Demonstrations will be held in Stagebox Booth # SL11813. In addition, an enhanced version of Shotoku’s popular TR-T touch control system and the SPI-Touch unique positional calibration method for Virtual Studios will be highlighted at the show. Gemini Pan Bar Control System (PBCS) Meets Stagebox! Shotoku’s revolutionary Gemini pan-bar controlled remote camera system will take a giant leap forward at NAB when it is demonstrated with Stagebox. Gemini offers easy, uncompromised operation for live events and other difficult-to-reach places where cameras are needed, but operators cannot go. When paired with Stagebox, the combined system allows remote control of multiple cameras over standard communication networks at live productions, such as sports events, resulting in tremendous flexibility and significant cost-savings. Stagebox uses open standards to allow high definition multi-camera productions to link their equipment and move content in real time. The small but powerful Stagebox unit transforms all the audio, video, timing and remote control signals to and from a camera into packet-based IP networks to streamline field production logistics and workflows. Production teams can use low cost switches instead of traditional high-end SDI routers, and full camera operation, including robotics control data, can be achieved through a single Cat6 connection. Shotoku’s Gemini system, a perfect fit for this technology, provides remote camera operation, while maintaining the unique precision control and natural feel of a standard manual pan & tilt head. TR-T Touch Control System An enhanced version of Shotoku’s successful TR-T touch control system will be at NAB. TR-T meets the demands of larger, complex facility-wide installations as well as smaller systems. The flexible TR-T system enables any control system in any location to easily and rapidly re-configure control of cameras and studios in other physical locations. Automated functions allow precise control over shot recall, with minimal intervention, enabling an operator to truly multi-task, without losing any on-air flexibility. SPI-Touch SPI-Touch offers a totally new way of positional calibration for Virtual Studios. Simply designate two different points through SPI-Touch’s viewfinder and press the button at each of the points. The camera position will be instantly calibrated. SPI-Touch eliminates the need to mark the studio floor and move the pedestal making calibration easy and fast.
