Vinten Radamec Unveils Virtual Reality for FHR-35
VALLEY COTTAGE, N.Y.: Vinten Radamec recently launched a virtual-reality
upgrade for its FHR-35 head.
The Fusion FHR-35 pan-and-tilt head debuted at IBC 2011, and
was the first Vinten Radamec product to incorporate the company’s Intelligent Control
Engineering. The FHR-35 uses Ethernet or serial output, direct from the head, to
transmit positional data to the VR render engine.
Designed for payloads up to 35.27 lbs (16kg), the Fusion FHR-35
head was created around Vinten Radamec’s ICE technology. The platform provides a
motion control system and drive train to deliver broadcast quality movement, as
well as the widest pan-and-tilt range, with accuracy better than 0.02 degrees.
High-resolution absolute encoders deliver accurate camera positional
data suitable for the most demanding VR applications. The ICE motion control system
is also able to drive a wide range of full-servo broadcast lenses using analog,
digital or hybrid control modes.
