Telemetrics has launched two new robotic heads at IBC.

Its RoboEye 2 pan/tilt/zoom is a fully integrated HD camera and head. It can do video streaming and is AR/VR ready, with optical stabilisation.

Sergio Penetra, design engineer, Telemetrics, said: “It’s very flexible in the types of applications it can handle. It can do sports or legislative coverage, thanks to its wide dynamic range and robotic performance.”

This means it can move really slowly for tight shots in parliament, or fast enough to track a player across a football pitch.

It has a 1in sensor camera, with an 18x UHD zoom (24x HD) boasting high optical performance. It is also the first PTZ camera that can work with Telemetrics’ reFrame technology, which automatically pans and tilts to maintain a subject’s framing. It ships later this year.

Also new is the PT-CP-S5, a compact servo-mechanical pan/tilt head designed for smaller cameras weighing up to 6.8kg. The system’s robotics use particularly accurate servo-controlled motors to deliver very smooth on-air moves. It is AR/VR ready.

Telemetrics is also showing a fully weatherised robotic housing with air conditioning, to work in extreme heat. It can also cope with rain or dust and can be used with almost any broadcast camera and long lens.

Telemetrics is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 12.F34.
