Read and Adjust CineTape measurements and settings directly on your Apple device.

The official Cinematography Electronics CineTape AIR App is here. The App connects the CineTape AIR to newer iPhones, iPads and iPods. Our App is designed with the same simplicity as our industry standard CineTape.

This App requires the CineTape AIR hardware available from Cinematography Electronics.

The App displays the measured distance beautifully in easy to read large red characters that mimic the CineTape. As a reference, the set units of Feet or Meters, is shown underneath.

Other App features include adjustable distance limits, Sensitivity and Brightness levels.

The adjustable NEAR and FAR distance limits are shown in medium size yellow numerals. To change the NEAR or FAR limit setting, tap on the number and a popup adjustment wheel appears. Roll the wheel to fine tune the distance limit. Tap the number again to set the distance. Both the Near and Far settings work in a similar manner. Each can be set and switched on or off independently. This makes it possible to preset limits and activate or deactivate them during a shot.

The CineTape Sensitivity also can be changed directly from the App. Tap on the dotted line in the Sensitivity section to increase or decrease the Sensitivity. Each dot represents a 5% change. The new Sensitivity is displayed as a percentage along with the graphical dot representation. To confirm a change, the red distance display also momentarily flashes the changed setting.

The Brightness of the CineTape Measure is also adjustable from the App. Tap on the dotted line to increase or decrease the CTM Brightness.
