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.
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.
