Normally re-positioning requires a full X-Y tracking pedestal. Our patented SPi-Touch system expands the capability of the standard PTZF sensing system to enable quick and easy re-positioning of the camera to pre-defined positions, without the need for real-time XYH tracking.
During the set-up of the system, up to 6 camera positions may be defined and marked on the studio floor. During the broadcast, it is then possible for the camera operator to re-position the pedestal in one of the defined positions and simply tell the VR tracking system through the SPi-Touch user interface on the pan bar which position the pedestal is now in. The VR data will instantly update to the new position, and the VR set will move to the correct position for subsequent PTZF tracking on air.
Our patented SPi-TOUCH also offers support for our latest 2-point visual referencing, making the reference procedure of XYH tracking pedestals and cranes even simpler, no longer requiring any reference floor tile.
The system can be applied to any “static” camera on a tripod or other non-VR pedestal from Shotoku or any third party camera supports.
- Convenient X-Y origin point referencing. Only 2 points needed to calibrate!
- The ability to fine-tune controls at an arm’s length.
- The ability to store 5 pattern offsets
- Compatibility with all Shotoku VR systems
