Cable camera system Robycam is now available with compact 4K cameras. Visitors of the Broadcast Solutions event - Broadcast Innovation Day in 1 June 2017, will have the chance to see the system in action together with a Grass Valley LDX C86N camera plus Canon CJ12x4.3 optics.

At the event Robycam is installed with full function in the companies’ newly added hall 3. Broadcast Products, a division of Broadcast Solutions, is offering the Robycam system for sale and rental. As part of a series of events Broadcast Solutions hosts a Broadcast Innovation Day at their headquarters in Germany. The one-day event will comprise the largest number of OB Vans in production in Europe, exhibitions, panel discussions, product presentations as well as networking events and is the place to be for all broadcast industry members to inform about the latest technology in broadcasting.

Robycam is a 3D camera system consisting of two elements. Gyro-stabilided camera dollies, which make 1-2D or 3D camera movements possible, and cable camera systems, cranes, sleighs or rails. Together with a powerful remote control, the systems produce spectacular images. During Broadcast Innovation Day the company will present a Robycam 3D system that allows for 360° movements in all axes.

At the event the system is equipped with Grass Valley’s LDX C86N, a native 4K/UHD (3840x2160) compact camera that works as a self-contained camera system with no need for additional base station or external processing unit. The largest Robycam 3D system is ideally suited for large indoor or outdoor events. It uses four real-time controlled automatic winches and a sophisticated motion control system that allows fast camera movements up to 8 m/s and with millimetre-accuracy in all axes. With its transmission power action radiuses of up to 250m x 250m and more are possible.

Together with an OCP the Robycam control unit has full access to all camera and lens functions.
