Preston Separate Remote Iris Controller


The Preston Separate Remote Iris Controller is designed to control the complete array of both lens and camera functions. The system is modular, giving the user a wide range of choices from a basic cable connected system to a full wireless microwave system. The System consists of the Hand Unit, Motor Driver, Digital Motors, optional Microwave Link, cables and motor mounting bracket.


The heart of the system is the Hand Unit. Its robust construction, ergonomic design and quick set-up have all contributed to its position as the "industry standard". The unit provides 16 bits of position resolution - 1 part in 64,000 - for incredible smoothness. A bright bargraph display shows the position of the zoom lens. A "Snorkel Mode" enables electronic Pan and Horizon control of Snorkel lenses. The zoom function is implemented by a Micro Force control. It can be directly connected to the Hand Unit. A unique scale adjustment system makes set-up extremely quick.

A unique scale adjustment system makes set-up extremely quick. Any portion of the lens focus, iris, or zoom range may be expanded to the full-scale range of the corresponding control knob with the touch of a switch. In the case of zoom, electronic limit stops can be set. An optional Remote Iris Box provides a separate control for the Iris function. It is automatically enabled when plugged into the Iris accessory connector on the Hand Unit.

Please note our Preston Kit #2 now has 24V Arri to Preston MDR Power Cable and 24V Millenium XL Preston MDR Power Cable. We also have a Remote Iris Unit available to go out with either of our Preston Kits.
