Introduction
4. Introduction
General Description:
The WRC-2 is a modern and user friendly remotecontrol and program unit for all new-generation
ARRIFLEX and ARRICAM cameras. It combines the
functionality of the RCU-1 and WRC-1. Beyond that,
the WRC-2 provides unique new features and due to
the touchscreen user interface, remote controlling a
camera was never faster and easier.
The range of functions is automatically adapted to
the attached camera. Since the functionality of the
WRC‑2 is software based and therefore expandable,
we are looking on the most flexible Remote Control
Unit, ARRI has ever provided.
Setups:
In the standard version, the WRC-2 enables the user
to remotely control
- the camera speed
- the shutter angle of the mirror shutter
providing a wide range of compensation options for
constant exposure via an easy an intuitive to use
software.
10
Automatic xposure Calculation:
Furthermore the WRC-2 automatically calculates the
correct exposure value for given ramps (speed, iris
or shutter) based on the measurements made by the
DOP on the set. This is a new and unique feature, only
available through the WRC-2. The complete ramp
data can now easily be entered in the clear arranged
Ramp Menu, guiding the user through the sometimes
very complex process of programming a ramp. Thus,
the WRC-2 is a very powerful tool that saves time
and provides a new level of exposure‑safety and
precision.
Simulator Software:
To make yourself familiar with the unit before using it
on the filmset, we offer a WRC-2 simulator software,
that can be downloaded via our website.
Upload new Software Modules:
New released software modules or software updates
can be uploaded just by connecting an USB stick to
the WRC‑2 mini-USB port.
Introduction
Ramp Compensation with and without LDS Lenses:
The WRC-2 can automatically compensate speed
and iris ramps. In order to compensate the ramps by
the iris, a CLM-1 or CLM-2 motor has to be attached
to the camera and the mounted lens has to be
selected in the WRC-2. This is done automatically
when using LDS lenses (Master Prime or LDS Ultra
Prime). For other lenses an Iris Table can be easily
created following a few steps in the Lens Manager.
The lens can then be stored in the WRC-2 internal
memory.
Modular System
The WRC-2 works with the ARRI Wireless Remote
Control system and attaches to the Wireless Main
Unit WMU‑2 and WMU-3.
It can be wired to an ARRIFLEX or ARRICAM either
directly or via a Wireless Handgrip Attachmend
WHA–2 or WHA-3 using a standard LCS cable.
The knob module can be removed to keep the unit as
small as possible, if desired.
11
Setup
5. Setup
5.1 WRC-2 in wireless mode
Transmitting:
In order to be able to use the WRC-2 in wireless
mode, it must be mounted on a Wirless Main
Unit (WMU-2 or WMU-3) as a transmitter. The
Main Unit supplies the WRC-2 with power and
establishes the radio link with the camera.
Up to three WMU can be used simultaneously,
therefore the WRC-2 can be controled by one
operator while e.g. the focus unit can be controlled
by another operator. Please refer to the LCS
instruction manual for further details.
Receiving:
On the camera side, a receiver is needed. When
using ARRICAM cameras, the receiver is built
in the Lens Data Box. When using 435, the
receiver is the Universal Radio Module (URM-3).
This device has to be mounted to the Function
Expansion Module (FEM-1 or FEM-2) When
using other cameras, the Universal Radio Module
(URM-3) can be used as a receiver.
12
● Switch off the Wirless Main Unit WMU by pressing
the ON/OFF button.
● With the wide black pin pointing forward, insert the
WRC-2 into the free space on the WMU. Then press
the WRC-2 onto the WMU until the module audibly
snaps into position.
● Select the same radio channel on the WMU and on
the receiver (e.g. Lens Data Box)
Setup
5.2 Mounting the WRC-2 on
the WMU-3 or WMU-2
Note:
The WRC-2 can not be mounted on a WMU-3
together with other modules without using the
Wireless Expansion Bracket (WEB-3).
Note:
Do not seperate the hand control units from one
another when they are switched on, as this can
result in randomly set lens limits.

13.1 Lens Manager Menu Functions
In order to compensate ramps via the iris or to display
iris values in the Camera Control Menu, one of the
following two requirements must be fulfilled:
1.) Using a Lens with Lens Data System:
In this case the iris information will be transfered via a
Lens Control System (LCS) Unit to the camera.
LCS Units are e.g.: Lens Data Box, FEM-2, UMC-3 or
ARRIFLEX 416 Plus (electronics side cover). Therefore
creating an Iris Table is not necessary.
To register and calibrate the lens:
● Connect a lens motor to the LCS Unit.
● Start the calibration process via the „CAL“ Button in
the Lens Manager Menu.
Alternatively the CAL button on the WHA-2/3 or
WMU‑2/3 can be used. If no ramp compensation is
intended, the iris ring of the LDS ring can be turned
to enable the display of the iris values in the Camera
Control Menu.
2.) Using a Lens without LDS:
In this case, an Iris Table for the Non‑LDS‑Lens has
to be created manually in the Lens Manager Menu and
36
loaded into the LDB or Universal Remote Controller
(UMC-3). See Chapter 13.2.
All created Iris Tables will be stored permanently in the
internal flash‑memory of the WRC-2 and simultaneously
displayed in the User Iris List for a quick access.
Iris Tables can be removed from the User Iris List for
a better clarity, however, they will remain stored in the
User Folder System from where they can be added to
the User Iris List again.

Note: Alternatively the buttons
on WMU-2/3 or WHA-2/3 can be
used.
● Click Toggle if the iris is not on
the open position.
Step 5
Name the Iris Table
● Make sure the iris is set to the T‑Stop marked by the yellow
arrow (e.g. f1.9). Use the knob of the WRC-2 to adjust the
position. Alternatively you can use the slider on the bottom
of the screen.
● Click „Set“ to assign the postions to the iris.
● Go ahead like this until all T‑Stops are assigned. If necessary,
click on „Back“ or „Next“ to reassign the positions.
● Set at least five T-Stops. When the yellow arrow is at the last
position, click next to finish the process.
● Enter an appropriate name for the
iris table including lens type, focal
lenght and some last digits of the
serial number.
(e.g. „UP_50mm_1234)
● Click „Finish“
● To activate the Iris Table, go to the
Lens Manager Menu and load the
Iris Table (see Chapter 13)

In the Ramp Control Menu speed and shutter ramps
can be programmed. After enabling the Iris Control,
also iris ramps can be performed. If a speed ramp is
to be compensated by iris and shutter simultaneously,
the ratio of both values can be mixed via the
Compensation Mix Slider.
The actual status and position of the ramp is shown
in the Ramp Display by the yellow arrows. When
the ramp is performed, the arrows move along the
ramp display from the start values to the end values
providing a clear situational awareness of the running
ramp.
The Exposure Calculator helps calculating the working
T-stop. Simply measure the light on the set with your
light meter and standard settings (e.g. 24fps, 250ASA)
and enter the measured T-stop in the calculator (Tstop input window). The working T-stop that has to be
set on the lens will then be computed and displayed
in the Ramp Display. When the Iris Control is enabled,
the iris will be set automatically to the correct value via
the lens motor.

● Select the desired speed ramp function by clicking on
the corresponding control button. (e.g. „Speed“)
● Click on the start and end values of the ramp display
to edit the values. (e.g. 6fps and 96fps)
The ramp will always be perfomed from top to bottom.
Therefore in this example the upper value will be
the initial camera speed (6fps). The yellow marker
displays the current camera speed.
● Click in the Ramp Time Window to select the timing
control:
„Time“
= A user defined ramp time can be set
„Time min“ = The fastest ramp will be computed and set by the WRC-2 automatically.
„Knob“
= The ramp can be controlled manually
via the WRC-2 Knob / Handwheel.

- To compensate the Speed Ramp refer to 14.3
- To change the Ramp Direction refer to 14.5
43
Ramp Control Menu
14.3 Exposure Compensation
Via the Ramp Menu three different
compensation methods can be selected:
exposure
1.) Compensation via the Mirror Shutter
The camera has to be outfitted with an electronic
adjustable mirror shutter.
● Check the compensation box of the shutter ramp
display. The shutter values will be computed by the
WRC-2. (e.g. 11,25 to 180 degrees)
2.) Compensation via the iris
A CLM-1 or CLM-2 motor needs to be mounted to the
camera and an iris table must be activated. Refer to
chapter 15.
● Check the „Iris“ box of the iris ramp display. The iris
values will be computed by the WRC–2
3.) Mixed Compensation via Shutter and Iris
● Check both the „Iris“ box and the „Shutter“ box of
the ramp display. Use the Compensation Mix Slider
to adjust the ratio between iris and shutter in 5%
steps. To adjust the values in 1% steps, use the
Arrow Buttons on the WRC-2.
44
Ramp Control Menu
Red values:
The ramp calculation can result in values that can not
be accepted by the currently used camera or lens, e.g.
T-stop 32, or 10degree shutter angle.
In this case the value will be displayed in red.
Change the basic values, e.g. the speed, to keep the
calculated values in an acceptable range.
Example:
A speed change from 1 to 128 fps with shutter
compensation only is not possible since for
compensation seven T-stops are necessary (1-2-48-16-32-64-128fps), but the shutter can only provide
four stops (180° -90°-45°-22,5°-11,25°). To solve the
problem, either reduce the speed range or enable the
iris compensation additionally.
The exposure calculation is a very powerful feature of
the WRC-2. It reduces the workload of a ramp exposure
calculation to a simple transfer of the exposure value
from a light meter to the WRC-2.
Once the working f-stop for a shot is determined by the DP
and entered in the WRC-2, all exposure compensations
will be calculated automatically.
To Enable the Exposure Calculation:
● In the Ramp Menu click on „Options“
● Check „Enable“ in the Exposure Meter Window
● Enter speed and shutter values of the exposure meter
that is used on the set. (values will be stored)
● Click „Exit“ to go back to the Ramp Menu
Ramp Options Menu
Ramp Control Menu
14.4 Exposure Calculation
Use the Exposure Calculation:
● Measure the light to determine the working f-stop.
● Click on the „Exposure Meter“ Window and enter the
working f-stop by using the sliders.
● Read the calculated f-stop in the Iris Display and set
the iris value on the lens.
Note: Since there is no compensation selected,
the current settings will lead to a two stop
underexposure. See the Exp. Diff. (Exposure
Difference) indicator window.
Ramp Control Menu
45
Ramp Control Menu
14.5 Compensation Free Style
After selecting a compensation method for a desired ramp
(e.g. 100-25fps) the WRC-2 will compute the necessary
compensation values (e.g. 180°-90° and T2.8-T4). The
„Compensation Free Style“ mode enables the user to
edit all values of a ramp independently, regardless of the
exposure compensation. With the „Exposure Meter“ on,
the ramp entry values (e.g. 100fps, 180°, T2.8) will still
be computed but they can now also be changed. The
resulting over- oder underexposure will be displayed by
the „Exp. Diff“ indicator (Exposure Difference)
Enable „Compensation Free Style“
● In the Ramp Control Menu, click on „Options“ to enter
the Ramp Options Menu.
● Activate „Comp Free Style“
● Click „Exit“ to go back to the Ramp Control Menu
● In the Ramp Control Menu, click on the desired value
(in our example we want to change the T-stop value
from T4 to T8)
Note the „Exp. Diff“ (Exposure Difference) indicator. After
changing the f-stop from T4 to T8, the indicator will show
„-2.0“. That means, with the current setting, the result
will be a two stop underexposure.

14.7 Ramp Example
Even though the WRC-2 can compute the correct
exposure values, a proper planning of the ramp is
recommended to understand and follow the calculations.
For this example we assume the following:
- The director wants to change the camera speed
between 3 and 24 fps manually.
- The exposure should be compensated by iris and
shutter simultaneously.
- Set up the WRC-2 and acquire the correct f-stop.
The WRC-2 could be set up as follows:
1.) In the Main Menu click on „Lens Manger“. Make
sure that the used lens is loaded and calibrated (see
Chapter 15) otherwise the iris compensation will not
be available.
2.) Start the Ramp Control Menu (from Main Menu).
3.) Click on „Options“ and enable the Ramp and
Exposure Meter Controls. Measure the light to
acquire the working f-stop and enter the value in the
yellow window. Make sure your lightmeter is set to
1/50 second or 24/25fps. Click EXIT to confirm.
4.) Click on „Speed“ and enter the start value „3“ and
the end value „24“ frames per second.
5.) Select „Knob“ from the Ramp Time Window to
enable the manual speed change.
6.) Activate „Shutter“ and „Iris“ compensation and
move the slider in the middle position to mix the
compensation ratio to 50% Iris and 50% Shutter.
Use the Arrow Buttons to adjust in small steps.
7.) Confirm the working f-stop or enter a new one if
the light has changed.
8.) Start the camera by pressing the RUN button and
control the speed change by turning the knob.
