Shotoku USA Exhibits at NAB NY for the First Time

Shotoku Broadcast Systems demonstrated its dedication to the North American market by exhibiting at NAB NY 2017 for the first time, showcasing a range of popular robotic pan/tilt heads, height drives and control systems at the show.

The presence at the New York-based show follows the NAB 2017 launch of Shotoku USA, a subsidiary founded to support the organisation’s already significant and growing customer-base in North America. Shotoku USA support operations are headquartered in New York State with a satellite office located in Atlanta Georgia.

Matt Servis, robotics support specialist - North America, and Andy Parsons, US robotics specialist, will represent Shotoku USA at the show. The two will conduct product demos and talk to visitors about the Company’s on-going expansion in the American market.

Shotoku’s robotic pan/tilt head series will be represented by the TG-18 that combines high-accuracy, smooth movement, silent operation and high payload with a full manual override capability. The TG-18 will be joined by the small, light weight TG-27 head, ideal for parliaments, legislatures and small TV studios.

The Company will also show its height drive capabilities via the cost-effective Ti-11 fully integrated elevating column for robotic applications such as weather studios, news-desks and other open-area camera positions where manual operation is not a primary requirement.

Shotoku’s flagship TR-XT Touch Control System will be at show illustrating the Company’s ability to provide a robotic camera control system that incorporates unique features and flexibility including pre-set shot recall functionality.
