Rent Arri LCUBE CUB-1 in New York City.
The LCUBE CUB-1 is a miniature signal converter that converts LBUS protocols to serial protocols and vice versa. The UDM-1 can be connected to the ALEXA Mini via the LCUBE and a daisy chain of one or more cforce motors, delivering distance readings to the WCU-4, allowing focus tracking in the same way as is possible with other ALEXA cameras or the Universal Motor Controller UMC-4.
Connecting the UDM-1 to the ALEXA Mini is just the first production advantage of the LCUBE. In future it will support various other serial protocols, permitting the latest ARRI ECS accessories to communicate with third-party cameras.
