Bolt Jr+ Cinema Robot
Mocolab presents Philadelphia’s first robotic motion control system from world leader Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC)
The MRMC Bolt platform offers 7-axes of camera control.
6-axes of movement are provided by the robot arm, and the 7th dimension when combined with precision track.
The only comparable experience would be manipulating a camera inside 3D software.
If it’s precise, high-speed, and repeatable moves you need, the Bolt is the tool for the job.
Proven from Hollywood films to award winning commercials, and now available locally.

Design and program moves before the shoot day with Mocolab previz services. A Mocolab operator can consult with the Director, DP or agency to design camera moves as part of pre-production. This animatic can be presented to all stakeholders for sign off prior to production. On the day, the operator will load the move and tweak as desired.
The pinpoint accuracy of the Bolt is allows frame accurate repeat passes critical for VFX work
Repeatable passes streamline complex effects.
- Layer multiple takes to clone actors or props
- Shoot different takes at different frame rates to create out of body effects
- Interface with Unreal Engine and LED Walls to create a virtual set
- Export camera positioning data to Maya
