Camera Corps Reports Highly Successful NAB 2011

Camera Corps, a leading provider of remote cameras and control systems for television sports, stage and studio applications, has reported a highly successful National Association of Broadcasters Convention.
Co-exhibiting with Bexel in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Centre, between April 11 - 14, Camera Corps demonstrated its new CC-3D Universal RCP and Multi Camera Keypad alongside the proven Q-Ball ultra-compact HD/SD camera head.
Scott Nardelli, Chief Business Development Officer of Camera Corp's US distributor, Bexel, said: "The Q-Ball ultra-compact HD/SD camera head attracted a very high level of enquiries during NAB. Broadcasters worldwide now recognise the huge production efficiencies made possible by robotic camera systems. The head's distinctive design is also becoming a familiar image on-screen. Ten Q-Ball heads were used to provide coverage of the Academy Awards Oscar presentations at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood in February. Using Q-Ball enables a single operator to control HD video feeds from a wide range of locations with full control or pan, tilt, tenfold optical zoom, focus and line-up."
Laurie Frost, Camera Corps Founder and Managing Director, added: "NAB 2011 was a very good show for us. It continues to attract predominantly US-based delegates but a good number of international visitors also came to the stand, including some of the biggest names in sports broadcasting. Interest in 3d continues to expand. The CC-3D Universal RCP which we launched at the show allows six cameras of various makes and models to be comprehensively remote-controlled from a single panel. Equally suitable for 3D and 2D productions, it enables two stereoscopic rigs to be controlled on a paired-camera basis to maintain predetermined adjustment offsets between left and right cameras, or as individual cameras if preferred. The CC-3D Universal RCP is intuitive to operate, allowing fast and easy operation during outside broadcasts as well as for live stage or studio events."
Also new to the US market, Camera Corps' Multi Camera Keypad increases from five to 96 the number of remote camera heads that can be operated via the company's Joystick Control, Mini Joystick Control or CCU Panel. Fully compatible with a very wide range of cameras, including the Camera Corps Q-Ball ultra-compact robotic pan/tilt/zoom camera, it allows large remote camera systems can be manipulated in a limited space such as a mobile production vehicle.
Additional to the Central Hall exhibit, Camera Corps Q-Ball robotic heads were demonstrated by Egripment, Telemetrics and ToolsOnAir as part of their respective NAB 2011 exhibits.
