MRMC Use Broadcast Robotic Products At London Studio

Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC) has announced that London Live, the first 24-hour entertainment channel devoted to London, will be using MRMC broadcast robotic products in their new London-based studio.
Working with Mark Roberts Motion Control and Nikon, London Live has helped develop a new state-of-the-art robotic system, featuring a nine axis robotic arm at the heart of the automated studio. Additionally, five robotic heads, from MRMC, carrying cameras and tele-prompters, will work together to provide a complete automated studio environment. The channel will be broadcasting live using Nikon D800 and D4 series cameras for a full-frame 35mm cinematic effect.
Steve Boland, Broadcast Business Development Manager at MRMC said: "This exciting new solution combines the stunning image quality that Nikon is famed for, with the precision that comes from MRMC robotics to offer a state of the art automated work flow for London Live.
"By working with the 24/7 TV channel we've been able to develop a cost-effective solution that allows broadcasters to operate in niche demographic markets, catering for regional broadcast requirements."
Bryn Balcombe, Technology Director, London Live says: "Building a television channel from scratch has given us an exciting opportunity to source the most innovative new technology and find less traditional and more cost-effective ways of doing things.
"Mark Roberts Motion Control's broadcast robotics solution will be perfect for our new London-based studio, allowing us to provide fast-paced, 24 hour broadcasting without compromising the image quality for our viewers."
London Live launches on 31st March 2014. More details about the innovative technology will be available following the launch of the channel.
