Telemetrics to Introduce Low Cost Robotic Pan/Tilt Camera Head at 2017 NAB Show

At the 2017 NAB Show, Telemetrics will introduce a lower cost addition to its series of robotic servo-controlled pan/tilt camera support systems.

Telemetrics said the new PT-HP-S5 Servo Pan/Tilt Head enables lower operational costs while improving production values and reduce technical errors. It can also be set up to automatically identify and warn operators when load balancing and power issues are detected.

The PT-HP-S5 is targeted at smaller production studios with limited budgets. It can accommodate any box-style camera and lens up to 40 pounds and is 4K-ready with embedded fiber connectivity as a standard feature.

It utilizes servo motors that provide smooth motion even with fast acceleration and deceleration and supports key-frame based programmed moves. It supports a variety of camera lenses and a small teleprompter, and features the ability to launch an unlimited number of pre-sets.

When coupled with the Telemetrics RCCP-1 or RCCP-1A, a single remote operator can perform a range of camera moves, including control over axis pan, tilt, zoom, focus, elevation and trolley functions.

It is controllable over an Ethernet interface with support for third-party devices.
