TR-XT Control System
The TR-XT is an extremely powerful, fully-featured remote camera control system. Despite its power and sophistication it is incredibly simple to operate – something vitally important in any broadcast or live-TV environment. A virtually unlimited number of shots may be stored for each camera since they are held on the hard drive of the T-Computer – the heart of the TR-XT camera control system. Shots are stored with a thumbnail image, captured (in SD/HD-SDI format) at the time of storing directly from the controlled camera, and may be displayed in small, medium or large format depending on the operator preference. Shots may be displayed in a random mode, where camera shots are stored in any grid position. Our unique single camera mode enables live video of the selected camera to be broadcast on the touch screen, along with all stored shots for the camera.
The TR-XT connects to all Shotoku robotic camera systems with a simple Ethernet network connection, and to compatible third party devices either by serial, or via our Digiport protocol convertors. The new touch screen uses a glass-front screen, rather than a traditional plastic overlay, improving the image quality, and the larger screen size maximizes the clarity and ease of use for the operator. The system comprises of the T-Panel (19”x3U), a high resolution VGA touch screen and the T-Computer processor unit (19”x2U).
As on all Shotoku control panels a precision three axis joystick enables smooth control of pan, tilt and zoom axis at all times. Pan and tilt response speeds are automatically compensated according to the zoom angle such that even on very narrow angle shots head movement is smooth and under close control.
Paired with our automation interface (software option) users can control our systems from an external third-party computer, managing everything from lights, cameras, graphics, and video renderings, easily
