Elevating robotics to a higher track15 September 2017
A robotic servo-controlled pan/tilt camera support system, a range of elevating pedestals, and a camera track system are among the new camera automation products being introduced by Telemetrics at IBC that are suited to space-limited automated production studios and virtual set systems.
The PT-HP-S5 Servo Pan/Tilt Head is a new lower cost addition to its fifth generation S5 camera support systems. It is targeted at smaller production studios with limited budgets that still need unique point-of-view shots. It can accommodate any box-style camera and lens up to 18kg and is fully UHD-ready with embedded fibre connectivity as standard.
The new Televator EP7 Series Elevating Pedestal is designed for greater stability and come in three sizes (EP7-600, EP7-700 and EP7-1000), to accommodate virtually any camera (up to 60kg) and a wide range of height positions (68-146cm, 78-176cm or 108-266cm respectively).
The EP7 allows users to maximise available space while facilitating more creative shots that enhance production values for any type of project.
Also new is the TG4, the latest in the TeleGlide family of camera track systems. It features a redesigned, streamlined trolley and track, which minimises space requirements, and also includes tracks that can be bent down to a sharp radius for tight curves. Its Triple
Balance System provides increased stability and it can be floor or ceiling mounted. TG4 is fully servo-controlled, providing accurate pre-set positioning and repeatable motion.
