  • Origo Wireless Operation Video

    Hey all. After a couple weeks of tweaking we are very close to getting these units into beta testing with some folks in the Los Angeles area.  Here's a video showing some of the functionality - there will be another complete video demo in a day or two where we will explain how all of the buttons and modes work.  Please note that all of these features will be available with an addon to the Impero controller in the near future and we will also have an origo receiver for use with nearly all cinema cameras on the market.

  • Origo Wireless Protos Arrived

    Hey all, here is a sneak peak at the final design of the wireless Origo.  The tooling is running on the mill and we expect to have first shots next week - just in time for beta testing.  Complete specs to be announced shortly.  The price point is going to be $399 and a pre-order should be up next week for delivery in April.

  • Novo Digital Camera

    Here is the latest weekend project from View Factor - a rehoused GoPro Hero 3!  These are VERY difficult to assemble and as such we aren't going to be offering them as a product,  but the good news is that we have worked out a rental program with the kind folks at Radiant Images in Los Angeles.

    The Novo has an adjustable back focus ring and can work with nearly any C-Mount lens. We have an internal CPU interfaced to the camera that allows us to enable/disable the auto exposure as well as provide digital zoom for checking critical focus. The buttons on the front are assignable to several functions depending on the application.

    Radiant Images will have a package deal which includes the Novo, custom geared C-Mount lenses, and misc accessories.  We will have more information on that in the next couple weeks. You can also check out their site at

  • Origo-W Wireless Prototype

    We are proud to announce a new product that will be ready for prime time very soon... the wireless Origo.  The Origo-W will wirelessly start and stop your Epic/Scarlet using the WIFI built into the camera so there are no cables or boxes to mount. The all new Origo-W is only slightly larger than the original Origo yet it has a number of features that will make it an indispensable tool for your kit. Currently we have the protocols designed to work with  RED EPIC® and SCARLET® cameras but we will have additional receiver hardware options to work with conventional GPIO and Lanc-based camera control scenarios as well.

    --Long battery life with only a CR2032 Battery(More on that soon)
    --Compact size: 2.21"x 0.92" x 0.52" (56mm x 23mm x 13mm)
    --Wireless: 2.4 GHz direct control of RED EPIC® and SCARLET® cameras.
    --OFN finger navigation sensor (12-bit control in X and Y axis, mappable to menu navigation or EF lens control)
    --Four user assignable buttons (assign the same way as the buttons on the REDMOTE®)
    --LEDs for battery and tally readout. 100%  accurate to values on camera display
    --Four mounting holes for handle mounting brackets etc.
    --Rear battery cover includes a lanyard loop for included neck strap
    --Micro USB input for power and firmware updates
    --FCC, IC, and ETSI certified.

    A great thing about the newer firmware from Red is that they have allowed multiple REDMOTE® controllers to be used at the same time.  So you could feasibly have a redmote for a display/control, an Origo-W for menu navigation, and yet another for controlling an EF lens.

    Estimated MRSP on the Origo-W will be less $425. A pre-order page will be up on this site within the next few weeks.  No orders are billed until units are ready to ship. 


    One last note: We continue to offer DFF credit towards any products we are shipping... that includes the Origo-W. So if you currently have an Impero/Inclino order on the books you can use that credit towards anything we make. (Read More)
