S-Dash awarded STAR at IBC for pan and tilt head system

S-Dash, a swift and silent super-high-speed pan and tilt head system manufactured by Shotoku Broadcast Systems, is the recipient of the 2006 STAR (Superior Technology Award Recipient) Award given by the editorial staff of TV Technology Europe magazine at the 2006 IBC convention.
Designed to celebrate and showcase the preeminent technological innovations available to the broadcast industry, the STAR Award was presented to only 15 products at IBC 2006. TV Technology Europe's editor based his choices upon technical applications and the products’ overall contribution to the industry.
The unique S-DASH system mesmerized visitors and journalists alike as it soundlessly obeyed operator commands with precision delivered with lightening speed motion of up to 360 degrees/second.
Designed for shooting very high-speed movement such as sports and motor, air or horse races, the system is available with either a Pan-Bar or Joystick controller. The Pan-Bar controller features 'Ratio mode' which allows the operator to modify the head’s response speed to control inputs up to 2x producing 180 degrees of camera movement for 900 input.
The Joystick is a desk top unit for production, OB trucks, or other confined areas. RS422 interfaces make it possible to position the operator up to 150m from the camera providing improved operator safety and ease of installation.
Mark Hallinger, Editor of TV Technology Europe commented: “STAR awards are given to interesting new products that help a user save money or accomplish a task in an easier way. The products selected help advance the industry, some were chosen because of technical novelty or innovation, some because they filled an important gap in the production or transmission chain, and some because they were just cool products.”
Shotoku Broadcast Systems is an international leader in the manufacture and marketing of a full range of camera support products with emphasis on pedestals and pan/tilt heads for the television broadcast industry.
