“At this year’s NAB we have two clear messages for attendees,” says Rush Beesley, RUSHWORKS president. “One is that RUSHWORKS is the very definition of different, with unique technology that empowers a single operator to create sophisticated multi-camera video productions with no compromise in technical or production value. Second, we ‘Keep It Super Simple’, meaning it’s all so user-friendly that even non-techies can operate it. Our gear can literally go from broadcast to boardroom, classroom to congregation and always deliver quality beyond expectations with minimal operator involvement.”
RUSHWORKS NAB HIGHLIGHTS:
Recognizing the dramatic increase in demand for OTT content management and distribution, RUSHWORKS has created an “IP only” configuration of its industry-leading A-LIST Broadcast Automation System. The tiny form factor supports URL and NDI input and output, making this scheduling and playback engine the technology of choice for Internet TV stations.
3n1 Multi-Function Video Camera
Building on 18 years’ experience controlling PTZ cameras, RUSHWORKS now offers a camera with THREE functions in ONE form factor: an HD-SDI PTZ with 20x or 30x lens, a wide angle HD-SDI camera, and the ability to auto-track single targets. With exceptional low-light capability, it’s ideal for houses of worship, presenters, teachers, performances, and similar venues.
PTX Universal PanTilt Heads
These unique pan and tilt heads, available in two sizes, provide a new dimension of production functionality and versatility. Using VISCA and DMX controllers with your favorite camera or camcorder, remotely control most camera operations with cameras from AJA, ARRI, Blackmagic, Canon, Datavideo, JVC, Marshall, Panasonic, RED, Sony and others.
RUSHDOLLY for PTZ & PTX Production
RUSHDOLLY is a tiny but versatile track dolly designed to interface with PTZ and PTX cameras for creating scripted, multi-dimensional moves that integrate all motion axes into shots. RUSHDOLLY, equally at home on the floor or suspended, can creep or maintain a walking pace in the studio or on location, with super simple software for preset creation and speed-defined transitions.
VDEPO Video Deposition Recording System
VDEPO meets the needs of those specializing in the production of on-location video depositions. Lightweight and small, it’s optimized for quick setup and noiseless touch-screen operation. It has four inputs, supports Picture-in-Picture (PiP), a graphic and video File Browser with search and playback, and ISO recording of all inputs as well as the switched program.
VDESK Radio/TV Production System
Radio/TV integrates RUSHWORKS’ 3n1
multi-function PTZ camera with its TALK-TAKE automated video switching based on voice activation. The combination provides excellent coverage for the host and the guests with totally “hands off” switching. This means no additional workload on the producer, and low cost to provide good return on investment.
