Robot Cameras To Get Mini Joystick

A Shepperton-based specialist business, Camera Corps, has chosen the 2010 NAB Show in Las Vegas for the worldwide launch of its new ultra-compact Mini Joystick Control.
Mini Joystick Control is compatible with all Camera Corps and Egripment pan and tilt heads, including the award-winning Camera Corps Q-Ball.
"Mini Joystick Control was developed for applications such as commentator-camera control or for outside-broadcast vehicles where desk space is often very restricted," commented Camera Corps' Managing Director Laurie Frost.
"It is extremely easy to use and ideal for fast-response on-air operation. The joystick and control buttons have the same tactile responsiveness as those on our full-size controller, including fully adjustable pan, tilt and zoom speeds and reverses.
"Zoom is controlled by rotary twist of the joystick. Up to five separate heads can be operated from a single panel. Reverse settings and control speeds for each of the five channels can be stored in non-volatile internal memory."
Technical Director Jim Daniels added: "The standard Camera Corps audio data communication system is employed to allow unlimited operating distances between Mini Joystick Control and the remote heads.
"Each of the five channels has its own red and green cue/tally light switch. Individual channels can be locked to prevent inadvertent alteration of presets. Focus can be remote-adjusted manually or switched between manual and automatic when used with cameras that support these features."
Mini Joystick Control operates from 9 to 18 V DC power adapter or battery. Total panel dimensions are 190 x 140 x 110 mm. Weight is 400 g.
Exhibiting in the Central Hall, Camera Corps will be represented at NAB Show 2010 by Laurie Frost, Jim Daniels and Director of Operations Matt Frost.
Camera Corps specialises in providing high-volume support services for reality television programmes as well as very large-scale sports events.
High-level cranes, HD and SD motorised tracking cameras, underwater cameras, bullseye-mounted archery target cameras and fire-proofed high-temperature cameras are available and the Camera Corps team expands during large-scale events from 10 full-time staff based at Shepperton Studios to as many as 200 specialists.
