Harnessing the power of air
Pressurised air travels at 300+ mph through the Prodigy and provides a barrier over the entire frame with no dead zones. The downward force is identical to gravity and natural rainfall and particle movement.
The special piece of glass is optically clear with no effect on image quality or exposure, and has excellent impact resistance. Any water or liquid on the surface slides off and doesn’t bead up after being treated with a superhydrophobic coating.
Saves time on set
The Air Head doesn’t emit any heat, so there’s no fogging on the lens or filters. This also saves time because you don’t have to unbag the camera and lens to clear the lens before shooting. Plastic bagging is easily secured to waterproof the camera and other electronics because of the flat sides.
Industry Standard 24V Power
The Prodigy is powered by 24V. An industry-standard 2-pin LEMO input with built-in automatic polarity switching prevents any chance of shorting out and damaging the compressor when using different cable standards.
The power input allows for a voltage range of 21-33V, ensuring reliability and adaptability. In case of any power issues, the intuitive warning light illuminates, indicating potential issues and enabling quick troubleshooting.
In situations where the voltage goes outside of the recommended range, your power warning symbol will illuminate. An amber light will signal if it drops below 21V or exceeds 33V. Should the voltage drop below 19V or be above 35V, the warning light will turn red, and the Prodigy will shut off.
Built on the Misfit Kick
The Air Head can also be used as a standalone matte box and builds on the foundation set by the Misfit Kick. The large field of view makes it ideal for wide-angle lenses, with the Reveal stage delivering the third stage without the need of any additional accessories.
It’s light enough to use in a clip-on configuration or with rod supports on a 15mm LWS or 15/19 Studio setup.
The top flag is made of carbon fiber, which aids with flare control and adds further protection from the weather.
Waterproof tested to IP66 & CE Certified
The Prodigy has undergone rigorous waterproof testing, achieving an IP66 rating. Not only is it completely dust-proof, but it can withstand powerful water jets without a problem. The only higher rating is reserved for full submersion. Experience worry-free adventures, rain or shine, with the trusted protection of the Prodigy.
Furthermore, it has obtained CE certification, demonstrating its full compliance with an extensive range of vital regulations throughout the entire European Union.
Suitable for Handheld Operators
The Prodigy certainly doesn’t weigh you down, making it perfect, even for handheld use. Plus, with the option to mount the compressor at a distance from the Air Head, you can create a setup that is both comfortable and efficiently balanced.
Here are some typical operating weights:
Matte box configuration with Air Head, top flag & two filter trays – 1.2 kg (2.6 lb)
Prodigy configuration – Air Head, top flag, two filter trays, 15mm support, hose and compressor – 2.4 kg (5 lb)
Easy to maintain
Constructed of carbon fiber, high-grade aluminum, and stainless steel, making it extremely durable, rugged, and waterproof. It can endure any harsh conditions in either hot or cold climates. It won’t rust or corrode
When you need to replace your glass, it’s simple and quick to do so. Spare glass is accessible if it gets damaged or breaks. Similarly, the air filter is a drop-in replacement requiring no special tools.
Built for rigging
The Compressor has a variety of rigging possibilities, featuring helicoil reinforced threads to connect clamps and brackets.
When it comes to high-risk stunts, the priority is always safety. For added security, attach a safety line using the tether points on the Air Head and Compressor.
The Compressor can be positioned anywhere on the rig using the 50cm (20”) or 75cm (30”) long hoses. The bayonet quick-release connectors ensure a leak-free connection.
A longer 100cm (40”) hose is available for times when you want to place the compressor further away.
An industry-standard 3-pin Fischer Run/Stop port allows the Prodigy to be triggered using compatible hand units and remotes.
User-Friendly Control Panel
The buttons on the compressor’s control panel are big and well-lit, making them easy to operate even with gloves on.
The warning lights will light up to indicate the operator how to troubleshoot any problems, thanks to built-in error detection. Future firmware updates may be completed by the user without requiring the unit to be sent in using the Type-C USB connection.
