Control units for MTS stage- and studio rigging devices

Time is money – this is the motto of studio operations more than anywhere else. Effective and fast transitions between scenes are also in demand in stage technology. For both areas, the systems can be adapted quickly and easily using the various control and automation solutions developed by MTS Media Technical System.

MTS offers a wide range of control options for all types of rigging equipment. The portfolio ranges from simple remote controls for individual lifting devices over basic controls to fully automated studio control systems. The individually adaptable control unit can be fitted according to the respective requirements.

All control units communicate with the decentralized motor control electronics. These in turn are attached directly to the respective lifting device and equipped with the required function blocks.

Customer-specific system configurations enable the perfect control solution for every area of application.
