The power of Shotoku’s robotic camera systems lies not only in the quality and performance of the individual components like P&T heads and control panels, but in the way the overall system interconnects.
Inherently designed to offer not only immediate, accurate response to every operator input, Shotoku’s control architecture ensures that no single point of failure among devices or within the network can affect the operation of an entire system.
Features like Back-Up Link within the TR-XT controller and Resilient Network Interfaces (RNI) make sure that broadcasters and parliaments can rely on the system to perform at the highest levels, even when things don’t go to plan in the interconnection between robotic equipment and the often remotely located control rooms.
Today, all high-end robotic systems rely on IP networking for distributed control, only Shotoku offers true protection against PC hardware or network issues that could otherwise disconnect entire control systems from all connected robotics in the system.
Watch these short explainer videos to learn more about the way Shotoku systems achieve this unique capability, and understand just how scalable the TR-XT shots database system is.
