Event description


ARRI Certified User Training for the Electronic Control System

This one-day training course covers all aspects of working with the complete ARRI Electronic Control System. You will be given the opportunity to enhance your knowledge of ECS functions and deepen your practical skills. Experienced professionals will detail the many possibilities the system has to offer, giving you expert advice and hands-on training. By the end of the course you will be able to use the system to its full potential in real-world situations.

Who should attend

  • Assistants
  • Operators
  • Cinematographers
  • DITs
  • Rental staff

What you will learn

  • The advantages of the Electronic Control System when used with any camera and any lens.
  • How to use hand units, motor controllers, lens motors, lens data encoders and distance measurers.
  • Hands-on skills with all systems: the universal system, the ALEXA System, the ALEXA Mini system, the single-channel system and the servo-zoom system with focus tracking.
  • The benefits of the integrated ARRI Lens Data System for both on-set and postproduction tasks.


You will be provided with a detailed introduction to ARRI’s sophisticated toolset for wireless remote control of any camera and any lens. Each participant will work directly with the modular ECS system on ALEXA SXT, ALEXA Mini, AMIRA and third-party camera kits, as well as computers loaded with postproduction software. You will set up scalable solutions for any application in order to become familiar with typical on-set situations and to suit individual setups.

A maximum of 12 participants can attend each course, to ensure that everyone gets a sufficiently practical experience of working with the four available camera kits. There will also be an illuminated set for the hands-on exercises.
