Camera Corps, aVitec Group Company, and a leading innovator of specialty remote cameras, tracking systems and camera support systems, showcases its Q-Ball robotic camera system at Content & Communications World (CCW) 2013 this week — Vitec Videocom Booth 1013. Q-Ball offers a robust, high-level mini-cam system with excellent performance in the most demanding remote-camera applications.
“Camera Corps is excited to highlight Q-Ball’s extensive feature set at CCW 2013,” says Shaun Glanville, Camera Corps. “We look forward to demonstrating how the Q-Ball enhances productions.”
Camera Corps’ Q-Ball offers a robust, exceptionally high-level mini-cam system with excellent performance in the most demanding remote-camera applications. An ultra-compact, weather-resistant HD/SD remotely controlled camera, it features an integral 10-times-zoom optical lens and smooth-accelerating pan/tilt motors. Housed in a robust 115-mm diameter aluminium sphere, the Q-Ball camera has a two-megapixel CMOS sensor and is capable of operating in daylight or with infrared illumination. It delivers 1080i/720p high definition or 625/525 standard definition imagery at 50- or 59.94-Hz refresh rates. In addition, its ease of use makes for prompt on-location installation.
Q-Ball is designed to go places where camera operators typically cannot, enabling them to capture B-roll beauty shots with ease. Beyond the standard camera shots, it can provide much needed close-ups for out-of-the-box, unique broadcast shots, making viewers feel like they are a part of the action. As the camera blends into the background, it does not impact on-camera behavior, giving broadcasters the added ability to capture more realistic interviews/reactions from those that tend to be camera shy on-air. Users can mount the camera upright or in an inverted position from a ceiling, post, scaffold rig, wall, cabinet, floor, backboard, tree or virtually anywhere, allowing the system to discreetly capture new angles.
The Q-Ball system is available globally for both sale and rental. For more information regarding rentals in the Americas, please contact sister Vitec company Bexel at 1 (800) 225-6185 / www.bexel.comor Camera Corps direct at www.cameracorps.co.uk.
