KFX exhibited at the BSC show in London with our good friends Ronford Baker. We demonstrated the new motion control software that we have been working on in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit. The new software runs on most Windows PC’s and Tablets using an easy to use touch screen interface. Our KFX Aurora Max moved smoothly on a vertical mounted slider powered by the KFX Heavy Duty Slider Motor, and our Aurora Mini was demonstrated on a 10’ slider mounted at 45 degrees, also powered by the KFX Heavy Duty Slider Motor.
KFX Aurora Max is the newest head from KFX technology and has been working on various sets for the last year. The head builds on the success of the original Aurora and has the same simple set-up and great feel from the handwheels. The head itself has gone through a complete redesign and is now easily and quickly adjustable on all axes. The payload has been upped to 99 pounds (45kg). The new drive system is based around a backlash free gearbox and is among the smoothest and quietest available.
KFX Aurora Mini has become very popular for its light weight and the same ease of set up that sets our brand apart. With a weight of just under 20 pounds and a 55 pound payload, it has become a favorite for long run of show use. Built with the same backlash free gearbox as the Max, it is quiet and incredibly smooth as well as adjustable along any axis. The Aurora Mini is a great option for a run of show head that won’t break the budget.
The new Moco software can be added to any of the KFX Slider Motors that run on the Ronford Baker and GFM sliders. The software runs on most Windows 10 tablets and PC’s with a mouse or a touch screen. KFX software makes it easy to record live moves or enter simple A to B moves in set times. Time-lapse functions for stills cameras are also included in the software. Adding one of any of the KFX remote heads gives a full 3 axis repeatable system that is easy to program.
