Polish TV Station Installs Telecast POV Modules
July 29, 2005
Telecast Fiber Systems provided its POV (point-of-view) fiber-optic video/data link in a camera shuttle system for TVN24, a TV newscast studio in Poland.
The POV transports video from the camera to the control room and also facilitates robotic control of the camera shuttle, which moves laterally and vertically.
"We chose Telecast's POV units because they transmit video from the camera to the control room via a long, single length of fiber without any loss of quality, while simultaneously providing the means to control the camera shuttle via the serial port," said Dave Rennie, director of marketing and sales for Trust Automation, the motion control and systems engineering company working on the project,
The POV system supports a Sony DXC-990P camera with a Canon lens and image stabilization, built onto a robotic shuffle that transverses a horseshoe-shaped track 131 feet long.
Trust Automation is nearing completion of manufacturing and integrating the custom-designed system at its California facilities.
