The camera robotic system is integrated with USC Annenberg’s Ross OverDrive production control to create an automated news broadcasting center. The system also gives the school the ability to manually control remote pan/tilt camera heads, though since the installation the school says that it often uses the systems full automation over manual controls.

Advanced Broadcast Solutions installed the three Telemetrics PT-RM-1 pan/tilt heads, three RCCP-1 remote camera control panels and Telepod elevating tripod system.

According to Chuck Boyles, director of multimedia technologies at USC Annenberg, the goal of these systems is to provide students with training experiences that will ready them for the professional world.
