We were able to get up close and personal with Syrp's new Magic Carpet Pro slider and Genie II motion control device at NAB. 

The Magic Carpet Pro is extendable, can handle up to 50 lbs., has a quick-release system, and has a hidden flywheel built directly on the carriage, which can be switched on and off. This feature makes slow camera movements with heavy cameras a breeze. The 2' short track costs $989, the 3' medium track costs $1099, and the long track kit, which comes with 2' short and 3' medium tracks is $1469.

Complete reconfiguring its popular motion control device, Syrp has added a pan/tilt module and a linear module to Genie II. It can handle a 15 lb. payload, has removable batteries, an integrated joystick that allows you to complete camera moves by hand, and has a max speed of 3.2 feet (1 meter) in 6 seconds, which is about 4x faster than its predecessor. The linear module costs $899, the pan/tilt module costs $1599, and both together cost $2498.

Both the Magic Carpet Pro and Genie II will be shipping in June.
