Telemetrics, the U.S-based developers of camera robotics and control systems, introduced the new PT-HP-S5 Pan/Tilt head at NAB 2017.

The new head, which won the Best of Show award, is slightly smaller than its previous edition, PT-LP-S5. It has a smaller load capacity of 40 pounds versus 90 pounds with same ultra-smooth on-air motion and advanced system interfaces.

Another product showcased by Telemetrics at the show was the RCCP-1A (Remote Camera Control Panel), with more features and production power to accommodate the highest end broadcast requirements.

An advanced auto-framing feature added to the RCCP-1A keeps on-screen talent framed without the manual need to trim the shot. The robotic camera re-frames the shot if the subject on camera is sitting off-frame or moving back and forth behind the anchor desk.

This feature of RCCP-1A is valuable when operators are overseeing multiple cameras. RCCP-1A is perfect to use with production automation systems; as even with no staff, the system can be set up to automatic correction.

Telemetrics also introduced its new RCCP-M (Modular) control panel. The RCCP-M is a new concept in robotics control, with a small footprint and easy to use touch-screen interface. The modular side-car panels can be attached to the RCCP-M on either the left or the right side, and multiple side-cars can be added in any order.

David Workman, director of sales, Telemetrics, said: “Another successful NAB Show has ended and our continued message of efficiency and cost-reducing solutions clearly resonated with customers. According to the NAB, the show attendance was more than 103,000 and at times it seemed like a good percentage of them were in our booth.

“We’ve got a lot of happy broadcast station customers as well, like our friends at ABC, NBC and TV2 Norway, who all stopped by our booth to discuss new expansions of their existing systems. With Telemetrics, broadcasters are reducing on-air errors and producing more shows with the same staff. Robotics camera pedestals seamlessly operating on camera rail systems go a long way to help realise this goal. Again, it’s all about achieving highly professional yet cost-effective results.”

“With our upcoming move to larger facilities in Allendale, New Jersey and several new platforms that our engineering team is working hard to develop, the future looks bright—both for Telemetrics and our customers,” added Workman.
