Varrizoom's all-new ergonomic Jibstick controller, the Cinema Pro JR-K4, offers high-performance pan/tilt/zoom/focus in an incredibly user-friendly package. With all the speed and stability of the advanced motion control kits, but no menus or complex settings, and far fewer buttons and options, the Cinema Pro JR-K4 goes to work with minimal training and setup. At only 13 pounds, the CP Jr is ideal for cranes and portable remote applications, and its superior programming capability and rock-solid electromechanical performance make it a perfect upgrade for the low-tech heads found on most jib systems. The Jibstick controller does not allow record/playback, intervalometer, go-to-marks, or camera sync. The K4 control offers on-the-fly custom motion limits, independent pan & tilt speed control, smoothing control, motor power toggle, independent response direction switches for pan/tilt/zoom/focus, digital and analog lens control input, on-the fly zoom centering, PC-compatible USB interface for advanced setup and firmware updates. This kit includes CP Jr head (100mm half-ball mount, Mitchell available on request), Jibstick control, 50' control cable, AC adapter, 30' XLR power extension, waterproof hard carrying case.

The all-new Jibstick control kit offers the simplicity and intuitive design favored by operators, but now adds many of the features from Varizoom's more advanced control systems. The Cinema Pro Jr borrows heavily from the acclaimed Cinema Pro master motion control system, and although it's scaled down about 35% in most respects, the CP Jr's baseline performance is remarkably close to that of its big brother. At only 13 pounds, the Cinema Pro Jr is ideal for jib and crane applications, and its superior programming capability and rock-solid electromechanical performance make it a perfect upgrade for the low-tech heads found on most jib systems. The CP Jr also performs extremely well as a high speed fixed-mount head or a mobile remote head for small to mid-scale productions.

The new Jibstick Kit is a simplified, user-friendly system that has all of the electromechanical performance of the other kits, but without full motion control capability. This Jibstick control has a professional long-throw joystick mounted in an ergonomic grip base and all controls and settings are within reach of your fingertips. The Jibstick system includes a zoom/focus controller, but it also integrates seamlessly with Varrizoom's TOC lens controls systems. The Jibstick works beautifully where intuitive manual control is needed, and it can be upgraded later with an advanced console and pan bars or hand wheels. The new Jibstick allows you to set independent motion limits for pan and tilt, lock off pan and/or tilt, switch motor power off, reverse direction on pan/tilt/zoom/focus independently, adjust speed limits for pan & tilt independently, and adjust smoothing control for softer starts & stops.

Incorporating such high-end features as precision enclosed drivetrain, pan slip ring, and built-in zoom/focus control, the Cinema Pro Jr represents a new standard for lightweight, cost-effective pan & tilt motion control heads. The Cinema Pro Jr is precision-made yet rugged and becoming the logical and affordable choice for a much broader scope of users than any head on the market. Cost effective not only for big budget motion pictures, but for worship facilities, sports, concerts, newsrooms,military,government, and other film, video, and HD applications.

Proudly Made in the USA, the CP Jr is constructed from body sections that are CNC machined from solid billet to exacting standards, so rigidity and structural integrity are second to none. The custom slip rings and robust motor drives are designed and tested intensively to perform flawlessly under the most demanding conditions, and the electronics & software have years of field testing behind them. Add to all this the painstaking assembly and QC done in Varizoom's state-of-the-art facility, and you've got a motion control head of the highest caliber.
