The range of the system is scalable. Up to 25 Ambits may be used (connected by grid poles), with each creating an approximate 8’ radius performance area, for a total of performance area of approximately 48’ x48’ (14.64m x 14.64m). Although we generally use 8’ (2.44m) as an approximate radius per Ambit, they can achieve up to 13’ range in ideal situations where magnetic interference is minimal and the depth of field isn’t too shallow.
Our simplest setup, using an Ambit mounted to the camera, has a range of up to 13ft/3.66m in front of the camera and is perfect for “run & gun” scenarios.
Two Ambits on a grid pole can be mounted above, creating a performance area of 16’ x 24’, to the side on a c-stand, creating a performance area of 8’ x 24’, or carried by an operator for a mobile performance area of 8’ x24’.
An infinite amount of fixed focal distances, which have no relevance to the performance area, can also be stored and recalled at any time. Think of these as the digital equivalent of focus marks drawn on a focus wheel with a dry erase marker.
