Shotoku USA to Exhibit  Manual Camera Support Solutions at NAB 2020

Shotoku USA, Shotoku Broadcast Systems’ North American operation, will highlight a complement of manual support solutions at NAB 2020 in Booth C 9108 targeting a wide-range of applications. The international leader in the manufacture and marketing of camera support products will display a line-up that includes an addition to the recently launched SX200/260 ENG/EFP systems; the affordable, entry-level SD & SE tripod series, and the universally successful TP500/SX300 studio pedestal/head combination.

SX200 and SX260 ENG/EFP systems

Raising the bar on movement quality and shot framing control, the recently launched Shotoku SX200 and SX260 pan and tilt heads incorporate a brand-new design featuring Shotoku’s “Truebalance” for perfect counterbalance that is also easy to adjust throughout the range and has an intuitive display to indicate the current setting. The drag system uses Shotoku’s well known Viscam design but adds a new actuation system that combines the convenience and speed of selection of a stepped system, with the fine tuning and on-shot adjustment of a continuously variable design. The SX200 has a max payload of 44Lbs (20Kg) and the SX260 55Lbs (25Kg). The systems come standard with 2 stage ENG Carbon Fibre legs and is one of the lightest on the market at these payloads.

NEW for NAB 2020 - With these SX200/SX260 heads crossing over to the EFP application, the new TTH1002C 100mm carbon fibre EFP tripod has been added to provide an extremely rigid solution, useful when using longer lenses for sports and documentary production.

Shotoku to Launch Next Phase in Technical and Operational Developments for Robotic Camera Control at NAB 2020

Shotoku USA, Shotoku Broadcast Systems’ North American operation, will launch the next phase in technical and operational developments for robotic control systems at NAB 2020 in Booth C 9108. The international manufacturer of high-quality, easy-to-use, robust and reliable robotic and manual camera support systems will demonstrate advancements that incorporate an IP interface into its flagship SmartPed robotic pedestal; a self-contained and easy to connect pan/tilt head; numerous enhancements incorporated into the Company’s TR-XT control system and will also highlight its height drive and pan/tilt head ideal for legislative applications.

SmartPed Fully Robotic Pedestal – Absolutely Brilliant Navigation

SmartPed with Absolute Navigation is perfect for those applications where referencing the fully robotic pedestal is inconvenient or the design of the studio leaves no scope for a floor tile reference position. SmartPed now comes with two optional additions depending on the environment – AN-I is an IP interface within SmartPed enabling it to interface to existing external optical tracking systems such as Mosys StarTracker or Stype RedSpy using the absolute tracking information to reference and adjust the pedestals own internal navigation systems. AN-S provides a full integrated solution, including the optical tracking system for situations where customers do not already have installed optical tracking.
