Vinten Radamec Shows Versatile And Flexible Automation At CABSAT 2011

Vinten Radamec is exhibiting at CABSAT 2011 to demonstrate the ease with which studios can migrate to camera robotics by adding automation to manual pedestals and heads.
The presentation will also feature compact automated camera systems for parliaments and other legislative buildings, now seen as critical to open democracy .
On display at CABSAT will be a standard Vinten Osprey Elite studio pedestal, fitted with a Vinten Radamec Fusion Bolt on Height Drive and Fusion FH-100 robotic and manual head. These can be fitted to any Vinten or Sachtler non-skirted manual pedestal in the field, giving precise control over pan, tilt and elevation when in automatic mode, with the capability of switching at the touch of a button to fully manual mode, giving the system the feel of a conventional Vinten pedestal.
It will be teamed with a Vinten Radamec HDVRC control system, widely recognised as the most powerful and flexible robotics controller. Complex moves as well as pre-set shots can be defined in advance then initiated directly from a touch-screen controller. On-shot trims can be made using a joystick, ensuring perfect framing even when the performers are out of place. The networked architecture of the HDVRC brings multiple benefits, including the ability to control cameras over multiple sites, allowing remote and local studios to be operated simultaneously from the same controller. As well as the broad range of Vinten Radamec robotics the system is capable of driving Autocam and Radamec products, as well as specialist units such as external weather cameras.
Vinten Radamec has experience in providing camera robotics and controllers for legislative chambers worldwide. Installations in Sweden, Poland and Alberta in Canada are among the most recent parliamentary systems.
The demonstration at CABSAT will feature an Autocam HS-102P robotic pan and tilt head, showing the capability of the Vinten Radamec solution to work with heads from a range of vendors as well as its own. It will be shown in conjunction with a Vinten Radamec Legislative Control System (LCS) which provides a simple single point of control for any legislative installation and can involved a very large number of robotic cameras.
The LCS can be linked into a voting or audio system that provides speaker information, from which its internal logic will choose the most appropriate camera to cover the speaker. Alternatively, it can be manually controlled using a touch screen to select and direct the cameras. In both cases, a joystick is provided to trim and tighten pre-set shots.
Karen Walker of Vinten Radamec said: "Automation - whether for a public building like a legislature or for a busy studio - is definitely no longer a complex, risky and expensive process. What we are showing at BVE this year is that it is simple to implement, secure in operation and delivers a real return on investment in a surprisingly short timescale."
The Vinten Radamec studio and legislative robotics solutions can be seen on Stand S3-B41 at CABSAT 2011, which is being held at the International Convention and Exhibition Centre in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, between February 8 - 10.
