Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) is adding to its robotic movement solutions for PTZ cameras with the acquisition of Poland-headquartered company, Slidekamera.
Central to its PTZ strategy is the importance of expanding the product range while providing wide market access, particularly through its established reseller channels, said MRMC, with the acquisition delivering on both counts.
Paddy Taylor, head of broadcast, MRMC, said, “Slidekamera has been providing various products and components to MRMC for some time. We have formed an excellent long-term working relationship, and it has become evident that they are a great fit to add additional value to MRMC’s offering.
“Slidekamera has a number of solutions that complement the broadcast market, from PTZ motion control enablement to a range of film and commercial products and accessories. Therefore, we felt that in a number of areas, rather than developing our own in-house solutions, it made sense to formalise our partnership so that we can take our joint products to a wider market.”
MRMC has already integrated its AI system Polymotion Chat with Slidekamera’s robotic pan/tilt heads.
“We also see excellent potential for products like our Automated Jib Solution (AJS-1) which could be paired with the X-Head from Slidekamera giving us options for manual control as well as the automated solution it currently provides,” continued Taylor.
