New advanced flying technology

1D systems on wires are widely used in broadcasting and cinema, but their area of use is very narrow, as they can’t be transferred to 3D. The 3D systems are also widely spread, but they need huge winches, and up to 80% of energy is used just for maintaining the camera head up in the air.

Size and convenience

After years of research, prototyping and tests, our best engineers and experts from leading robotic and mechanical scientific centers finally managed to reduce the total weight and size of the cord-flying 3D camera system to fit into a suitcase. No huge cord winches anymore! Quick assembly and readiness to use makes the MR ideal for operation by just one cameraman. It is a great compromise between soaring drones and reliable camera cranes, resulting in top shooting quality and unique pictures in any location at the best price ever!

Power recuperation

We designed a special torque circulation mechanism, which allows us to save these 80% of power, moving to 3D with power consumption of 1D systems. The energy is transferred from the unwinding winch to the winding winch. This allows us to reduce the amount of spent energy and meet a wide functional range in the ultra-light system.

JM 1.3 Studio

JM 1.3 is the first product of JoyMechanix Company. JM1.3 is the 3D camera motion system on cords; here, winches can be fixed near the ceiling. This kind of arrangement saves space occupied by the system, leaving the winches almost invisible. This system is designed for studio TV production, medium-size sport arenas and event halls.

JM 1.3 is the best way to reopen all capabilities of your studio space. Its Flight Area is 72 m x 72 m, and it can reach the speed of 4 m/sec. This system offers high accuracy control, safety zones and programmable paths and extremely smooth movement.

Studio cord systems JM 1.3 are integrated with several Embedded Reality systems.

For connection, the standard protocol is used, which allows us to connect our equipment to most of the systems of Embedded
Reality without additional modifications.

JM 2.3 Universal

JM 2.3 is the best choice for large arenas, being able to handle the filming

Systems comparison

JM H 2.0 Black Swan

JoyMechanix systems work with different heads. Customers can attach their own stabilized platform or use ours. H2.0 is gyro-stabilized head with the following functions: Zoom, Focus and Pan-Tilt-Roll control. It can be equipped with a microphone and moderate light (Tally). Power and full set of signals to and from the H2.0 are provided through the hybrid cable (actuated by the special winch). Also H2.0 is very compact in size: h x w x l: 55 сm x 52 cm x 36 cm and weight of just 12 kg (camera and lenses - up to 8 kilos).

Control Stations

To operate JoyMechanix systems we made special control stations, they
are included in composition of the system. Customer can choose how many cameramen (1-2) would operate the control station.

Systems that comply with Control Station:
• for 1 operator — JM 1.3, JM 2.3, JM 4.1, MR
• for 2 operators — JM 1.3, JM 2.3, JM 3.3, JM 4.1, MR
The choice depends on characteristics of the system and what type of control is more suitable to the customer.

Control Station 1

It is controlled by just one cameraman. The station consists of 2 joysticks and 1 monitor, which is responsible for the view from the camera and characteristics of the system. There are three types of control of the JoyMechanix system by CS1:

  • Coordinates (XY)Z — computer; pan, tilt, roll, zoom, focus-operator
  • Coordinates (XY)Z — operator; pan, tilt, roll, zoom, focus-computer
  • Pan, tilt, roll, zoom, focus- computer; Paths-operator

Control Station 2

It is controlled by two cameramen. The station consists of 4 joysticks and
2 monitors (the first one takes care of the camera view, the second one is
responsible for characteristics of the system). There are two types of control of the JoyMechanix system by CS2:

  • Coordinates (XY)Z — pilot; pan, tilt, roll, zoom, focus-operator
  • If there is another head: pan, tilt, roll, zoom, focus native control station could be used
