From the broadcast studio side, MRMC will be highlighting two new broadcast products demonstrating superior PTZ enablement. The AJS-2 Auto-Jib is a solution for enhancing shots of live content. It can be deployed with either a PTZ or a robotic head and controlled manually, through 2 degrees of semi-automation or through full automation. It can be operated as a manual jib, or through a hybrid of manual and automation where the motion paths are defined but the head or PTZ can be controlled by an operator remotely or using presets. It captures smooth ’on-air’ movement and repeatable moves with a modular design that is extremely quick to set up and quiet and smooth to operate. It is ideal for over-arching shots of crowds and live audiences or where you simply want some elevation or interesting movement.
The LLS-1 Light Lift System expands MRMC's PTZ enablement solutions by adding a vertical lift. For flexibility, the LLS-1 has floor, wall or ceiling mounting options available. With a range of height configurations, the LLS-1 can comfortably capture sitting and standing shots using the floor-based option. Visitors will also have the chance to see the Studiobot XL – a 9-axis robotics system that offers superior visual creativity to traditional dolly systems; and the AFC-100 robotic head which moves at up to 100° per second.
NAB Show 2023 will see the worldwide launch of Polymotion Relay, a cost-effective, single-operator, multi-camera control solution for circuit-based sports. Driven by a computer vision engine, Polymotion Relay makes multicam production and control simple. Set up to follow the layout of a track at a predefined speed, one operator can use Polymotion Relay to manage all camera angles, making adjustments where needed to speed and framing, while the system makes intelligent modifications on-the-fly.
Complementing Polymotion Relay, for a complete, dynamic, scalable and automated production is the Polymotion Player range of products. Polymotion Player is an automated camera-follow-camera control that allows the operator to remain focused on capturing key action shots through Camera One. Polymotion Player+ is an automated real-time Player Tracking software solution that uses powerful computer vision technology to dynamically adjust the framing of the subject and follows players on the field of play. MRMC will also be showing Polymotion Remote+ which allows for remote multi-camera control from a single interface.
