CineTape AIR

The industry standard CINETAPE Measure has a new accessory for wireless communication, the CINETAPE AIR.

The Cinematography Electronics CINETAPE AIR is a two-way wireless communicator that can transmit / receive real-time information from the CINETAPE.

The CINETAPE AIR consists of a Camera Transceiver that plugs directly in to the CINETAPE, and a Mobile Transceiver that is battery powered. They are linked by a 2.4 GHz radio with a solid 650 foot range that is not limited to line-of-sight. Choose from 40 channels for clear connections. Integrated antennas are internal so they are protected from damage.

Both transceivers look similar to the CINETAPE and duplicate most of the controls and functions, making the CINETAPE AIR familiar and intuitive to use. They each have a large red LED display, a red Select/Adjust knob, and LED indicators for Sense and Sensitivity. The Camera Transceiver plugs directly into the CineTape, while the Mobile unit is powered by a small battery. The rechargeable battery locks securely into place and lasts an incredible 30 hours. The CINETAPE AIR works with all CINETAPES, just plug it in.

As with all Cinematography Electronics products, the quality is built in.


Bluetooth iPhone Module

Your iPhone, iPad or iPod becomes part of the CINETAPE System with our Bluetooth Modules and App. Both the Camera and Mobile Transceivers require the Bluetooth Module. The optional modules when ordered with the CINETAPE AIR, provide many additional features. These modules enable your Apple Device to monitor and control the CINETAPE. The App and a couple of taps is all that's required to connect your iPhone to the CINETAPE AIR. It's that simple.


CineTape AIR App

The CINETAPE AIR App downloaded through iTunes, controls many of the CINETAPE functions through your Apple device. The App displays real-time distance readings, Sensitivity adjustments and Brightness levels. It also provides a SYNC function which optimizes signals when two CineTapes are working together.

The App adds the very useful NEAR and FAR distance limit functions that are adjustable over the complete measurement range, and can be independently switched on or off. With this, an over the shoulder shot becomes easy by setting the NEAR distance to just beyond the shoulder. This restricts the focus measurement to the actor facing the camera, not the foreground shoulder.

Imagine all of the other possibilities by linking your CINETAPE AIR and an Apple device.
