Shotoku Broadcast Systems to Showcase TP-200VR/300VR System at IBC 2016

Shotoku Broadcast Systems, the maker of robotic camera support and virtual reality tracking, is showcasing its VR system technology at IBC.

Shotoku said its combined TP-200VR pedestal and SX-300 VR head produce a VR tracking system without compromise in accuracy or ease of operation. The pedestal/head combo offers light-touch control and robust stability to match even the most demanding applications.

Accurate pan, tilt, zoom, focus, X, Y and height data output keeps the VR graphics system precisely synchronized to the camera’s floor position, orientation and height.

Features of the system include the lightweight, two-stage pneumatic TP-200 VR pedestal, the high-resolution and robust EFP SX-300VR head, fast and simple referencing using origin sheet on studio floor, unlimited X-Y tracking area, RS422 serial data output and industry-standard data protocols.

“Tracking systems must be precise, but also highly reliable, simple to use and with full broadcast-quality operation at all times,” said James Eddershaw, Shotoku’s sales director. “The TP-200/300VR system meets all these challenging demands in a lightweight, cost-effective package requiring no complex set-up or specialist operations.”

Shotoku will also be highlighting its TP500 compact and lightweight pneumatic pedestal capable of supporting camera payloads of up to 121 pounds and ranges from 26.2 to 58.5-inches in height. It is suitable for multi-location use such as OB, studio or event production.
