Silent, but deadly accurate16 September 2017
The MRMC Whisper Head robotic pan/tilt/zoom unit is claimed to be not only completely silent, but also very fast, with pinpoint accuracy.
The weatherproof (IP67 sealed) unit also offers full camera integration (zoom, focus, aperture, ISO, and so on), in a relatively lightweight and small package, controlled by an easy-to-use interface. It can accommodate camera payloads of up to 4kg.
Its pan and tilt manual control speed is 0.05° to 180° per second on both axis, with zero latency, and the system offers 360º continuous rotation panning, plus -170º to +170º tilt movement.
Using MRMC’s control software (MHC) via Ethernet, the Whisper Head lends itself to live broadcasts and events that require fast operation of camera positions. With a touchscreen device (Surface Pro, iPad, etc) or traditional joystick console, the user has ample options to control, set and save preset positions.
