Rise of the news robots9 September 2016
For the first time, Camerobot Systems is presenting its ceiling-mounted camera robotic system for broadcast automation.
The company claimed it has developed a system that will bring broadcast studios to a new level, saying the Camerobot system facilitates a modern, interesting and dynamic studio. Virtual reality during movements, silent operation and an easy to use graphical user interface enable high-quality daily broadcasting, said the company.
Peter Pühringer, division manager, Camerobot Systems, said: “Following the successful installation of Camerobot in the news studio of NDR in Hamburg, the demand for robotic camera systems, especially ceiling mounted, has increased significantly. By mounting the Camerobot to the ceiling there is space available while providing more flexibility for use of additional studio equipment.”
The extension of the robot’s working space by a linear track provides more possibilities for accurate positioning of the camera in space, said the firm.
