Egripment Support Systems will present its new 205/D Digital Remote Head (pictured) for modern, smaller cine and ENG cameras for the first time at NAB 2015.
The more compact 205/D offers the same exacting precision and smoothness in a smaller and lighter design, providing users with an affordable solution for virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR) production.
“With the reduction in camera sizes, it is not always necessary or desirable to use our larger digital or encoded heads,” said Richard Villhaber, vice president and sales director for Egripment. “So, we now offer the 205/D in our line up to fill this growing need. Thanks to the smaller size and lighter weight of the 205, live operation, studio automation and virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR), has never been this economical and easy to achieve.”
A replacement to the company’s Minishot Digital and Super Shot Heads, the 205/D is fully compatible with all Egripment Digital Remote and VR/AR Systems. Like all Egripment remote broadcast products, the 205/D integrates with the company’s TDT Encoded Camera Crane and Dolly, the 225 G-Track Generic Track System and the Encoded StarCam Studio System, for a very sophisticated multi-axis studio system suitable for the highest quality of VR/AR and Studio Automation. In addition to traditional mounting on tripods lightning spigots and tripods, it can be inverted and/or externally-mounted, offering users the option of a variety of unique and creative angles for current and future applications.
The company will also be showcasing its 306/D Digital and Encoded Remote Head, suitable for use with larger ENG and cine cameras for studio and VR/AR sets.
Available as a standalone system or as part of a larger studio automation set up, the 306/D comes ready to use for a variety of VR/AR sets. It comes standard with 360-degree freedom; an ultra-high resolution encoder; limit switches; an adjustable camera platform; and zoom and focus speed, electronic damping and Ethernet data controls. A variety of Teleprompter brackets are also available and easy to install.
The 306/D is prepared for current and future applications, such as VR/AR and studio automation. It also integrates with the company’s TDT Encoded Camera Crane and Dolly as well as the 225 G-Track Generic Track and Encoded StarCam Studio Systems.
