Bitbox Demos available at booth #845 @Midwest and French Streets

Helping movie industry technicians deliver better quality
footage more efficiently, motion picture connectivity co. Bit Part is showcasing its new remote
camera control radio, bitbox, at the Cine Gear Expo in LA (booth #845 @Midwest and French
Streets). Bitbox offers interference-free camera control from ultra-long ranges to help
cinematographers, DITs, and ACs save valuable time, money and labor throughout the entire
production process.

Whether it’s filming in challenging lighting conditions or shooting from atop a large crane,
bitbox’s 915 MHz system can remotely control filters, camera settings, live color grading and
more in virtually any environment. Bitbox features patent-pending technology to help camera
technicians remotely manage their shots from thousands of feet away with a simple push-button
interface and sub-five second boot-up time. Bitbox does all of this without the challenges of
spectrum interference, the need for mesh systems, or the need for expensive and complicated
DIY solutions. The device is the only solution of its kind that’s custom-designed for the cinema
industry and is supported by more than a year of field testing.

“In an industry where precision and speed is everything, remote camera control has historically
been a formidable challenge for film tech. professionals,” said Damon Meledones, co-founder of
Bit Part. “From spectrum overload to the limitations of closed systems, the hurdles are endless.
With its unparalleled ability to penetrate objects, ensure long-range connectivity, and deliver
instant boot times, bitbox is an industry game-changer. It empowers film technicians to
concentrate on their true passion: the art of filmmaking.”

Bitbox works by leveraging existing networks and operates seamlessly by mimicking the
functionality of plugging into a switch for both connected devices, providing a uniform
experience at each end of the connection with zero wireless configuration. Film technicians then
simply set their camera’s IP to match their existing network setup. Bitbox can be deployed
across a wide range of cameras and accessories from brands including Sony, Arri, RED and
Vision Research (makers of Phantom). Bitbox units can be reserved now and will be available in
the second half of 2024.

“I recently demoed BitBox in single and multiple camera situations and was beyond impressed
with the connectivity,” said Mike Nichols, a DIT and bitbox beta tester. “We had a rig flying on a
CableCam in an 18K seat arena working flawlessly. Equally impressive was the multicam set up
in a smaller, more densely packed venue in terms of radio noise, and it was still reliably solid. I
couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming release.”
