Shotoku showing its further enhanced TR-XT robotics system at NAB 2024

With the latest version of its TR-XT control system, Shotoku says it is offering attendees at this year’s show a glimpse into the future of studio robotics control.

Matt Servis, Robotic Support Specialist for Shotoku USA, explained, “After the incredible reception our upgraded TR-XT received last year, we are excited to bring it back to NAB with even more improvements and a significantly enhanced feature set.

“This is a visual business, and these extraordinarily appealing enhancements will provide operators with more options and the ability to perform more efficiently. 

“You’ll be right to think none of this is particularly life-changing, but for someone under the pressure of live production, these enhancements can be the difference between a stunningly successful broadcast and one hindered by unnecessary obstacles.” 

The new version of the TR-XT control system is built around the core of its widely deployed predecessor but offers much newer functionality than just an update. All the resiliency and reliability of previous systems have been retained, eliminating single failure points and preserving all its unique redundancy. 

The new version, however, has moved to a Windows 11 operating system and implements even more of the distributed front-end/back-end architecture and fully supported virtualised remote database support. It sports a fresh easier-on-the-eye style of command buttons and colour scheme that makes navigating the system easier than ever. 

The StudioView shot-planning capability now has more powerful multi-camera tools so camera positions are easily understood within a scaled real-studio layout image, and the fully-updated AutoFrame face tracking technology has been implemented. 

At booth C3816, visitors can also check out the latest developments in AutoFrame, Shotoku’s technology that allows for real-time face tracking and shot recall. Responding to customer requests, Shotoku has also expanded the capacity for multiple channels simultaneously tracked (now 10 and counting) as well as intelligently defining and maintaining the desired framing, including live zoom adjustments.

To find out more, visit the Shotoku booth at NAB 2024, which is taking place at the Las Vegas Convention Centre from April 13-17.
