Shotoku announces Phoenix staged upgrades for aging remote cameras systems
Shotoku Broadcast Systems is launching Phoenix, a modular solution that extends the life of aging remote camera systems, at IBC2008, Sept. 12-16, in Amsterdam.
Well-suited for news, sports and current affairs studios as well as legislative systems, the Phoenix migrates legacy remote controlled camera systems to state-of-the-art technology and networks in stages.
Phoenix allows existing robotics users to choose their own upgrade pace by replacing obsolete control system hardware and software with new technology while leaving the core electromechanical subsystems untouched.
The Shotoku TR-8S and TR-8T control systems will operate in a Phoenix environment where they use IP network architecture to control new Shotoku TG-18 and TG-27 pan-and-tilt heads as well as legacy heads.
