MoVI XL

Power | Stability | Affordable

The MoVI XL has the power and torque to stabilize the heaviest lenses without compromise.

One of the main reasons we offer the new FreeFly System’s MoVI XL to our clients is its ability to carry almost anything. Although we love our smaller stabilized heads, only the MoVI XL can stabilize a camera payload without forcing camera department to scale down their kit.

The second reason we offer the FreeFly MoVI XL is affordability vs performance. The MoVI XL offers excellent performance for the price. Almost equal to some of the industries’ most prolific systems, the MoVI XL can provide a powerful cost alternative that will not break the budget.

The Mojo Camera System (aka MojoCam) is a low profile wireless stabilized railcam system capable of adapting to a variety of ever-changing production environments.  It is an amalgamation of technology which has been rapidly evolving over the past few decades.  The Mojo Camera System™ coalesces advanced MANET wave relay technology, low latency camera transmitters, articulating radio-controlled sleds with advanced silent drives, leading battery technology and a powerful 3-axis low-profile stabilized remote head with powered slip rings for continuous 360-degree camera control.  Each system is managed by an ergonomic camera control desk which enables the camera operator to govern the speed of the railcam, the behavior of the camera head while enabling full remote monitoring of the camera by the broadcaster.  On “World of Dance” the Mojo Camera System™ provides an unobtrusive camera prospective of the art of dance with 360-degree control without interfering with the dancer’s movements while seamlessly capable of providing a dancer’s perspective of the audience and judges.  Professional dancers have praised the MojoCam’s ability to capture dance as it was meant to be seen by all angles from above and/or below without the restriction of a tether.
