Shotoku To Showcase
Next Phase Developments

At NAB, Shotoku will demonstrate its SmartPed Robotic Pedestal with Absolute Navigation options
that will join self-contained and powerful pan/tilt heads, enhancements to control systems,
and highly adaptable height drive...

S

hotoku USA, Shotoku Broadcast
Systems'
North
American
operation, will launch the next
phase in technical and operational
developments for robotic control
systems at NAB 2020.
The international manufacturer of
high-quality, easy-to-use, robust and
reliable robotic and manual camera
support systems will demonstrate
advancements that incorporate an IP
interface into its flagship SmartPed
robotic pedestal; a self-contained
and easy to connect pan/tilt head;
numerous enhancements incorporated
into the Company's TR-XT control
system and will also highlight its
height drive and pan/tilt head ideal for
legislative applications.
SmartPed Fully Robotic Pedestal
SmartPed with Absolute Navigation
is perfect for those applications where
referencing the fully robotic pedestal
is inconvenient or the design of the
studio leaves no scope for a floor tile
reference position. SmartPed now
comes with two optional additions
depending on the environment - AN-I
is an IP interface within SmartPed
enabling it to interface to existing
external optical tracking systems
such as Mosys StarTracker or Stype
RedSpy using the absolute tracking
information
to
reference
and
adjust the pedestals own internal
navigation systems. AN-S provides a
full integrated solution, including the
optical tracking system for situations
where customers do not already have
installed optical tracking.

Enhanced TR-XT Control System

TG-18i Integrated
Pan/Tilt Head

TG-18i Integrated Pan/Tilt Head
Self-Contained, High Payload, Simple
Connectivity: The TG-18i, the latest
version of the hugely successful TG-18
studio pan/tilt head, provides a fully
integrated head with high payload
and simple connectivity. All the key
features which have made the TG-18
so successful remain - such as perfect
motion and full manual override
with fluid damping - all in a new selfcontained package.
TR-XT Control System
Get the Picture! The TR-XT Control
System will be shown with multiple
enhancements that will further
expand the capabilities of this already
powerful and intuitive control system.
LiveView
The TR-XT, the flagship control
system of the Shotoku platform, will be
demonstrated with the new LiveView
option that uses a secondary IP video
camera to provide a wide-angle scene
view for each camera. LiveView
enables operators to command
heads to new positions simply
by touching on a wide-angled
live video view of the studio,
smoothly repositioning the
head towards the selected
presenter, guest or other
area of interest.
Studio Zones
Studio zones easily define areas
within a studio into which cameras

may or may not travel. Zones have
a dynamic understanding of studio
equipment to avoid no-go areas and
potential collisions. In addition to each
SmartPed's unique on-board collision
avoidance system, Studio Zones
offers a higher level of control for the
operator to ensure smooth and safe
operation within the environment.
Full Automation
Shotoku will be showing its enhanced
automation
interfaces
allowing
not just pre-set shot recall but full
camera adjustment on-the-fly from
external systems, even including facerecognition and tracking systems.
This advanced technology brings the
concept of operator-less control into
reality!
TG-27/MicroPDU
Power for the Powerful: The TG-27/
MicroPDU pan/tilt head and power
supply, the de-facto standard for
Legislative TV systems, provides a
high-end all over solution for any size
legislature or conference system when
used in conjunction with Shotoku's
TR-S control panel and its fully
automated Orchestra control system.
In use every day at many of the world's
highest profile national and regional
legislatures, houses of worship and
global corporate organizations.
TI-12 Elevator Unit
Going up? Shotoku's TI-12 elevator
unit accommodates virtually any
studio pedestal. The TI-12 Height Drive
is the world's only truly adaptable
height drive able to attach to and
elevate columns on a wide range of
pedestals, of other manufacturers
and of different ages and designs in
addition to Shotoku's own TP-200.
Adding height control to a new or
existing pedestal brings added value
to customers who demand not only
super-smooth robotic operation but
need to maintain manual pedestal
operation at the touch of a button.
"Shotoku's position as one of the
world's most innovative robotic
camera system developers is a result
of the core robotics systems developed

over several years, but also the
continual enhancement, expansion and
adaptation we put into the products
to ensure they continue to deliver
the highest levels of performance,
reliability and flexibility for our many
clients around the world." explains
James Eddershaw, CEO Shotoku USA.
"This year, amongst numerous other
enhancements, we are excited to
show our extremely popular SmartPed
pedestal with flexible Absolute
Navigation options, as well as a host
of other advancements developed to
keep our customers competitive and
successful."
LiveView option for the
TR-XT control system
