Q-Ball is a robust, remotely-controlled camera with an internal 10x zoom optical lens. Housed in a fully-weatherproof 115 mm diameter aluminium sphere, it has smooth-accelerating pan/tilt motors which can be operated during live shots to track slow or fast-moving action.

Recent applications have included providing broadcast coverage of the Danish parliamentary election in Denmark where Q-Ball televised the arrival of the country’s new prime minister, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, as she arrived to address a meeting of supporters. The Q-Ball systems were provided by Copenhagen-based equipment rental company Best Broadcast.

The specialist cameras are also proving popular for various versions of Big Brother. A total of 38 Q-Ball and MiniZoom cameras were purchased by Staines-based Roll to Record for use on the latest UK series, while ten Q-Ball units were deployed for the sixth season of Big Brother Africa.

“Broadcasters worldwide are choosing our remotely controlled camera systems for studio and outdoor productions,” comments Camera Corps Sales & Project Coordinator Tim Reynolds. “Seventy-five remote systems have been shipped to Australia for the latest ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’. The increasing demand from rental companies is particularly healthy as it gives first-time users the opportunity to discover the huge advantages in production flexibility and efficiency which these systems offer.”

The latest addition to the family is the Q-Ball Pre-Set (pictured here with Q-Ball), which can store up to 18 preset pan, tilt, zoom and focus positions when used with the Camera Corps PTZF switcher and joystick control unit.
