Angénieux Servo Unit (ASU)

The Angénieux Servo Unit is compatible with all Angénieux lightweight zoom lenses :
Optimo 15-40, 28-76 & 45-120, Optimo Style 16-40 & 30-76, Optimo Anamorphic 56-152 2S & 30-72 2S (and also Optimo DP 16-42 & 30-80).
It allows Zoom, Focus and Iris control and generates lens meta data based on Cooke protocol. The lens meta data can be displayed but also recorded in part to the PL mount Cooke interface. Script supervisors no longer need to manually write down lens setting for every frame shot.
The ASU offers several configurations in Broadcast or Cinema modes (shoulder use, on tripod, crane, Steadycam or in gyrostabilized gimball). Due to a minimum number of connection cables and motor modules, the ASU allows for a very fast setup.
  • Integrated servo motor unit that bolts directly onto Angénieux lightweight zoom lenses
  • Focus / T-stop / Zoom remotely controlled via various wired/wireless devices
  • Faster setup due to minimum number of connection cables and motor modules
  • ASU fixing position can be selected from 8 angles at 45 degrees increment depending on camera configuration
  • Generates lens metadata based on Cooke protocol
  • Dedicated /i output port facilitates integration with motion-control systems, DOF display on monitors, etc.
