JLCooper SloMo Pro

I really like a quality, tactile control interface. Buttons with a good action. A smooth, solid T-Bar. Jog/Shuttle dial that is precise and well weighted. While a lot of affordable options are out there for disk recording and playback, the control of these devices leaves a lot to be desired. It's possible I'm a little old fashioned, but web interfaces and little front panel dials just don't stand up to the demands of high pressure events and environments.

JLCooper SloMoPro is a next generation controller that makes simultaneous control of up to four professional file based video recorders lightning fast and easy, and ensures reliable and consistent results. It’s the perfect controller for events, remote trucks, sports facilities, game review, studio and post production.

SloMoPro Controls most professional RS-422 file-based recorders including: AJA Video Systems Ki Pro, Atomos Shogun Studio, Blackmagic Design HyperDeck, Video Devices PIX and more!

Or get the USB version for controlling your software servers, like vMix Replay!
