Ross Expands Lens Options on Furio Robotic Camera Systems with Chrosziel MagNum LCS

Ottawa, Canada – April 7, 2022 – Ross Furio users can now control almost any lens thanks to the integration with the Chrosziel MagNum Lens Control System.

The MagNum LCS is a flexible lens control system that can be added to just about any lens, whether it is a broadcast lens that does not have full servo control, or a cine lens that would otherwise not be controllable from the Furio system. By presenting a compatible serial lens control interface, it enables full control of Zoom, Focus and Iris from any Furio system, for smooth, accurate preset recalls.

“We’re delighted to offer our customers the flexibility and control provided by the Chrosziel system. This opens up many lens and camera options that were not previously available to our customers.” said Karen Walker, Vice President of Camera Motion Systems, Ross Video. “We are committed to providing our customers with only the best and the Chrosziel system lives up to that expectation.”

Complete packages are available to provide everything you need to add lens control to your Furio system.

The Chrosziel compact and lightweight motors and controllers provide reliable lens control to ensure the fluid, smooth camera moves that have become synonymous with the Ross Furio Robotic Camera Systems.

“Chrosziel looks forward to bringing Ross Furio users the freedom and creativity of using whatever lens and camera they choose to achieve their desired outcomes.” said Timm Stemann, CEO, Chrosziel. “The addition of our reliable, intuitive lens control technology to the proven Ross quality and workflow provides a winning combination for these customers.”
