Shotoku Right On Track
Shotoku Broadcast Systems unveiled a host of new products at IBC 2015...

I

ncluded in the line-up is the
lightweight TP500 pedestal and
'Free-d²', encompassing the company's
latest
Virtual
Studio
tracking
technology.
Free-d2 represents a new generation
of tracking systems that do not require
physical encoder devices attached to
the camera support's moving axes. The
system, based on advanced algorithms
developed within the BBC's worldrenowned Research and Development
centre, uses simple ceiling markers to
precisely determine the exact position
and orientation of the studio camera.
The system provides highly accurate
and constantly referenced (i.e.

absolute) position tracking. Regardless
of where the studio camera is
positioned, the system instantly knows
its exact location and orientation in
all eight axes. The position tracking
data never drifts, no matter how many
complex moves or hours of operation
the camera has.
The small Free-d2 'spotter' camera
is attached to the broadcast camera
in such a way that it does not interfere
in any way, and constantly views the
lighting grid area where markers are
positioned. Being attached directly
to the camera means that any type of
camera support can be used, including
Steadicam or even handheld cameras.
Low-cost markers
are made of simple
reflective
material
and can be placed
anywhere within the
studio lighting grid
or ceiling area and
after an initial studio
calibration is carried
Shotoku's next generation Free-d2 tracking system
out, the system will

typically never require calibration
again. The company encourages
interested parties to visit the stand for
a full demonstration.
Alongside Free-d² Shotoku are
also presenting the new TP500 - a
compact and lightweight pneumatic
pedestal - to the European market for
the first time. The pedestal, capable
of supporting camera payloads of
up to 55 kg. (121 lbs.), ranges from
665mm (26.2 inches) to 1,485mm (58.5
inches) in height, and is suitable for
multi-location use such as OB, studio
or event production. After the initial
production run sold out following the
NAB show, demand for the TP500 is
expected to be high.
As always, the company will be
demonstrating their full range of
robotic pan & tilt heads, control
systems and the popular 'SmartTrack'
the company's popular rail system
which has most recently been installed
at, and is being used seven days
a week by, a major Scandinavian
broadcaster.

Shotoku TP500
pedestal with
SX300 EFP head

SmartTrack is a fully integrated
product based on the core track-based
technology of MAT, Germany and is
available as either a floor based or
ceiling mounted solution, in straight or
curved configurations.
The full range of Shotoku's products
are available throughout IBC 2015 on
Stand 11.F40.
