Specifications

Accessories

Flexibility to nail the shot!

Your Jigabot EX can be accessorized to meet any number of conditions–so that you can nail your shots!

  • Ball Head Mount

    for Jigabot EX

    $19.95

    The Ball Head accessory is attached to the top of the Jigabot EX in order to expand camera-mounting options. It includes a single 1/4″-20 screw on a ball socket pivot for mounting many types of cameras and lights. The ball socket joint allows a user to set a tilt or pan offset for the camera. Included with each Jigabot EX IR Kit.

  • Top Mount

    for Jigabot EX

    $190

    The Top Mount accessory is attached to the top of the Jigabot EX in order to expand camera-mounting options, and it makes attaching a quick-release plate an easy task. It allows for multiple 1/4″-20 or 3/8″-16 screws to be used to mount your camera or quick-release plate very securely. Made of anodized aluminum.

  • Base Mount

    for Jigabot EX

    $130

    The Base Mount is attached to the bottom of the Jigabot EX in order to make tripod or other mounting options more robust. It provides one standard 1/4″-20 screw-mounting tap, as well as two standard 3/8″-16 screw-mounting taps, so that up to three screws can mount the Jigabot EX firmly onto a tripod, dolly, Steadicam, or other device. The Base Mount is made of anodized aluminum so that it is strong, light-weight, and highly corrosion-resistant. It is attached to the motor-shaft hub using four M4 screws. 

  • Dot Driver Kit

    for Jigabot EX

    $290

    Dots & Driver Kit includes:

    • Four (4) Dots

    • One (1) Dot Driver

    This kit enables an Auto Tracking Head to follow a subject up to hundreds of feet away. Dots attach to clothing with strong and small rare-earth magnets.

    Dots are smaller than the diameter of a finger nail, and they emit the signal that an Auto Tracking Head can sense. Dots are attached to subjects. And when subjects move around, the Auto Tracking Head senses the movement of the Dot and pans & tilts to follow the subject automatically. There are four Dots, and one Dot Driver (power pack) in this kit.

    Dots include small infrared (IR) LEDs, which are powered by Dot Drivers, or power packs. Dots are essential to Auto Tracking, but are small enough not to be noticed. Auto Tracking is valuable whenever you need better quality tracking shots; better framed shots. Auto Tracking provides “insurance” that you will get the shot the first take, or that you get the shot when there is only one take—such as during a live-event shoot.

    Dots include a magnet backing. Thus using the second, included magnet, a dot can be temporarily affixed to an article of clothing worn by a subject.

  • Dot Driver EXL Kit

    for Jigabot EX

    $390

    This Dot Driver Kit includes four of Jigabot’s revolutionary Dot emitters, which are 90% smaller than our previous emitters. This kit also includes a 9-hour IR Dot Driver Power Pack. It is designed as a complete set allowing you to make your subject more visible (and trackable) to Jigabot devices for up to 9 hours. These IR Dot emitters (not shown in this picture) are magnetically backed, allowing for fast attachment to a subject, and for long-duration (3 hour) tracking. They connect to and are powered by the included IR Dot Driver Power module (shown in picture) via two 3.5mm jacks. IR Dot Emitters pulse IR light signals, which are sensed and tracked by a Jigabot. Included: IR Dot Emitters (4), IR Dot Driver Power Pack, micro-USB to USB-A cables to connect the Emitters to the Power Pack, and the Power Pack to the USB wall charger (also included)

  • Lanyand

    This Convenience lanyard is worn around a subject’s neck. It has embedded magnets, enabling quick attachment of Dots that are equally spaced.

With a lanyard and four Dots, a subject can turn and move any direction and the Jigabot EX will still see and follow at least one Dot at all times.

    Teachers & Presenters

    This Convenience lanyard is particularly useful for teachers or presenters who are moving around a classroom or stage, including to and from a white board or touch screen. The magnets serve as a “template” for attaching Dots, and makes it easy to attach Dots.

    Dots can either be placed on the lanyard first, or after the lanyard is placed around the neck or collar. As would be the case without a lanyard, Dots are connected to the Dot driver, where they can be powered ON or OFF.  NOTE: the open end of the lanyard should be in the front of the neck.
