MRMC Launch Bolt JR Cinebot

Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) announces Bolt JR, a new, smaller, lightweight and compact version of the company’s Bolt cinebot.

The Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) Bolt JR is available in both pedestal and on-track versions providing an arm reach of 1.2 metres and can move high-speed on-track at over 3m per second with a camera payload up to 12kg. The high-speed, compact 6-axes camera robot arm is specially developed for film studios, photographic studios and for table-top work where studio space and budget are a key criterion. Being small and lightweight, Bolt JR is also easily maneuverable and transportable.

Camera robots can empower a camera or control operator and photography director to get the camera exactly where it needs to be for unique camera shots. This might include tight camera angles, special effects or to capture all the fast action and drama of a scene.


The Bolt JR is controlled and programmed using the MRMC Flair system. Bolt JR with Flair offers a wide variety of automated functions and precision repeat functions. For complete flexibility, Bolt JR can also automate lighting, trigger synchronized SFX timecodes, rig movement or model movement.
