Virtual reality, full camera studio automation and the ProTraveller crane for DSLR and HDV cameras are the main focus for Egripment at this year’s NAB. A fully Encoded Package for virtual studios or augmented reality is now available for several different Egripment cranes, including its TDT system and the 305/306 remote heads, as well as optional encoders for use on track dollies. The Encoding Package can be used with tested and certified rendering engines from Vizrt, Neuro TV, Orad, Brainstorm and Ventuz. Additional vendors can be implemented easily. For full camera studio automation, Egripment can deliver a full integrated system, which can be used in the automation environment of any studio. For a channel that broadcasts 24/7, reliability as well as highly redundant system architecture with a minimum of maintenance service is required. All of the systems can be controlled from a joystick control or a touchscreen system as well as through a complex automation system. All of the cameras deliver absolute tracking data for the virtual reality studio demands. Also on display will be the ProTraveller system, a jib/crane system for the prosumer type cameras (DSLR, HDV) with a maximum weight of 10 kg/22 lbs. It has a smooth, high quality crane movement with a highly technical remote head. The system can be mounted on any 100mm bowl type of connection. The ProTraveller can fit most applications, whether in the field, on track, in the studio, or clamped on a balcony. C8312
