Telemetrics offers new camera-elevating, wall-mount system
Telemetrics is making it easier for broadcast and production centers to accomplish the move to more automated systems with its elevating wall mount system. The BT-X3/Z3-VS is a remotely controlled camera-positioning system that offers both vertical and horizontal positioning for pan-and-tilt camera movement to help create a virtual studio environment.
The H-frame elevating, belt-driven track system can be controlled with various Telemetrics control panels and computer software offering position, preset and motion control capability. The X and Z tracks each measure up to 9.84ft and can bear a trolley load of 70lbs. They are specified with a minimum speed of 0.1ft/s and a maximum speed of 2.5ft/s.
The system comes with wall, ceiling and/or floor mounting brackets, floor leveling feet, cable track and pan/tilt mount, including the motor drive panels and motors, and can be custom designed to the customer’s specification.
