(Austin, Texas--August 8, 2013) At the Texas Association of Broadcasters (TAB) 60th Annual Convention and Trade Show, Camera Corps, a Vitec Group Company, and a leading innovator of specialty remote cameras, tracking systems and camera support systems, will demonstrate its Q-Ball robotic camera systems (Booth 16) for attendees. The Q-Ball has helped capture the unique imagery of some of the biggest events televised across the globe, including coverage of the recent birth of Prince George of Cambridge in the UK.
The Q-Ball is a robust, high-level mini-cam system offering broadcasters creative advantages for OB, sporting and special events and studio newsroom production. Offering excellent performance in the most demanding remote camera applications, it is an ultra-compact, weather-resistant HD/SD remotely controlled camera. It features an integral 10-times-zoom optical lens and smooth-accelerating pan/tilt motors. Housed in a robust 115-mm diameter aluminium sphere, the Q-Ball camera has a two-megapixel CMOS sensor and is capable of operating in daylight or with infrared illumination. It delivers 1080i/720p high definition or 625/525 standard definition imagery at 50- or 59.94-Hz refresh rates. In addition, its ease of use makes for prompt on-location installation.
Also on-site at TAB will be the company’s Mini Joystick Control, which is compatible with Camera Corps’ Q-Ball. Developed for applications such as commentator-camera control and outside broadcast vehicles, the Mini Joystick Control has the same tactile responsiveness, in terms of adjustable pan, tilt and zoom speeds and reverses, as the company’s full-size controller. It employs the company’s standard audio data communication system to allow unlimited operating distances between the controller and remote heads.
