BST Services, a Swedish company specialising in advanced camera robotics, is making its IBC debut with the camACE pan-and-tilt head.
The camACE can achieve resolution and repeatability of 0.8 arc-seconds with zero backlash, making for precise on-air moves. To support critical operations like news studios, the camACE is designed with direct drive servos that include only one moving part per axis and high damping makes to provide high reliability and support virtually silent operation.
The camACE remote head can be paired with the Altitude lifting column and the silentTrack floor or ceiling rail system, enabling designers to utilise robotic cameras with complete freedom of movement for very quick and precise positioning.
The system also supports payloads of up to 45kg, allowing for full studio cameras (complete with prompters) to be used.
Camera movement is controlled from modular panels which provide intuitive access for programming and live operation. Safety is inherent in the control system, ensuring the protection of equipment, operators and the surrounding environment, with the camACE meeting all widely recognised safety standards for studio robotics.
Peter Elmqvist, CEO at BST Devices, said, “Our goal is to continue to push the boundaries of camera robotics.
“IBC is a great opportunity to show our platform in action, delivering silent, fast, accurate and repeatable movements, ultimately empowering operators to capture stunning visuals and enhance storytelling.”
BTS Devices will be exhibiting at booth 7.A02 alongside sister company nxtedition at IBC 2023, which is taking place from 15 to 18 September at the RAI Amsterdam Convention Centre.
