Product Description

In addition to the standard Single Camera Mode, the latest TR-XT systems offer a revolutionary new option mode called LiveView.  LiveView takes the centre / drag operation of Single Camera Mode but enhances its usability through the use of a separate, dedicated wide-angle ‘spotter’ camera mounted on the main broadcast camera.

The view from this spotter camera provides constant, scene-wide image of the area in front of the robotic head, regardless of the zoom angle of the main broadcast camera.  Consequently, areas in the scene can be outside the field of view of the broadcast camera, yet still accessible to be touched and move the head to that point.  In this way, the broadcast camera can be moved smoothly to view perhaps a guest or other presenter, not in vison.

The LiveView camera is based on a miniature Video over IP camera providing full HD video delivered over the Shotoku control network – no need to run separate video infrastructure.  When a robotic camera equipped with LiveView is selected by the operator, the screen displays all shots available on the camera and a video preview from the broadcast camera as usual.  In addition, there will be a wide-angle scene view from the LiveView Spotter camera.   Touching anywhere on the LiveView image commands the pan and tilt head to centre the broadcast camera on the area touched. Dragging a finger around the image will move the head to follow the movement so of the operator.

Both Single Camera Mode and LiveView provide an enhanced operator experience, but also add a level of redundancy in the unlikely event of a Joystick panel failure – such that the TR-XT touch screen can continue to operate both for shot recall and “virtual” joystick operation
