Shotoku supports Colombia’s RCN-TV virtual studio

Shotoku Broadcast Systems, a supplier of manual and robotically controlled camera support products, has delivered several tripod and tripod/dolly systems to support RCN-TV’s new Vizrt virtual set solution. RCN-TV, one of Colombia’s two privately licensed television networks, went on-air with the equipment during the third quarter of 2008. The network reaches 97 percent of Colombian viewers across 132 stations.

Working with Closed Caption Latina, a local systems integrator and distributor in the Colombian market, Shotoku designed a camera support configuration that integrates seamlessly with the Vizrt Viz|Virtual Studio at RCN-TV to achieve optimum performance in a virtual environment.

Shotoku supplied a TK-59VR jib paired with a TU-03AVR pan/tilt head to enable wide camera coverage without the use of a dolly. The TU-03VR head sends exact camera position signals to the computer in real time via built-in high-precision encoders for fail-proof positioning.

RCN-TV also installed several of Shotoku’s single and double stage tripods, and studio dollys with SH-90 pan/tilt high performance heads. Designed for portable broadcast cameras, the heads provide the smooth, high-quality movement needed for calm, clear camera work.

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
