Shotoku Broadcast Systems will showcase its high-capacity control panels at NAB 2010 with a series of new features including SD/HD support, wide screen layout, and customisable display options. The manufacturer will also target single-operator productions with a small but high-precision unit. The panels will be shown alongside the company’s Orchestra Camera Management System, now available with an integrated live-video touch screen option, its flagship TRP-100 fully robotic studio pedestal and its full range of robotic and VR sensor pan/tilt heads.
Shotoku’s TR-T system is now available in 16:9 widescreen configuration making it ideal for use in HD studio environments as it integrates with most HD/SDI routers. The high res widescreen VGA touch screen uses the latest seamless glass Acoustic Pulse technology to provide exceptional accuracy and durability over many years of intensive use without ever needing recalibrating. Other enhancements include a configurable screen layout supporting 16 cameras, the ability to be controlled from a single operator position, and a display in any configuration to suit the programme requirements.
