Instruction Manual



1. How long is the wait/lead time for a new Sniper?
We can ship your purchase within two days of receiving you order and payment.

2. Does it mate up with the Preston handset 3 or C-Motion?
Preston has provided us with the protocol to make the interface cable. We are currently in the  process of making this cable. However with the wireless option of the display, pairing with the Preston is not necessary. We will post when the cable is ready.

As to C-Motion the Ward Sniper Mark 3 mates with their product.

3. Is it waterproof?
As much as a camera is.

4. What”s the total cost of the Mark 3?
It is $8,775 US dollars for the starter package. Or $10,475 US dollars for the Pro Package.

5. Do you rent the Mark 3?
yes we absolutely do, we have it on a number of Episodic TVshows in Los Angeles, CA and New Orleans, LA. Office number is 213.440.0480. Office Manager is Jon.

6. What does it rent for?
We charge $600 US a week per unit. Some owners are charging an additional $25 a day for each wide beam.

7. Is it CE certified?
Yes, The Mark 3 has all pertinent certifications including CE, FCC, and FDA.

8. Does the wireless work with more than one Mark 3 on a set?
Yes, with the advanced communication of the Mark 3, pairing is simple. At start up, have the display hardwired, when the Sniper logo goes away and the numerical data appears, the unit is paired; now you can disconnect and have up to 4 Mark 3’s on a set wireless.

8. What’s an OLED? Also, why did we build the display around it?
220_OLEDAn OLED (organic light-emitting diode) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound which emits light in response to an electric current. This layer of organic semiconductor material is situated between two electrodes. Generally, at least one of these electrodes is transparent. OLEDs are used to create digital displays in devices such as television screens, computer monitors, portable systems such as mobile phoneshandheld games consolesand PDAs.

There are two main families of OLEDs: those based on small molecules and those employing polymers. Adding mobile ions to an OLED creates a light-emitting electrochemical cell or LEC, which has a slightly different mode of operation. OLED displays can use either passive-matrix (PMOLED) or active-matrixaddressingschemes. Active-matrix OLEDs (AMOLED) require a thin film transistor backplane to switch each individual pixel on or off, but allow for higher resolution and larger display sizes.

An OLED display works without a backlight. Thus, it can display deep black levels and can be thinner and lighter than a liquid crystal display (LCD). In low ambient light conditions such as a dark room an OLED screen can achieve a higher contrast ratio than an LCD, whether the LCD uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps or LED backlight. Due to its low thermal conductivity, an OLED typically emits less light per area than an inorganic LED.

We built the display around the OLED because of the necessity for speed; a traditional LED or LCD had too great of lag time in order to construct the numerical data when transferring the information from wireless. Also, it’s too cool for words!


New stuff:

Pairing: The unit comes from our factory already paired with its display. If for some unforeseen reason the unit becomes unpaired, do the following.

Power up Sniper, plug in display cable to display, hit menu button, scroll down to Pair Unit, hit enter, when done, unit says Paired.
