Camera Corps to showcase Q-Ball remote-control camera

Camera Corps will make the European debut of its Q-Ball, an ultra-compact, all-weather robotic head housed in a highly robust sphere machined from solid aluminum, during IBC2009.

The Q-Ball incorporates a dual-mode 16:9 HD/SD color camera, high-precision pan-and-tilt operation, 10:1 zoom optics and infrared night vision capabilities under full remote control. Pan and tilt can be operated at any speed from four seconds to 20 minutes per 360-degree rotation through an unlimited number of turns with precise joystick-controlled acceleration/deceleration.

Integral low-noise motors allow the camera to be repositioned smoothly during live shooting rather than merely between shots. Designed for fast exterior or interior rigging and derigging, the Q-Ball measures 4.52in in diameter and weighs 2.86lbs, including mounting shaft. It can be operated at any angle.

See Camera Corps at IBC2009 Stand 10.C49.
