The Teradek RT MDR.ACI Wireless RED Camera Control is a wireless assistant camera interface that lets you remotely access your RED DSMC2 camera’s settings and menus. Key features include:
Long range DSMC2 control using RCP
Customizable menu and user buttons
Supports up to 3 motors for Focus, Iris, and Zoom control
D-Tap power source and DSMC2 expander module required
Easy Setup. The Teradek RT MDR.ACI Wireless RED Camera Control mounts to the assistant side of a DSMC2 brain and connects to a compatible expander module’s control port for wireless and on-board access to your camera settings. Need to add wireless lens control? We also rent the Teradek RT MK3.1 Lens Control w/ MDR.ACI Receiver bundled with this receiver.
Integrated LCD and Intuitive Controls. The bright, integrated LCD reformats RED’s default camera menu for ease of use, and clearly displays the information you need. Customizable buttons and a jog wheel let you easily navigate the camera’s menus.
Connections. The MDR.ACI features three 4-pin motor ports, one 4-pin power input, and two aux controller input ports. Two MDR.ACI 2.4GHz RP-SMA Wifi Antennas are rated for up to 5,000’ with an indoor wireless range up to 500’. Please note, wireless transmission is measured line of sight and in ideal working conditions. Reliable transmission at a distance of 5000’ or 500’ is unlikely for most shoots.
Expander Module and Power Source Required. This ACI requires a DSMC2 expander module featuring a dedicated CTRL input and a p-tap external power source like the ones commonly found on brick batteries and battery plates. If you are renting a DSMC2 brain from us, we already include a DSMC2 Base Expander.
