MotorPod-LANC: A special MotorPod for Sony and Canon owners

PowerPod

The MotorPod-LANC is a compact motorized base that pans and tilts a camcorder under your computer's control. In addition, the MotorPod-LANC includes technology to control optical zoom and focus via the LANC connector found on some Sony and Canon camcorders.

The MotorPod-LANC's combination of features make it a great choice for Sony owners interested in using their camcorders for computerized surveillance and webcamming. Robotic pan and tilt mean you conduct surveillance over a large space with a single camera that you point at different spots as needed. Or, use it as a hi-res webcam and move around the room freely while the camcorder follows you. Optical zoom control keeps the video quality sharp and professional, no matter how far away the subject is from the camera.

Features

The MotorPod-LANC has all the features of the regular MotorPod, but also includes technology to control the optical zoom of Sony camcorders via LANC. MotorPod-LANC handles camcorders up to 2 lbs in weight and connects to your computer via USB. Your camcorder connects separately via Firewire.

The MotorPod-LANC lets you:

  • Turn and swivel your camcorder on the fly from your PC
  • Controls lens zoom and focus from your PC
  • Remotely control motion and zoom over the Internet
  • Detect and track motion
  • Move through a series of preset positions
  • Capture video to disk
  • Capture still images at regular intervals
  • View captured images over the Internet

What is LANC?

LANC is a connector found on Sony camcorders, and some camcorders from other manufacturers, that can accept lens control instructions. To check if your camcorder has the LANC connector that makes zoom control possible, look for for a small jack similar to a headphone connector, usually labelled with a stylized 'L.'
