Camera Corps to introduce self-illuminating option for Q-Ball camera
Camera Corps will launch a self-illuminating version of its Q-Ball all-weather robotic camera head at IBC2009.
Designed primarily for commentator-camera applications, the new Q-Lite option is a multielement LED ring light that generates a powerful, non-glare soft light to illuminate a presenter.
Camera Corps' Q-Ball is a full dual-mode robotic color camera with high-precision pan and tilt, 10:1 zoom optics and infrared night-vision capability housed in a 4.52in diameter sphere machined from solid aluminium.
Pan and tilt can be operated at any speed from four seconds to 20 minutes per revolution through an unlimited number of turns. Integral high-precision, low-noise motors allow the camera to be repositioned smoothly during live shooting rather than just between shots.
