Shotoku camera systems support multiple production requirements

At IBC 2022, Shotoku Broadcast Systems will be highlighting an expanded line of pan/tilt heads and enhanced control systems, as well as a range of semi and fully-autonomous systems.

The latter include the SmartPed robotic studio pedestal, which gives broadcasters the flexibility to position full camera payloads to any floor position in the studio. Supporting remote and local operation and with full VR/AR compatibility, SmartPed is designed for any live news/sports TV studio looking for exceptional on-air performance and increased production efficiency.

For studios where floor or ceiling rail cameras are required, Shotoku recommends the SmartRail System, which can be installed in almost any studio, even those without traditionally high studio ceilings.  Being rail mounted enables the camera to move in “perfect smoothness” regardless of the floor condition or studio environment.  

Ceiling mounted rail systems enable the studio floor to be completely clear of cameras and cables providing a clean visual appearance and freedom of movement for presenters and guests alike.

Ready to welcoming visitors to booth 10.F38, James Eddershaw, Managing Director of Shotoku, says, “As usual we’ll be showing a range of products reflecting the varied applications and market segments that we’ve always addressed, whether it’s a large, multi-camera broadcasting facility or a major national parliament; we’ve also expanded our platform to better accommodate small regional interview studios with the new TG-47, our latest pan/tilt head.”

The latest addition to the Shotoku range of pan and tilt heads, the TG-47 sits between the well-established TG-27 and TG-18i heads in terms of payload.  With a payload of 22kg, it can support a wide range of cameras and accessories, including typical 17-19” teleprompters.  Being compact and lightweight, it can also be used in smaller studios and on SmartRail ceiling systems.
