(Valley Cottage, New York--February 17, 2011) Vinten Radamec®, a Vitec Group brand, will highlight the breadth of its capabilities at NAB2011 with the technology demonstration of its new Fusion FHR-35, a robotic pan and tilt head suitable for remote applications.
The forthcoming Fusion FHR-35 is a compact, lightweight robotic pan and tilt head designed to support broadcast camera and lens packages up to 35 lb (16 kg), in remote locations where the pan and tilt head needs to be as unobtrusive as possible, including parliaments, legislative buildings, live conferences and houses of worship.
The flexible and versatile head will incorporate Vinten Radamec’s ethernet-technology, which enables simple and straight forward set up in broadcasters’ existing structures. The new FHR-35 prototype will be beta-tested at NAB 2011 before its release later this year. The product will be shown with the Vinten Radamec Legislative Control System (LCS) to demonstrate a full system solution which gives broadcasters multi-user, multi-facility control of cameras, CCU controls and robotic devices, and rapid, accurate shot acquisition. Vinten Radamec has extensive experience in providing camera robotics and controllers for legislative chambers worldwide. Installations in Sweden and Alberta in Canada are among the most recent parliamentary systems.
Vinten Radamec will also be incorporating two dedicated virtual reality (VR) sets on the NAB2011 show floor, demonstrating how its products work live with software from leading graphics providers, Brainstorm and Orad. The control and location information from Vinten Radamec VR heads and pedestals is on an open interface and ready to work with any graphic solutions providers.
One of the VR systems will run with the Quattro SE, a lightweight and compact manually operated pedestal with built in encoders, which provide precise real time digital electronic positioning over the floor and in elevation. The second VR set will be a fully robotic system, using the Fusion FP-188VR pedestal, which has the ability to send precise positioning data from X, Y, Z, pan and tilt axis to give full freedom to move the camera within the virtual studio.
The new FHR-35, and the extensive range of Vinten Radamec studio and legislative robotics solutions, can be seen in booth C6425 in the Central Hall at NAB 2011. A range of Vinten Radamec’s Virtual Reality products will also be integrated with equipment on both the Brainstorm and QVL stands.
