Shotoku Broadcast Systems will introduce lightweight and robust pan and tilt heads to accommodate a wide range of applications. Shotoku also will debut a multicamera, cue computer control system for robotic configurations.
The small TG-27 pan and tilt head can handle payload up to 7 kilograms (37.5 pounds), whether mounted upright or inverted. The pan and tilt head is VR capable and compatible with all Shotoku control systems, including the new Orchestra Camera Management Systems.
