How to unearth new potential using Camerobots

We preview another white paper form the NewBay Connect website, an online resource for professionals in the broadcast and media industries.

Featured below is an extract of a case study from the company, which supplied camera robot systems in the Tagesschau news studio. The white paper can be downloaded in full here.

When the Tagesschau news bulletin made its debut broadcast from the newly opened studio at NDR on Easter Saturday 2014, the occasion also constituted a baptism of fire for a host of hi-tech equipment. Ensuring optimum presentation were an 18-meter-wide media wall and, suspended from the ceiling, three steerable camera robots supplied by Camerobot Systems.

As many as 20 editions of Tagesschau are transmitted from the studio every day, in addition to the bulletins from the digital news channel tagesschau24 and various programs in a magazine format – Tagesthemen, Nachtmagazin and Wochenspiegel. The new studio has made the static style of presentation a thing of the past. Two large desks and ample freedom of movement in front of the giant media wall allow for a much more graphic presentation of the news than ever before.
