Telemetrics Envisions Virtual Sets For Its RoboEye

Telemetrics is marketing an integrated PTZ camera, called RoboEye, that it says is ideally suited to virtual set applications and saves customers money because it does not require extra peripherals. The company is offering the RoboEye integrated with a virtual set package from Brainstorm Multimedia, but it can work with any virtual set.

The Telemetrics RoboEye features an integrated pan/tilt unit equipped with servo motors for maximum accuracy in positioning and velocity. Its The precise operational specifications—including a pan/tilt velocity of 0.01 – 90 degrees per second, a stop accuracy of 0.005 degrees and a feedback accuracy of 0.000375 degrees—make it ideal for use with virtual studio systems. Additionally, the integrated unit is designed for use in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Anthony Cuomo, President, Telemetrics, said that typical integrated PTZ cameras do not have the image quality or the accurate positioning needed for virtual applications, so in the past the only choice was to use higher end studio cameras. The RoboEye offers a professional HD camera robotics solution at a very economical price point.

“The typical integrated PTZ camera does not have the image quality or the accurate positioning needed for virtual applications, so in the past the only choice was to use higher end studio cameras,” he said.
