KOS FOR CINEDRIVE

As feature rich and powerful as CineDrive is, the ease-of-use is just as impressive. Instead of wasting time on shoots trying to figure out the system, CineDrive's quick set-up and intuitive kOS software gives users the ability to set up incredibly complex motion control moves, with relatively little learning in a short amount of time. Setting and editing key frames on-the-fly ensures ultimate control and flexibility in the system's workflow - eliminating wasted time for you and your clients.

VISUAL FX

Perfectly repeat moves to easily composite footage for a wide range of VFX

EVENT MANAGER

Save and move between multiple saved positions quickly and easily. For example, if you are filming a live concert you could save the position of the lead singer, guitarist and drummer and then could quickly and easily move the camera to each of their positions on stage. 


GIGAPIXEL

Used for 360 virtual tours, panoramic photographs, and tradition gigapixel high resolution photographs compiled from many lower resolution photographs

LIVE AND LOOPING
From basic slider shots to unmanned, looping shots for an interview - CineDrive proves its place as an A cam or B cam.

TIME-LAPSE
Easily setting up a complex time-lapse has never been so easy. With basic and advanced features, the intricacy of the move is up to you.

UP TO 10 AXIS CONTROL

Need more than slide, pan & tilt? Connect up to 10 motors (focus/iris/zoom or more slide, pan & tilt) for the ultimate setup.

PERFECT REPEATABILITY
When precision is essential, CineDrive delivers. Perfect repeatable motion control is a hallmark of the system. Don't waste time fixing in post what CineDrive can accomplish in camera.
