Las Vegas (April 22-27, 2017) – Telemetrics, a leader in camera robotics and control systems, will introduce a new lower cost addition to its popular series of robotic servo-controlled pan/tilt camera support systems at the 2017 NAB Show (Exhibit Booth #C8319) in Las Vegas that brings new value and operational performance for robotically controlled cameras and automated production studios.
The new PT-HP-S5 Servo Pan/Tilt Head enables professionals working in sports, mid-size studios, houses of worship, government/educational installations, live events and reality TV production to lower operational costs while simultaneously improve 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 now part of Telemetrics’ 5th generation S5 camera control product portfolio. Compared to the existing PT-LP-S5, the PT-HP-S5 is targeted at smaller production studios with limited budgets but still needing unique POV shots to add value to their production. 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.
“The new PT-HP-S5 is designed for today’s cost-conscious production landscape, where lower prices and reliable operation are now the key buying decision criteria around the world,” said Anthony Cuomo, President of Telemetrics. “Our team has come up with a winning combination of speed, accuracy and smooth panning shots in a cost-effective package that will add value to any production studio or permanent venue installation.”
While compact in size and easy to install, the PT-HP-S5 utilizes high end servo motors that provide ultra-smooth motion even with fast acceleration and deceleration, and supports complex key-frame based programmed moves. In addition, the PT-HP-S5 supports a variety of camera lenses and a small teleprompter, and features the ability to launch an unlimited number of pre-sets. It also provides extremely quiet and fast operation (up to 100 degrees/second). When coupled with the Telemetrics RCCP-1 or RCCP-1A, a single remote operator can perform a full range of creative camera moves, including control over axis pan, tilt, zoom, focus, elevation and trolley functions.
Other important features include:
- • Automatic camera and lens detection
- • LED status indicators for power and health
- • Local buttons to drive any axis and set soft limits
- • Embedded red and green tally
- • Web application for simple control, configuration and health monitoring
- • Integrated camera control interface – no camera CCU required
- • Clean cable management
- • Controllable over Ethernet interface with support for third-party devices
