Orbit Monitor Positioning System – Standalone

Frame With Precision, Operate With Confidence

This is a gimbal operator's dream: The world’s first Monitor Positioning System (MPS) ensures your monitor is always facing you while operating at any angle. Whether you are shooting at ground level or high overhead, Orbit ensures you can frame the shot accurately and confidently. When using with the Satellite or Navigator Thumb Controller (optional accessories), you can adjust your monitor tilt in manual mode, or activate the unique “Follow Me” accessory to automatically and continuously reposition your monitor in real-time.

Expand Your Range by 50% or More

Gimbals have revolutionized camera movement, but the practical limitation of seeing the monitor to frame your shot means ground level and overhead shots are often a guess. Shots that go from low-to-high or high-to-low are extremely difficult to frame accurately. Orbit MPS solves this problem by ensuring your monitor is always tilted towards you. You can manually adjust monitor position for simple shots, but the real magic is the "Follow Me" Sensor (optional add-on for this bundle) which automatically and continuously repositions the monitor to face you at all times. With Orbit your shot angle range is greatly expanded. And Orbit is not tied to a single operator - you can still achieve great handoff shots to other operators and Orbit will keep tracking.

    Orbit is the world’s first monitor positioning system to ensure the video display on your gimbal is always facing you for optimal framing and operating. It can operate in either manual or automatic mode

    2. How does Orbit work?

    Orbit adjusts the tilt of your monitor to face you, whether you are shooting overhead or at your feet. You can set and use this manually, or use its FollowMe feature to automatically tilt the monitor in real time

    3. What gimbals can be used with Orbit?

    Any gimbal that has an available mounting point for your monitor

    4. What monitors are popular with Orbit?

    6. How does it know where to tilt the monitor?

    Orbit uses a sensor to accurately measure the height of your rig and adjust the monitor accordingly. A short setup phase orients Orbit to your preferred starting point.

    7. How does it take into account how tall I am? Can I use it to manually set the monitor tilt rather than have it automatically follow me?

    Yes. You can use it in full manual or automatic modes.
