Super Cyclops

Super Cyclops is the worlds largest and most advanced motion control system.  Situated within Green stage a purpose built effects stage within the Black Island studios complex at Park Royal West London. Cyclops speed and range of movement are unsurpassed by any other motion control system currently on the market.  Super Cyclops has a maximum operating height of 20ft (6 meters) and a reach of 13ft ( 3.9 Meters) with track speeds in excess of 3m per second. In its standard configuration Super Cyclops comes with 40ft (12 Meters) of custom precision rail and hydraulics which allow the system to move and be re positioned anywhere within the stage.  It also has the added advantage of a separate and longer 60ft (18 meters) of rail where longer tracking shots may be required.

Super Cyclops also comes complete with its own unique universal head which is fast rigid and able to accommodate all standard production cameras including traditional 35mm film camera digital red, Alexa, Phantom, Sony  as well as more specialised camera’s such as StereoScopics and DSLR.

Additional benefits of working with Super Cyclops;

CGI Interface.

Eiger Arm
Super Cyclops has also been specifically adapted to take the “ Eiger “carbon fibre crane arm which once attached increases its already impressive operating envelope to a max height of 30ft (9.1 Meters)
