Q-Ball Captures Vettel Win

News Image
Camera Corps' Q-Ball remotely controlled pan/tilt/zoom equipment recently captured the moment on the winner's podium when Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel's celebrated victory at the Indian Grand Prix motor race on October 27.
"Success breeds success," comments Shaun Glanville, Business Development Director of Camera Corps.
"Our aim is to design and build remotely controlled camera systems offering the high-precision control that a driver would demand from a racing car. The images obtained from Q-Ball cameras by many of the world's leading broadcast producers in sport, documentaries, music productions and reality television shows, prove that we have accomplished this ambitious goal and continue to do so."
Q-Ball cameras are used by broadcasters worldwide, including the Red Bull production team.
Other recent applications include capturing the victory celebrations at a major UK motor race this summer followed by World Series Diving in August from Boston Harbor, Massachusetts.
Each Q-Ball incorporates a 10:1 zoom lens which enables the remote operator to produce wide angle and close-up shots while retaining full live-action control of pan and tilt.
The Q-Ball head is a robust and weatherproof cast-aluminum sphere of similar diameter to a standard Compact Disc or DVD.
Inside is a 1080i camera with 10:1 zoom optics plus a fully rotatable pan and tilt head. Motors enable the operator to adjust the camera angle from practically any location and enable smooth adjustment of vertical and lateral tracking speeds.
