Shotoku extends life of aging remote camera systems

At IBC2008 (Stand 11.G30), Shotoku Broadcast Systems is launching a modular solution that extends the life of aging remote camera systems using a cost-effective phased approach. The Phoenix system allows users to migrate legacy remote-controlled camera systems to current, state-of-the-art technology in stages.

Phoenix allows existing robotics users to choose their own upgrade pace by replacing obsolete control system hardware and software with newer technology while leaving the core electromechanical subsystems untouched. Customers have the option to replace only the control system or to replace the control system and electronic controllers associated with each pan-and-tilt head.

Both TR-8S and TR-8T Shotoku control systems will operate in a Phoenix environment, where they can be configured to use an IP architecture to control the new Shotoku TG-18 and TG-27 pan-and-tilt heads (also shown at IBC2008) as well as legacy heads. The legacy equipment is controlled with Shotoku’s CMC-400 control unit, which interfaces directly with legacy heads, lens modules and height drives.

Shotoku also offers refurbishment and ongoing support for Radamec heads within a Phoenix system.
