ARRI Introduces Stabilized Digital Encoder Head

ARRI has introduced the DEH-1, a completely digital encoder head that can communicate through LBUS to the SRH-3 Stabilized Remote Head.

Specifically designed to operate ARRI’s remote-controlled Stabilized Remote Head (SRH-3), the DEH-1 is a fluid head that interfaces with any Mitchell flat base tripod or support. Based on Cartoni’s technology, ARRI’s DEH-1 is the first digital encoder head that communicates through the LBUS protocol.

The DEH-1 is ideal for a variety of applications from broadcast to documentary to feature film productions. Camera operators will find the traditional fluid head application intuitive and straightforward. The adjustable drag system allows for precise pan and tilt movements. The DEH-1 is an alternative to hand wheels or the joystick.

The new digital encoder head is available with a complete set of Master Grips (focus and zoom) or with an OCU-1 combined with Master Grip zoom rocker. The LBUS protocol allows for the Master Grips or the OCU-1 to be connected to the DEH-1 with one cable.

The DEH-1 also connects directly to the SRH-3’s remote control, with a single LBUS cable. All the values and parameters of the DEH-1, the Master Grips and the OCU-1 are managed using the touch panel of the SRH-3 remote control. The entire system can be controlled centrally using a single device.
