The Whisper Head is MRMC’s latest iteration of compact robotic heads, designed to integrate with a range of small cameras
The head is unique in that it is completely silent and therefore lends itself to use in situations where traditional PTZ heads would not be a suitable option – such as certain live shows, corporate events, house of worship or for security and surveillance situations. The Whisper is also well suited to more traditional broadcast requirements.
Able to accommodate camera payloads of up to 4kg, the Whisper Head can move extremely fast, with zero latency. Pan & tilt manual control speed of 0.05° to 180°/s on both axes. Using MRMC’s control software (MHC) via Ethernet, the unit lends itself perfectly to live broadcasts & events which require fast operation of camera positions. With a touchscreen device or traditional joystick console, the user has options to set and save preset positions.
Through MHC you have a single interface to control both camera and pan/tilt head. The Whisper Head gives full integration with the camera via visca protocol to give control over aperture, shutter, ISO, zoom and focus and many other functions.
At 6.5kg it is a lightweight unit that’s easily transportable. Enclosed in die-cast aluminium, the weatherproof (IP67 sealed) robotic head is also useable for permanent outdoor installations, with a temperature range of -10ºC to +45°C.
