Just saw a Bartech FIZ setup today. PLC has the Bartech addon Iris slider on their website already: http://www.plcelectr...pgrade-kit.html I also saw it setup with a Preston digital microforce plugged in to the bartech but I don't see it on the site so I don't know the status of that. Anyone had a chance to play with it? The price definitely seems right.

This is cool. How do you take advantage of the second channel on the receiver end?

You need to get a second receiver and it must be a digital one. The digital receiver has extra channel selections that are used for selecting iris operation.

I didn't notice a channel selection for the Iris on the remote. Can multiple of them operate in the same space at the same time? (a 2 camera show for instance)

Also whats the status on zoom control?

The idea of a full FIZ option at such an attractive price point is awesome.

Hi Jess,

I wrote the software for the Bartech multi-channel handset upgrades to send Focus and Iris on the same Channel
That way you can have multiple systems on the same set in multi channel mode

The Digital receiver has 16 switch positions to choose from 0-9,a,b,c,d,e,f

0 to 7 are for focus

A = channel 0 iris
B = channel 3 iris
C = channel 7 iris

So when you have a 2 channel Focus /Iris handset you can for example

set the Handset to Channel 0.

on the Focus receiver set the Channel to 0

and on the Iris receiver set the Channel to A

Cheers,

Marc

Would it be safe to assume that channels D, E, & F will be for a future zoom function?

Yes,

This is the plan for the future. I have just added them into the
wireless protocol.

Best Regards,

Marc

Can it be used with one analog and one digital motor driver?
If so, wouldn't it be better to use the digital for focus?

Yes, the Analog receiver and motor can be used for focus while the digital receiver and motor are used for Iris (or zoom).

If you work on live TV and have to run your own focus, you'd rather have the Analog receiver control your focus, so you can plug in the manual focus box, or plug in a Stanton, or G Zoom etc.., There is no current way to manually hard wire focus control to a digital receiver/motor driver that I'm aware of.

best,
Osvaldo
