    - - -

    I have had my RTMotion system since early 2014 and it has been indispensable, especially for gimbal and handheld work. The new Latitude modules are pretty dope too.

    A couple months back, I sketched out an idea for an integrated monitor mount system. Eventually, it became the prototype you see here. Thereís only a few minor tweaks left to do and then it's off to the machinist.

    I am still working out pricing, but if you are interested in a pre-order, I would love to hear from you - please indicate your interest below with the type of power cable you would need (mini-XLR4 for TVLogic, dummy LPE6 for SmallHD 502/501 or dummy L-series for TVLogic's with attached batt plate or SmallHD Focus).

    FYI, the ones you see here are resin and nylon prototypes. The production version will be CNC'd from Aluminum 6061 and type III anodized in black.







    BASE UNIT
    - screws to rear of hand controller
    - locking L-series battery plate
    - sends power to monitor and wireless video receiver via included Power Y-Cable
    - powers hand controller via dummy LPE6
    - houses control circuit for powering LED arm
    - thin light profile, with styling to match hand controller

    SIDE MOUNT
    - Arri rosette for attaching left grip
    - rosette axis matched to focus knob axis for weight distribution

    PIN-ROSETTE ADAPTER **NEW**
    - attaches to side mount
    - mounts to regular light stand's 5/8" baby-pin

    FRONT HARNESS PLATE **NEW**
    - features tactical-style swivel stud for hooking on lanyard or neck-strap

    TOP MOUNT
    - Arri rosette for attaching monitor/rx mount
    - ratchet-style M6 knob

    MONITOR/RX MOUNT
    - viewer angle adjustable via rosette
    - supports monitor and wireless video receiver
    - captive 1/4-20 screws (5/32 and slotted)
    - removable anti-rotation pins for SmallHD monitors
    - anti-slip rubber pads

    LED ARM
    - Bright White or Tactical Red illuminationation modes
    - connects with Lemo and locks via captive screw

    Shout out to Mike Gailing @ Teradek, Jin Lee @ TVLogic and Jon Walsh @ Anton Bauer for helping me with this project. And to Rich Hawkes @ RTMotion for the demo unit while you repaired my screen.

    Very interested. Are the cables removable? It looks like there's 2 Lemo out. Is that right? Also, is there any way you could check compatability with Boxx Atom? I believe they use Hirose connectors for power.

    Totally interested but would prefer to keep it monitor agnostic if possible as in my situation ACs would provide the monitor of their choice. Is that possible? As for the wireless Iím currently still using my Paralinx Arrow Plus as Iím waiting for Teradek to release their DSMC2 integrated Bolt transmitter.
