BBC World Service has deployed Fusion robotic heads and control systems from Vinten Radamec for the broadcast production of its free-to-air BBC Persian and BBC Arabic language channels. 

BBC Arabic TV is beamed to cable and satellite viewers in 22 countries across North Africa and the Middle East via the Arabsat, Eutelsat and Nilesat satellites.

Twelve Vinten Radamec Fusion FH100 heads – seven at BBC Arabic TV and five at BBC Persian TV – have been deployed in total, each mounted on a Vinten Osprey Elite pedestal and integrated with the Vinten Radamec Control System (VRC).

Vinten claims the Fusion FH100 is the only on-shot robotic and manual pan & tilt head designed for use both as a standalone device and for seamless integration with robotic pedestals and height drives.

Delivering multi-user, multi-facility control of up to 32 devices from any number of locations, the VRC’s shot storage facility allows picture based running orders to be created with a one-touch operation, along with programmable fade times.

Both installations were managed by Vinten Radamec’s systems integrator Dega Broadcast Systems, working closely with engineering teams from Vinten Radamec and the BBC.
