The ARRI TRINITY 5-Axis Hybrid Stabilizer Pro Set (Gold Mount) offers the TRINITY Rig, joystick/monitor mount, and a Transvideo StarliteHD5 OLED Monitor with integrated H.264 Recorder.
The modular ARRI TRINITY stabilizer combines classic mechanical stabilization with advanced active electronic stabilization via 32-bit ARM-based gimbal technology. The result is a 5-axis stabilizer which offers fluid, precise movements to permit new creative options for the director and DP. The fluidity is particularly noticeable when shifting from low to high shots and vice versa. A high to low move is sometimes called a drop down. Unrestricted movement and the option to lock the stabilizer into a traditional mode mean you need only one gimbal for all your needs.
The TRINITY will accommodate larger camera or lens payloads (up to 66 lb) yet also offers a compact form when configured with the ARRI ALEXA Mini. Full-size digital cameras such as the ARRI ALEXA SXT are easily accommodated.
Use the TRINITY as a 5-axis rig or upgrade existing stabilizers using a 2-axis head upgrade option. The stabilizer is designed and made in Germany to the highest quality standards.
Simply invert the post to shift from low to high during a shot with uniform movement. A joystick control provides the option to look up or down during this motion as well. This delivers a seamless shot from a low angle to an over the shoulder POV. It also allows the operator to generate a transition around corners in low or high mode then a smooth shift to the alternate view.
These new movements are available when operating the TRINITY in fully stabilized mode. Need a classic stabilizer? Simply set TRINITY to a locked mode where the tilt axis is connected directly to the post in the traditional manner.
Peer around corners by setting the post at 45-degrees and twisting it left or right. This can be accomplished either in low or high mode.
Additional stabilization within the roll axis permits the use of telephoto lenses.
If you need a more traditional operating style, you can lock the TRINITY in position in which the tilt axis is connected to the post in a traditional manner.
Balancing the ARRI TRINITY stabilizer takes no longer than a regular balance procedure, provided you have a symmetrical camera setup.
General Balancing Procedure:
- Focus on achieving a symmetrical camera setup.
- Place the camera in the COG of the TRINITY ring.
- Add at least two batteries to the TRINITY base and switch on the stabilization.
- Move the gimbal about 1.57″ (4 cm) below the TRINITY top stage.
- Bring the post into a horizontal position.
- Shorten or lengthen the post until the rig is absolutely neutral.
- Keep the post horizontal and check if the rig is rolling sideways.
- Use the side-to-side adjustment to prevent the rig from rolling.
- Bring the rig to vertical and use fine adjustment of the battery position to straighten the rig.
- Make sure that the pendulum is positioned directly under the post.
- Perform last checks, fine trim, and you are ready to shoot.
TRINITY was the first hybrid camera stabilizer to combine classic mechanical stabilization with advanced, active electronic stabilization which functions via a 32-bit ARM-based gimbal technology. The combination results in five axes of control and enables uniquely fluid, wide-ranging, and precisely controlled movements for unrestricted shooting and total creative freedom.

ARRI artemis Joystick / Monitor Mount
The ARRI artemis Joystick / Monitor Mount with V-Mount battery mount and docking bracket fits the ARRI TRINITY hybrid stabilizer rig and allows an on-board monitor. It offers thumb control for the tilt access of the TRINITY.
The TRINITY 5-axis gimbal may steal the limelight yet the ARRI artemis Joystick holds its own. Check out the moves you can achieve by watching the NAB 2016 video provided for your reference.
5″ Transvideo StarliteHD5-ARRI OLED Monitor/Recorder
The rugged Transvideo StarliteHD5-ARRI 5″ OLED Monitor with ARRI bus interface and integrated H.264 Recorder supports ARRI camera control via a touch interface. It includes SDI cable and power/communication cable to connect the monitor via EXT connector on either the ARRI ALEXA Mini or the ARRI AMIRA cameras which are available separately.
Constructed of aviation-grade aluminum, this 5″ monitor is the size of a smart phone and weighs less than 0.44 lb (200 g). Use on a rig on camera support rod to record and monitor while shooting.
- Records H.264 rushes on SD cards
- ARRI bus interface (unlike the traditional Transvideo 5″ monitor/recorder)
- Touchscreen interface
- Size: 5.7 x 2.5 x 0.9″
- Weight: 0.4 lb
This monitor/recorder was co-developed by Transvideo and ARRI to merge their functionality. It pairs well with the ARRI TRINITY Rig and the ARRI artemis Joystick.
You can use the ARRI TRINITY as a stand-alone, handheld frame gimbal, without the artemis and other accessories. Set includes an external power cable to facilitate this.
ARRI ALEXA Mini / AMIRA Control Cable 6-Pin
Designed specifically to pair with the TRINITY, this 6-pin control cable includes Lemo 1B 306 to 0B 305 and offers hot swap capabilities.
