Requested by customers, we came up with a solution to encode Jimmy Jib cranes, jib arm and head, using our high-resolution absolute encoders.

Compact solution

There is no need to change the motors, as the encoders are mounted directly which, in turn, results in no gearing and, therefore, zero backlash. But, a word of warning: because the Jimmy Jib has a very flexible arm it doesn’t lend itself to the use of virtual graphics. The flex in the arm is not taken into account by the encoders and it is possible to get a visible mismatch or drift if the arm is swung too fast. If you want a fully encoded crane for your virtual studio, the better solution is the e-Crane with its rigid arm and accurate data output.

“For this year’s E!'s coverage of the Oscars I wanted to do something different and sold [E!] them on the idea of enhancing their broadcast with AR graphics during the Countdown show as well as the Post show. As this was E!'s first foray into AR graphics we needed a solid and reliable tracking system. We used 2 systems; the Mo-Sys Vinten V70 Kit and also the Mo-Sys crane encoding kit for tracking. They are both robust and travel friendly options that guarantee accurate tracking data. Next year we will hopefully be using a full Unreal set-up with AR and you can be sure we'll have a full complement of Mo-Sys encoders”.
