BAYERISCHER RUNDFUNK – STUDIOBOT CASE STUDY
Bayerischer Rundfunk is a public-service radio and television broadcaster, based in Munich, Germany. They decided to incorporate robotics and automation into their workflow building on the many years of experience they have had using camera robotics in their studios. The Studiobot was already proven in other studios of the ARD (SWR and NDR), and so they decided to add a Studiobot
POLYMOTION PLAYER BUNDESLIGA CASE STUDY
The DFL wanted to create an automated camera system that is able to track, follow and focus on one particular player during a match. The goal was for the camera to capture a player from head to toe, and follow him throughout the match everywhere he turns using tracking data, by using a fully automated system.
OSLO STREAMINGSENTER – POLYMOTION CHAT
Recently Oslo Streamingsenter launched a new streaming centre in Oslo, and following a recent studio upgrade, they wanted to install a system that would enhance the content they capture with their PTZ’s making the shots higher quality and more dynamic. One of the challenges they want to solve was the requirement for automation to make their services more efficient, cost-effective without compromising quality. Following consultation with MRMC Polymotion Chat was recommended a solution to their challenge.
LONDON LIVE: AFC 100 & STUDIOBOT
London Live is a local TV channel based in London, England. The channel transmits local news, current affairs, sports, arts, events and entertainment and was launched on the 31st March 2014. MRMC and London Live began discussions around ways to employ motion control robotics to realise a radically different approach to broadcast studio content acquisition and workflows.
AFC 100 AND MHC SOFTWARE DELIVER IMPROVED USER EXPERIENCE
Compared to other equipment we have used, the MRMC robotics are high-quality products and the MHC software has a lot of potential for us going forward. We recently introduced two of MRMC’s AFC 100 heads into our 8-camera set-up, which we use to film services at the Grace Church in Maryland Heights, MO, as upgrades for an older PTZ system.
ROBOTIC POD – 2021 US INAUGURATION CASE STUDY
How do you cover an event that photographers can’t access? Joe Biden’s inauguration would be a ceremony like no other as for the first time in history, patrons were banned from attending the event due to the high-risk security situation that arose from the storming of the capitol by protestors. MRMC’s robotic pod were designed for remote photography & video capture and were able to put cameras where it wouldn’t be safe – or permitted – for photographers to go to capture the crucial shots.
MRMC / NIKON RED SOX CASE STUDY: ROBOTIC POD
During the covid-19 outbreak, social distancing mandates were put in place to ban patrons at major sporting events. Professional photographers were restricted access to normal shooting positions, eliminating key positions for shooting game coverage. Eliminating shooting positions means missing key action and important moments telling the story of an MLB game. All of this results in poor fan engagement.
ROBOTIC POD M2 CASE STUDY: DIE WELT PROJECT
WELT (the biggest privately-owned news channel in Germany) who broadcast content 24 hours a day and based in Berlin, wanted to show panoramic views of the city as part of their daily broadcast segments. They wanted to feature live footage of the city’s iconic buildings such as Berliner Fernsehturm, so they teamed up with MRMC and Qvest Media, to provide a solution.
