Telemetrics Will Showcase Camera Control Options at IBC 2018

Featured products to include roving camera pedestal, and advanced camera control panels, plus a full line of pan/tilt heads and track systems.

At IBC 2018 Telemetrics will unveil for the first time in Europe the new OmniGlide Roving Platform (model RRP-1). The OmniGlide Roving Platform features an orbital drive system offering complete freedom of motion. This provides ultra-smooth direction changes and movement along curved paths. Dynamic movements won’t lose camera orientation when performing crabbing movements or spinning-on-a-dime.

With full robotic control, the OmniGlide roving pedestal utilizes advanced software and X/Y sensors, similar to those of the autonomous car industry, providing ultimate unmanned operation. 

Telemetrics OmniGlide (RRP-1) will be on stand for attendee demonstrations.

Also on show will be the new advanced control panel with reFrame technology as part of the enhancements to the RCCP-1A. It's designed for larger broadcast studios and legislative production centers. The RCCP-1A is now shipping with a fully comprehensive user interface and enhanced features including joystick configuration, smoother zoom functions and dwell loop capabilities.

When used with optional studio software (the RCCP-1A-STS) automatic shot correction technology, the system uses facial recognition to lock cameras onto the talent and automatically trim the shot.

The  RCCP-1A control panel now has eFrame technology as part of the enhancements for IBC 2018.

On stand will be the latest addition to the popular series of robotic servo-controlled pan/tilt camera support systems, the PT-H-S5 Servo Pan/Tilt Head, that brings new value and operational performance for robotically controlled cameras and automated production studios.

The PT-HP-S5 is now part of Telemetrics’ 5th generation S5 camera control product portfolio. The PT-HP-S5 is targeted at smaller production studios with limited budgets but still needing unique POV shots to add value to their production.

Telemetrics will also demonstrate its entry-level camera control unit, the RCCP-M. This camera control is designed for unmanned operation within houses of worship, boardrooms, concert halls and government chambers. The easy-to-use touch screen control includes a unique “Perspective” feature that allows novice users to take a picture of a desired camera angle with their cell phone, load it into the control panel and choose presets based on a real-time look from the perspective view of each camera. Working in this mode allows the operator to create a visual run sheet.

Attendees will get a hands-on look at the ever-popular Televator EP7 Series elevating pedestal that’s designed for greater stability. It’s available in three sizes (EP7-600, EP7-700 and EP7-1000) to accommodate virtually any camera and height position. The EP7 allows users to maximize available space in large and small studios, while facilitating more creative shots that enhances production value. 

Also on display will be the TG4 and TG4M of the TeleGlide family of  camera track systems, which can accommodate curve track requirements of television studios, conference rooms, sports and other locations.
