NEWS NAB Booth C9035 Schneider Optics Booth C11130 Bradley Engineering B ritish manufacturer Bradley Engineering will be showing a set of newly-developed camera heads and accessories for unobtrusive and remote controlled filming at NAB this year. This equipment is built for professional broadcasters and includes remote controlled camera heads with 30x zoom, cameras with 4 MegaPixel imaging, and connectivity products to operate cameras over IP networks. The highlights on show at NAB will be: Bradley’s enhanced Camball 3, a miniature rotating camera head which now offers 30x optical zoom; three miniature, high resolution camera heads with 4 MegaPixel imaging and improved low light performance, and the stylish ‘Eyeb’ remote mini camera. The ‘Eyeb’ camera is an all in one design, with streamlined styling, for commentary cameras, POVs, unobtrusive filming and multi-camera reality shows. It features a larger sensor chip, increased to 0.4” and 4 Megapixel camera with controllable movement in pan, tilt and zoom which combine to give crisp, clean, high resolution pictures. Also at NAB Bradley Engineering is introducing a new, precision controlled camera head for remote camera control, that is accurate enough for Virtual Reality filming where a presenter stands against a computer-generated set, or for conferencing applications in large venues. The new camera head, named “XM” or “Extended Motion”, is fully motion controllable, controlled not just by a joystick, but also by a computer, and by pre-programming. This gives it greater accuracy and tighter control of the movement, including control of acceleration and deceleration. There is also a feature to remember and repeat programmed moves. Unified Video Technologies U L eading lens and filter maker, Schneider Optics will make several product introductions in at NAB this year.
