Hey Chris!

Nice photo there!Did you get those raincovers made (and is MK-V selling those) or did you just wrap it in and seal it with gaffer-tape?
BTW did a german production company call you??I gave them your no. because I didn't have time for the job!
Do you know when MK-V will be selling the Z-axis gimbalcontrol and for how much?I wrote Howard an email a while ago but he never got back to me!

cheers mate!

Sadly I had to retire a pair of trainers prematurely! sacrificed for a mud slinging, rain dancing commercial.
The plastic on the LCD wasnt too much of a bother as I have a new bracket that enables the monitor to tilt up and down on the rig... very useful for increasing your viewing angle specific to operating.

Hi Guys

If you would like to see more photos - please log onto www.mk-v.com and then hit the link for "Monthly
Pictures"

This is a new feature on the site and ANY MK-V owners can email us photos (of them working) and we will post them here.

This page then goes into the Gallery at the end of the month.

Hope you like it.
All the best

Today was the first day of the MK-V AR and wireless HD link being used on SKY soccer... I believe it was a resounding success!!
Bolton v Fulham - There should be game highlights tonight on Match of the Day.

Howard Smith and Tony at Charter have worked hard to get this finally up and running.

Well done Jon Clark for Operating! Looking forward to seeing more!

Best Chris

Thats awsome news and i'm sure the implications for this will be wide spread. Do you have any details on setup for us (camera type, uplink method etc) ?

Hi Matt

How are you?

Ok what we used was the thompson Viper with a custom digital video link. (1 frame delay). Full racking etc. (from Charter) we also used the new MK-V focus system.
The system worked beautifully, no problems at all.

We (John) got some amazing shots, we are waiting for the footage and we will put some on our site.
We will also have some photos of this on the site very soon as well.


I spoke with the director this morning and he was very fired up with what we were able to get.

All in all it was great.

Hope this helps
All the best
Howard
