Robokam robotic camera system turns heads at IBC2006

A new robotic camera system with a wide range of broadcast applications debuted at IBC2006. Developed by Robotics Technology Leaders GmbH, for German broadcaster RTL, RoboKam incorporates face tracking and object-tracking. The tracking system employs two cameras (vertical and lateral) and does not require a performer to wear a tracking sensor. Three RoboKam systems have been sold for use at RTL’s n-tv news TV center in Cologne, Germany.

RoboKam is designed for live or automated control of film and HD or SD TV cameras. It can readily be combined with a pan/tilt unit for fixed or mobile operation modes, including virtual studio applications. RoboKam includes a full motion-control package for 6-D camera movement, and allows recording images to be viewed in real time. A limitless number of camera positions can be stored and combined to create motion along multiple trajectories. Real-time live control can be achieved using joystick-like input devices such as 3Dconnexion's SpaceBall.
