NHK integrates Shotoku camera robotics

NHK has purchased the Shotoku robotic camera control system to integrate tightly with its legacy Radamec camera control equipment.

All pan/tilt heads and control panels in the Shotoku range are compatible with other manufacturers’ robotic counterparts. NHK’s Shotoku configuration will integrate two TG-19 VR pan/tilt heads and TR-8T control units into its existing Radamec system. The Shotoku panels will control both Radamec and Shotoku heads. The existing Radamec system will be capable of controlling both sets of heads also.

The new system will be used in a virtual studio environment. The TG-19 VR head for robotic and VR applications, can bear a 154lb payload and features manual operations with adjustable fluid damping.

The TR-8T control system gives control of multiple cameras with an unlimited shot capacity per camera. Video is captured and stored on the touchscreen allowing operators to build a storyboard and easily recall shots with a touch to the monitor. All camera movements are accessed on the touchscreen as well. Both units feature multiple display modes, single camera mode with live video, additional positional control for precise shots via operator selection, and an interface to external devices.

The FAA’s current rules and proposed ban on flight over people, requirement of visual line of sight and restriction on nighttime flying, effectively prohibit broadcasters from using UAS for newsgathering. ~ WMUR-TV General Manager Jeff Bartlett
