Its 1st new product since moving to Salt Lake City from Argentina, Maxicrane’s LANC Wireless Controller uses Bluetooth & hardware to deliver fingertip control

The Maxicrane LANC Wireless Controller allows videographers to wirelessly control essentially all functions needed to use select Sony, Canon and JVC camcorders with our device and our smartphone app.”

— Hector Marchitelli, President, Maxicrane

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SALT LAKE CITY — November 13, 2018 — Maxicrane today announced its Maxicrane LANC Wireless Controller™, a hardware/software bundle that provides professional and “prosumer” videographers and cinematographers with wireless control of close to 200 camcorders from Sony, Canon, and JVC.

Maxicrane’s LANC Wireless Controller works with any camcorder that utilizes the LANC protocol (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LANC), a hardware/software communication protocol invented by Sony that is also known as Control-L. The Maxicrane LANC Wireless Controller is a small hardware device that includes a bidirectional Bluetooth antenna, weighs 2.0 ounces, measures 0.5×1.0x2.0-inches and is attached to a camcorder via a 2.5mm 3-conductor headphone jack at the end of a 6.5-inch long cable.

After downloading the free companion Maxicrane LANC Wireless Controller software app from Apple’s iTunes App Store or Google Play onto their smartphone, users can then have wireless, fingertip control of their camcorders with such functions as Start, Stop, Zoom, Focus, Iris, Display, Shutter and White Balance.

“Wireless camcorder control has been virtually impossible in the past, something that truly limits the capabilities of professional and prosumer videographers,” said Hector Marchitelli, President and Founder of Maxicrane. “Such limitations disappear with the Maxicrane LANC Wireless Controller as videographers can now control essentially all functions needed to shoot video and can do so from across the room directly on our smartphone app.”
