ARRI Digital Remote Wheels, DRW-1 combines state-of-the-art digital technology with components inspired by earlier generations of the ARRIHEAD. The heavy, hand polished, precision-engineered crank wheels are the same as were used on the mechanical ARRIHEAD. Bringing a mechanical touch and feel to a digital workflow, they provide operators with maximum control by producing a smooth, linear information stream, and enabling operators to trust their muscle memory.
Mechanical friction can be added in order to make the controls less prone to unintended movement, but more responsive to the individual. The brake lever also pays homage to its counterpart on the ARRIHEAD, mimicking the operation of its mechanical forebear and allowing for optimal, intuitive control.
The DRW-1’s assignable controls and interchangeable components make it readily adaptable to the working style and habits of the operator. The angle of the wheels is adjustable to allow for use even in tight or constrained places.
In conjunction with TRINITY 2 and RF 2400 Wireless Transmitter, DRW-1 represents a supremely controllable remote-head system.
