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
