Key Features

Simply Your Workflow

Polycam Chat is a camera solution for small studios. Controlling up to 6 robotic heads from one operator stadium, Chat can be used as a flexible broadcast solution.

Adaptable, Automated System

Whether your requirements are traditional news room, standing presenter led, or magazine format show, Polycam Chat can help streamline this work-flow.

Replicate Natural Movement

An operator has several tools inside Polycam Chat to replicate a natural camera movement. For example, after framing their subject, a ‘static zone’ can be set to control how far the subject can move before the camera starts to follow it. The speed of this move can also be controlled in line with the production requirements.

Flexible and Easy to Use

Polycam Chat can utilise presets to help locate and frame subjects. This can include off frame positions for graphics insertions for news or sports programming or set camera positions for intros or interviews.

Additionally, for the pop-up studio, a remote production workflow can be used with the operator managing the Polycam Chat system over IP from the main production facility.

Use Your Existing Cameras

Any combination of the MRMC Robotics range can be used with Polycam Chat.

For customers who already have chosen their cameras they can simply add them to our AFC100 platform. This will turn the camera into a fully automated robotic head with pan, tilt, zoom and focus. This delivers the same consistent ‘look and feel’ in production with the added benefit of precision.

One Operator

The Polycam solution comes in either a 1U Polycam Server (which supports up to 3 tracking heads) or a 2U Polycam Server (which supports up to 6). Simply use your existing cameras on one of MRMC Robotic heads and connect. The interface has been designed to work with either a touchscreen or a standard keyboard and mouse. One operator can easily control Polycam Chat and additional operators’ consoles can be added.

Simple UI

With Polycam Chat software, automatic zones can be set per camera to ensure the subject is framed correctly and if they move beyond a set radius the camera automatically follows them. Limits can also be set so that if the subject moves out of the studio space the camera simply stops following and returns to it’s default position.
