Telemetrics Offers Full Robotics Control
Of Blackmagic Design's URSA Camera
A

t the recent 2019 NAB Show
New York, Telemetrics, a leader
in camera robotics and control
products, showed its S5 series of servomechanical pan/tilt camera head fully
controlling a Blackmagic Design URSA
4K/UHD camera.
This means that users of this and
other Blackmagic cameras can now
take additional advantage of their
investment by pairing the camera with
a Telemetrics PT-LP-S5, PT-HP-S5 or
PT-CP-S5 pan/tilt head and be assured
of full remote control of the camera
and lens in a robotic camera studio
setting.
Telemetrics stands as one of only
a few companies that can control
the URSA camera in a robotics
environment via its SDI stream.
This allows Telemetrics' pan/tilt
heads seamless command of the
Blackmagic Design camera's many
features, including full paint and
exposure controls, and facilitates a
tight and highly precise integration

between the Telemetrics pan/tilt head
and the camera.
"Telemetrics is always looking for
new ways to help customers achieve
their goal of automating their camera
operations within any physical or
virtual studio setting," said Michael
Cuomo, Vice President of Telemetrics.
"As we do with other professional
cameras, we're happy to now offer

complete robotics control of the
Blackmagic Design URSA camera,
which is increasingly being used in
studios across the globe for its highquality video, ease of use and costeffective price."
All of Telemetrics' pan/tilt heads
are tailored for broadcast studios,
government,
and
large
room
surveillance, and ensure high reliability
and smooth and accurate robotic
camera performance for a wide range
of remote-control applications.

ITV Sport Deploys LiveU Technology
At Rugby World Cup

LiveU at ITV Sport Rugby World Cup

I

TV Sport, premier UK sports
producer for the ITV network,
has turned to LiveU to provide an
enhanced viewer experience at the
2019 Rugby World Cup (RWC) and as a
tertiary disaster recovery (DR) solution,
backing up satellite and fibre feeds.
ITV Sport is using portable LU600
HEVC units around the country in
three teams, each providing a range
of additional material beyond match
coverage.
These roving teams, with embedded
reporters, send their material direct to
ITV Sport in the UK for both edits and
live reports. This enables the producer
to concentrate on the content without
having to worry about how the material
gets back to the UK. Additionally,
highlights presentation links are also
sometimes fed via LiveU.
Roger Pearce, Technical Director,
Sport, ITV Sport Productions, said:
"We've used LiveU with our reporting
teams for a number of years
successfully to enhance coverage. At

this year's RWC we have two separate
jobs for LiveU: live/store/forward
material from our reporting teams and
DR feeds from our presentation studios
and OBs."
Pearce explains that the idea to use
it as a traditional contribution path
only came to the forefront when they
were looking at low-cost options to
provide high-quality DR feeds that are
completely diverse to normal fibre and
satellite delivery. After testing using
existing LiveU infrastructure, it proved
a simple and cost-effective solution,
according to Pearce.
The LiveU DR setup is two-fold. ITV
Sport has deployed an LU600 and
LiveU Xtender active external antenna
(the first time in Japan) for the tertiary
backup direct to their playout provider
Red Bee Media in the UK.
Secondly, at ITV Sport's Maidstone
Central Apparatus Room, a receiving
LU600 and another Xtender can be
used to send a feed from there to their
playout provider should they be unable

to use traditional links.
Pearce added: "The transmission DR
feeds workflow is important to us as it
provides a usable feed at a reasonable
cost. For events like the RWC where
failure is not an option, it's a valuable
tool to ensure we deliver our coverage
reliably to the viewer. For our roving
teams LiveU gives them the freedom
to roam, and flexibility to get material
quickly to air. The opportunity to
use LiveU to provide cost-effective

contribution feeds has been very
successful and we look forward to their
future developments."
LiveU's UK partner, Garland Partners,
assisted ITV Sport by upgrading their
units to full international specification
and provided a pool of cellular data
from local access Japanese operator
SIM cards for the whole tournament.
Garland also supplied an additional
UK SIM card data pool for the UK
Maidstone Xtender.
