Telemetrics to Debut New Camera Robotics Gear at IBC 2017

Telemetrics will display its latest robotics products, including a remote control camera control and new service pan/tilt head, at IBC 2017.

Telemetrics said the new products include the Remote Camera Control Panel, the RCCP-1, the PT-HP-S5 Servo Pan/Tilt Head; a new entry-level camera control unit, the RCCP-M, a newly constructed Televator EP7 Series Elevating Pedestal and a new TeleGlide TG4 track system.

Following the success of its Remote Camera Control Panel, the RCCP-1, Telemetrics will show a new, more “advanced” control panel – the RCCP-1A. It's designed for larger broadcast studios and legislative production centers.

While the existing RCCP-1 control panel provides access to a variety of valuable menu controls of broadcast cameras – without the need for dedicated camera control units or external paint boxes – the new Telemetrics RCCP-1A takes this a step further by adding powerful, unified controls. It also includes auto-sensing technology that automatically keeps talent centered in the frame and intuitively follows their movement.

Telemetrics will introduce a new lower cost addition to its series of robotic servo-controlled pan/tilt camera support systems — the PT-HP-S5 Servo Pan/Tilt Head. It is targeted at smaller production studios with limited budgets that still need unique point of view shots to add value to their productions. It can accommodate any box-style camera and lens up to 40 pounds and is fully 4K-ready with embedded fiber connectivity as a standard feature.

For the first time in Europe, Telemetrics will unveil a new entry-level camera control unit, the RCCP-M. This product offers a highly intuitive and easy-to-use control interface with advanced auto-sensing technology. It features a full color 10.4 touch screen interface for instantly identifiable camera functions; pan, tilt and zoom speed control knobs and a large focus knob for highly precise camera control.

IBC Show attendees will see a newly constructed 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 enhance production values for any type of project.

Also on display will be the new TG4, which is the latest in the TeleGlide family of camera track systems to accommodate curve track requirements for television studio, conference room, sports and house of worship applications. The TG4 features a redesigned, streamlined trolley and track, which minimizes space requirements and also includes tracks that can be bent down to a sharp radius.
