is added to TILT SMOOTHING the camera movements here. Higher values will give smoother pan and tilt movements, but more lag. Lower values will force the camera to follow the handles more closely. • MAJESTIC PAN/ In order to eliminate unintentional pan/tilt movements and maintain stability, an adjustable window can be set within which Majestic Mode TILT WINDOW will ignore MōVI handle movements. A lower window will cause the camera to follow the handles more accurately, for slow, precise shots. A higher window will allow for handle movement without affecting stability, for dynamic running or jumping shots. To access the full range of MōVI configuration settings, use the MōVI Configurator app available for PC, Mac, and Android at: http://www.freeflysystems.com/. For a more detailed description of each MōVI configuration parameter, refer to the MōVI manuals available at: http://www.freeflysystems.com/media/instruction-manuals.php. RADIO CONFIG Settings for configuring the primary 2.4GHz radio transceiver are located here. You can also bind to a new Receiver in this menu. • RADIO ACTIONS: Select an action to perform for configuring the primary radio. Start the action by clicking the Menu Set knob. Note: These actions will momentarily halt MōVI control and telemetry while the radio is being configured. The MōVI may briefly return to Majestic Mode during this time. READ Read the current Channel, Device Group, and Power Level from the radi. WRITE Write the modified Channel, Device Group, and Power Level to the radio. Add a new receiver to the current Device Group. This will allow the MōVI Controller to communicate with the new Receiver. See Binding to BIND a New MōVI Controller Receiver above. P23

• CHANNEL The channel setting determines the physical RF channel used by the MōVI Controller’s primary radio link. One of twelve channels in the 2.4GHz band can be chosen manually, or choose 0 (Automatic) to allow the MōVI Controller to automatically select the clearest channel at startup. The channel selected must match the channel on the MōVI Controller Receiver.

(This is akin to “model memory” on a standard RC transmitter.) Each device group can have one or more MōVI Controller Receivers bound to it. This can be useful for selecting between multiple MōVI systems that are on at the same time. For simple single MōVI use, the Device Group can be left at the default setting (0). • POWER LEVEL Configure the power level (from 10-18dBm) to ensure compliance with local RF regulations.

During normal operation, it displays the same colors as the MōVI Receiver. CONTROLLER RADIO CONNECTION (BINDING) The Wedge connects to the MoVI Controller using the same process as described in the "BINDING TO A NEW MōVI CONTROLLER RECEIVER" section of this manual. P32

MENU STRUCTURE The Wedge is controlled and configured by several dedicated MoVI Controller Screens described below. Primary navigation and control is achieved by scrolling and pressing the MENU and SET buttons. FIZ MAIN This is the typical “Home” screen for FIZ multi-axis operations. It shows the positions of all axes and provides access to the majority of common control commands. FIZ (FOCUS, IRIS, ZOOM) MAIN SCREEN WITH PERCENTAGE SCALES SCREEN WITH 3 AXIS LENS MAPPING ACTIVE • Positions of Each Axis: Displayed in Percent or, when a Lens Map is selected, physical units. Units are changeable on the FIZ Config. Screen. • Z-Spd: Zoom speed scaling. • CAM (Camera Status): STBY/REC. This is the status of the output for simple output type run stop camera interfaces, (RED EPIC, RED ONE, ARRI RS) or status from the camera for serial interfaces (LANC, Sony MT, etc). • Limits: Allows setup of motor range limiting. Move the motor to the position you would like the first limit to be set. Highlight the limits field. Press the SET button and keep it pressed. Move the knob to the second limit. Release the SET button. The entire range of the control knob will now cause motor motion in the limited range. Momentarily press and release the button again to turn off the limits.Z-Spd: (Zoom Speed) Zoom Speed Scaling. • Lock: With this field selected, pressing the SET button locks the position so that knob movement doesn't move the motor. Press the SET button again to unlock. • CAL: With this field selected, pressing the SET button requests an auto calibration to be performed on each axis. • RESET: Clears Faults on any faulted axes. Axis reset to the un-calibrated state. • Lens: The focal length of the currently selected lens. P33

FOCUS DETAIL SCREEN, FOCUS DETAIL SCREEN, FOCUS DETAIL SCREEN, AUTO-CALIBRATION TORQUE SENSING AUTO-CALIBRATION FINDING LIMIT 1 AUTO-CALIBRATION FINDING LIMIT 1 • F/I/Z Letter: Highlight this field and scroll the SET button to change the axis for which you want to view the details for. • CAM: (Camera Status) STBY/REC. This is the status of the output for simple output type run stop camera interfaces, (RED EPIC, RED ONE, ARRI RS) or status from the camera for serial interfaces (LANC, Sony MT, etc). • Position: Units are changeable on the FIZ General Cfg Screen. A lens must be selected for real units to be displayed. The position is also indicated by the bar scale. • CAL: Scrolling the SET button selects AUTO (AT) or MANUAL (MN) calibration mode. Pressing the SET button begins calibration. See the “How To” sections for calibration sequences. • Lock: First press locks position movement on the axis. Second press unlocks. • LANC +/-: Pressing the SET button on these Icons commands movement of the lens axis when connected to supported cameras/lenses via LANC connection to camera. Scrolling the SET button while either + or – is highlighted moves the axis one increment. • Limits: Same as above. Also, the minimum and maximum range selected will be displayed under the progress bar in the selected axis units, and the bar is filled in where the range limits are. • STAT: Shows which state the selected axis is currently in. Typically this is used to view the steps the axis is in during homing. The following are the states: • Uncalibrated • Moving to Command Position • Calibrated • Auto Cal Sensing Torque • Auto Cal Finding Limit 1 • Auto Cal Finding Limit 1 • Manual Cal Set Min Limit • Manual Cal Set Max Limit • Faulted P34

FIZ CONFIG This screen is used for general configuration of the Wedge. It contains settings that are axis-specific but not common to all axes, and other non-axis related settings. WEDGE CONFIGURATION SCREEN 1 WEDGE CONFIGURATION SCREEN 2 SETTINGS Scrolling SET allows selection of Load Defaults/Load Saved/Save. Pressing SET performs the requested option. This only affects settings ACTION that are persistent and not state dependent. The units and scaling are not persistent. This selects the type of camera that the FIZ is connected to. Note that the proper cable must be used to control the camera, and this CAMERA TYPE setting must be set correctly. Linear/Stretched. Setting this to Stretched causes more of the focus knob travel to be used in the longer focal distance range where the FOCUS SCALE scale gets compressed. This allows greater fidelity of focal point as the focal distance grows. FOCUS STD/ Selects between Feet/Inch or Meters to be used for focus distance measurements when the selected units for the focus axis is METRIC UNIT Distance. LENS UNIT FOCUS (PERCENT/ Setting this to distance shows the Focus position in physical units or percent. A lens must be selected to show physical units.

(PERCENT/FSTOP) LENS UNITS ZOOM (PERCENT/FOCAL Setting this to Focal Length shows the Zoom position in physical units or percent. A lens must be selected to show physical units. LENGTH) P35

FIZ AXIS CFG This screen allows configuration of axis specific settings that are present on each axis, but allows setting them independently. The Axis is selected using the 1st field. The rest of the settings then reflect the setting of the selected axis. FIZ CONFIG MENU 1 FIZ CONFIG MENU 2 AXIS SELECT Scrolling allows selection of Focus/Iris/Zoom. SETTINGS ACTION Scrolling SET allows selection of Load Defaults/Load Saved/Save. Pressing SET performs the requested option. Sets control loop gains, fault settings and other settings that are specific to the motor. These are relatively small adjustments and MOTOR MODEL motors generally work independent of this setting, but will not be optimized and protected as well. DAMPENING Changes the amount of low pass filtering of the input control knob or other interface. Changes the direction that the Knob (or other control interface) is interpreted. It can be used in conjunction with the Motor Direction KNOB DIRECTION setting to allow the preferred control interface direction while still ensuring the mapped units are correct. This setting is not persistent. Normal/Reverse. Changes motor direction. This is especially important when using a mapped lens. If the lens is moving opposite of the MOTOR DIRECTION physical units displayed on the screen, setting this to reverse will cause the motor to move with the units. This setting is persistent and is stored on the Wedge. TORQUE LIMIT Changes the amount of maximum current allowed. Note that these are relative current settings, and may be different between motors. SPEED This changes the maximum speed that the motor can reach. It provides a way to smoothly limit the motor speed if needed to ensure (SLEW RATE) LIMIT smooth operation and limited stress on the lens. This allows changing the control input setting fo each axis to be changed. The following are the traditional inputs. CONTROL INPUT Focus: Large Knob (FOCUS/IRIS/ Iris: Small Knob ZOOM) Zoom: Rocker Swith Focus: Large Knob Iris: Small Knob Zoom: Rocker Switch P36

LENS MAPPING The MōVI Controller has the ability to save a set of information about lenses that allows a lenses actual physical units to be displayed instead of a simple percentage of travel. This is called lens mapping, as it requires the user to save a set of lens position points along the travel of each axis. These position points are used by sophisticated curve fitting functions to accurately calculate the lenses’ values in between, by interpolating these points anywhere in the lenses axis travel ranges. SELECTABLE UNITS FOR EACH AXIS FOCUS Percentage of Travel Focal Distance (Ft. + Inches or Meters) IRIS Percentage of Travel Aperture (F/T Stops) ZOOM Percentage of Travel Focal Length (mm) P37

LENS MAP FILE Lens files contain data that is used to identify and map the lens. The files are stored in a folder-like organization consisting of: / Manufacturer / Model Name / Serial Number The following is the data contained in each file: • Manufacturer: Selectable from list of common manufacturers. "Other" can be used for those that are not in the list. • Model Name: Selectable from a list of common lens models for each manufacturer. "Other" can be used for those that are not in the list. • Serial Number: Up to 8 digit user-enterable serial number/unique ID. • Focal Length (FL): Focal Length or focal length range of lens in mm. • Axes: Selects which lens axes are mapped. • Focus Map Points: • Infinity Mark (Qty 1): Point that approximates infinite Focus. • Close Focus (Qty 1): The shortest distance that is marked on the lens. • Mapping Points (Qty 1 to 9): Rocker Switch • Iris Map Points: • Maximum Aperture (Qty 1): This is the smallest F Number marked on the lens. • Minimum Aperture (Qty 1): This is the largest F Number marked on the lens. • Mapping Points (Qty 1 to 8): Intermediate F Numbers between the smallest and largest. • Zoom Map Points: • Short Focal Length (Qty 1): This is the shortest Focal Length marked on the lens. • Long Focal Length (Qty 1): This is the longest Focal Length marked on the lens. • Mapping Points (Qty 1 to 8): Intermediate Focal Length positions along the zoom scale. P38

LENS MAPPING SCREEN HIERARCHY The following is the typical progression through the Lens Mapping Sreens while adding a lens with F, I, and Z axes. Lens Library Main -> Mfg Select -> Name Select -> Lens Select/Add/Delete -> Serial Number Entry -> Axes Select -> Focal Length Entry -> Map Focus Infinity Point -> Map Focus Closest Point -> Map Additional Focus Points -> Map Iris Maximum Aperture Value -> Map Iris Minimum Aperture Value -> Map Iris Additional Aperture Values -> Map Zoom Maximum Zoom Value -> Map Zoom Minimum Focal Length -> Map Zoom Additional Focal Lengths -> P39

LENS LIBRARY MAIN SCREEN This is the entry point into the Lens Editor and Selection Displays. It also shows the currently selected lens information. • Select/Add: Allows adding or deleting a lens for use. • Current Lens: • Mfg: Manufacturer • Type: Model name of the lens • Ser# (Serial Number): Can be used to store a unique identifier that allows the user to identify the lens. • Axes: This shows which axes are maped in the selected lens file. Lenses do not need to have all axes mapped, even if they physically have them. This can be any combination of focus, iris and/or zoom. • F L (Focal Length): This is the Focal Length for prime lenses, or Focal Length Range for zoom lenses. P40

LENS MANUFACTURER SELECTION Used for navigating lens folders. Numbers in parenthesis are the number of lens files present under that folder. LENS NAME SELECTION This allows the user to select the Model Name of the Lens. Numbers in parenthesis are the number of lens files present under that folder. LENS SELECT/ADD/DELETE Displays the saved Lens file of the specified manufacturer and model. Lenses can be added by selecting the "Add New" field. Lens files can be selected or deleted by highlighting the "Action" field of the desired lens and scrolling the SET button to "Select" or "Delete". The action can then be performed by pressing the SET button with the desired action selected. There is a warning screen that appears upon a Delete request to confirm the command. P41

SERIAL NUMBER ENTRY This is the first screen used to enter Lens file data. Enter the serial number for the lens. Can be used to store any unique numeric identifier that allows the user to identify the lens. AXES SELECT Select the axes of the lens to enable mapping. If a specific axis is checked, that means that it is active. FOCAL LENGTH ENTRY Focal length entry for the lens in mm. A range is shown for zoom lenses while a single value is shown for primes. It is important to enter the actual focal length, as this is used in the focal distance calculations. P42

FOCUS MAPPING POINTS These Screens are used to map the focus axis points. The Infinity, and close focus points must be added while the others are optional. The Controller sugests common mapping points that are typically marked on Cinema prime lenses of the selected focal length, however, these can be adjusted if necessary, and should certainly be adjusted if they are not marked on the lens. You will get the best mapping accuracy if you use all of the marked points if possible. After entering the close focus point, the values should increase towards the last marked point before infinity, which should be last mapped point. The order they are added in is: 1. Infinity: This typically marked as the ∞ symbol on the lens. 2. Close Focus: This is the closest marked distance on the lens. 3. Intermediate Focus points: Recommended based on the focal length of the lens, and marks commonly found on cinema prime lenses of that length. 4. Finish Early: The "Finish" option should be used if there are no more marked positions on the lens and there are still points left. P43

IRIS MAPPING POINTS These Screens are used to map the iris axis travel. 1. Iris Maximum Aperture (Low F-Stop) 2. Intermediate Aperture Points 3. Iris Minimum Aperture (High F-Stop) P44

ZOOM MAPPING POINTS These Screens are used to map the Zoom axis travel. 1. Zoom Minimum Focal Length 2. Zoom Intermediate Focal Length 3. Zoom Maximum Focal Length P45

CONTROLLER RADIO CONNECTION (BINDING) The MōVI and Wedge must be bound together to communicate, much like the Receiver for the MoVI. Only that specific MōVI Controller can control that Wedge. However, it is possible to rebind the Wedge to a new MōVI Controller, or bind new Wedges to a single MōVI Controller for working with multiple MōVI systems (note: only one Wedge can be operated at a time with the MōVI controller. Ensure that the MōVI Controller and Wedge are both set to the same channel, or both set to auto-select (Channel 0) (These should match what the MōVI Controller is set to) 1 • Set the channel in Radio Config::Channel on the MōVI Controller. • Apply changes with Radio Config::Radio Action::Write. • Select the same channel on the Rotary Channel Switch in the Wedge. Select a Device Group. Binding is specific to a Device Group; the Wedge is joing the chosen group. See Radio Config menu description for more info. 2 • Set the Device Group in Radio Config::Device Group. • Apply changes with Radio Config::Radio Action::Write. Initiate Bind Mode on the Wedge. 3 • Press and hold the Bind button on the Wedge until the Status LED will be flashing orange quickly to indicate the Bind Mode is active and it is seeking a MōVI Controller with which to bind. Initiate Bind Mode on the MōVI Controller (no need to wait for a slow flashing light). 4 • Allow the Wedge to bind by starting Bind Mode on the MōVI Controller with Radio Config::Radio Action::Bind. • After a few seconds, the Wedge will indicate successful binding with a solid green Status LED. A solid red Status LED indicates a bind failure. Following a bind, the Wedge will reset. During this time the Status LED will return to flashing green momentarily as the connection starts. After a few 5 seconds, the Wedge will be connected. • The Wedge Status LED will return to solid green to indicate that it is receiving control data from the MōVI Controller. 6 If the bind process fails, try repeating Steps 1-5. For further troubleshooting steps, refer to the Troubleshooting section. P49
