Remote Focus Unit (RFU) for Express

The Remote Focus Unit (RFU) is a small, portable control panel you can use from a remote location, such as in the house, on your studio set or from backstage, with or without a remote monitor. You can control most console functions (not submasters) with an RFU. The console keypad and RFU are able to operate simultaneously. Changes made from both console and RFU are displayed immediately on both the console monitor and the RFU.
