Shotoku CMC-400 extends life of legacy robotic pan and tilt heads
Shotoku Broadcast Systems is offering managers a way to extend the life of their aging robotic pan and tilt heads with the new CMC-400 control system.
The camera motion control series replaces old electronics with a new design. It also allows the heads to be integrated with the most current Shotoku systems.
Direct connection to other manufacturers’ robotic pan-and-tilt heads is achieved via Ethernet or RS-422 connections. Outputs for Shotoku Lens Drives, direct lens servo control and Shotoku height drives, are included as standard.
Depending on the type of the head used, the series can either be mounted directly to the side of the head using the same mountings as the existing head control unit, or it can be wall-mounted using supplied brackets.
