Q-Ball robotic camera delivers remote coverage in Costa Rican jungle

The recently introduced Camera Corps Q-Ball HD/SD robotic camera made its broadcast debut in the latest season of “I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here,” set in the Costa Rican jungle.

Introduced at the 2009 NAB Show, the Q-Ball consists of a full dual-mode color camera, high-precision pan-and-tilt system, 10:1 zoom optics and infrared night-vision capability 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 no visible stepping.

Designed for fast exterior or interior rigging and derigging, the Q-Ball measures just 4.5in in diameter and weighs 2.86lbs including mounting shaft. It can be operated at any angle. The camera incorporates a 1/3in 2-megapixel 16:9 CMOS sensor delivering 1080i/720p HD or 625/525 SD, both at 50Hz or 59.94Hz and in 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio.
