Hybrid MC will use IBC 2007 to launch the compact robotic camera head, SILVER. The new entry to its robotic camera range is designed to offer a low-cost solution for broadcast quality output in a range of applications including reality television, sports, parliamentary and conference coverage.
The lightweight SILVER is suitable for video and film cameras not exceeding 12 kg (26 pounds) and is compatible with tripods, cranes or wall mounted equipment. Hybrid's COBALT camera controller and MERCURY software controller are fully compatible with the new software.
When used in a virtual studio application as part of a larger Hybrid MC system, the new head offers zero-latency performance with audio and video delay avoided.
"SILVER is the first in a line of new products that mark Hybrid MC's evolution from a virtual studio specialist into a company providing a range of graphics and production solutions," said Olivier Cohen, marketing and development manager for Hybrid MC. "This new robotic head delivers the precision and quality that make it suitable for the most sophisticated virtual studio broadcasts, but it is also compact and cost-effective for simple robotic camera applications in many other types of broadcasting."
