Telemetrics Shows New Generation LP Servo Pan/Tilt Head at 2016 NAB

At 2016 NAB, Telemetrics previewed its next generation PT-LP- S5 Pan Tilt Head — a fifth generation product that is said to set new benchmarks in detail, quality and performance.

Ideally suited for studio applications, Telemetrics said the new S5 line includes advanced servo technology to accommodate higher payloads and smoother, quieter on-air operation. The camera balancing design enables fast, easy and accurate setup and commissioning.

A quick button access enables pan, tilt and pedestal limits to be set directly on the PTZ head, without the need for a control panel. LED indicators provide monitoring capability for Ethernet connectivity, power and load out of balance status.

Along with direct Ethernet and Wi-Fi support with pass-thru, the PT-LP-S5 is virtual set ready.

“Broadcast and production customers need robust and intelligent robotic systems that perform flawlessly in day-to-day operations,” said Anthony Cuomo, president of Telemetrics. “The next generation PT-LP-S5 Pan Tilt Head is a highly integrated camera robotics product that meets this demand with more performance and functionality than ever.”

The PT-LP-S5’s stable and reliable platform supports mounting prompters, preview monitors, camera, lens, tally and count down clocks, all powered by the unit’s integrated cable and power management feature. The system also supports both robotic and manual control overrides for added application versatility.
