Telemetrics Princeton BC Center release
Case Studies/Whitepapers

Telemetrics Camera Control Systems Chosen to Automate Broadcast Center at Princeton.


Las Vegas, NV (April 20, 2009) – Telemetrics Inc., has announced that their camera control systems have been implemented at the new Broadcast Center at Princeton University. Telemetrics products can help clients meet their growing demand for A/V services by offering a more efficient and automated approach to studio productions.

Princeton.jpg“We opted to go with an automated camera control system because we have a limited amount of staff to handle studio and on-location productions,” said David Hopkins, director of the Broadcast Center. “The Telemetrics equipment enables one person to control two cameras at the same time from one location, and this capability has helped us in managing staffing issues and allowing us to do more.”

The Broadcast Center is a 1,600-square-foot facility located in the University's Lewis Library building. It includes a 625-square-foot video studio and a 30-square-foot audio recording booth, which may be used by members of the University community participating in radio and television interviews. The Center is staffed by a team of six professionals and provides video production services for campus events and manages lecture recordings, podcasts and rich media content.

The automated studio setup includes Panasonic AK-HC1500G cameras with Canon KH 19X6.7KTS Lenses and Telescript 15” Teleprompters. They are mounted on the Telemetrics PT-LP-S4 Pan/Tilt Head, with Telemetrics Televator® Elevating Pedestals. In this configuration, the Televators add pedestal height control to the Pan/Tilt Head. The Broadcast Center also deployed the Telemetrics CTS Floor Track System in their design. Custom-built to the Center’s specifications, the system is fully servo controlled with location feedback for preset positioning and motion control to the entire pedestal.

“Between the Televator-mounted cameras and the CTS Trolley cameras, we have complete flexibility in programming shot origin and destination points,” said Hopkins. “The movement is smooth from point to point.”

The Telemetrics Touchscreen Remote Control Panel (RCP) allows control room operators at the Broadcast Center to have control of the cameras, CCU controls and peripheral devices, all on a single panel.
