Robots

Tasty can produce dynamic astounding visuals only made possible by the meticulous precision of our state-of-the-art Motion Control and High Speed Robotics equipment.

We own two of the world’s industry-standard MRMC high-speed cinema robots, BOLT and BOLT Model Mover.

We also now have MRMC’s newest portable robot: Cinebot MINI !

All of these robots have been created to achieve precise multi-axis camera moves with complete control.

Tasty is one of the few companies in the Southern Hemisphere with a broad offering of motion control robots as well as 12m of engineered track for the BOLT. All three robots are controlled by the industry leading software, Flair.

This award winning technology is ready to come to you or you can come to us for shots not achievable by any other method.

Compact, Tactile & Easy to Transport.
Excellent for location shoots.

Fastest & Most Elite Cinema Robot Available. 

Syncs with the bolt to achieve breathtaking results.

Compact, Tactile & Easy to Transport
Excellent for Location Shoots

The Cinebot MINI is our most portable Flair controlled robot available, allowing even more creators the ability to capture shots with the movement and precision of robotic technology.

The Cinebot MINI is a more agile and location-friendly robot than its larger BOLT counterpart, offering greater portability (it easily fits into a van), automated focus tracking, operates with the industry standard Flair software, a more economical hire rate, plus the ability to run on battery or 10amp house power (no need for three phase!).

These benefits all combine to make the Cinebot MINI the perfect robotic companion out on location and for non-high speed applications.

BOLT

The Fastest & Most Elite Cinema Robot Available

The BOLT High-Speed Camera Robot is the fastest of its kind – capturing images in crisp focus that would be impossible by hand or any other method. The precision cinema robot adds an entirely new perspective to filming – whether shooting commercials, tabletop work, film or television. 

The BOLT camera robot moves from standstill to full high-speed motion and back to a complete stop in fractions of a second – capturing the fastest action with pinpoint accuracy. The precision robotic arm is capable of horizontal and vertical movement speeds of up to 2 metres per second, and 180-degrees of rotation in 1 second. In summary, the BOLT cinema robot can keep up with almost anything!

MODEL MOVER

Syncs with the bolt to achieve breathtaking results

Our BOLT Model Mover is an extremely versatile lightweight 6-axis high-speed arm capable of full manipulation of products with repeat pass precision, timing and triggering capabilities.

Our Model Mover can be synchronised with our other robots using industry-leading motion control software, Flair, to enable full manipulation of products with repeat pass precision, timing and triggering capabilities.

The model is designed to be set-up quickly and can be mounted to a table or set on the floor to shoot classic liquid pours, stirs, whirls and splashes or mount utensils like forks, spoons or even sports accessories such as shoes or rackets to get the most dynamic high-end shots.
