Your Complete Guide to Camera Robotics

Bringing Over 50 Years of Motion Control Excellence to Broadcast

Camera robotics is an established technology in the world of broadcast, yet MRMC offers a very key difference from other solutions available. With over 50 year’s working in leading-class motion control and studio robotics, no other supplier in the industry can deliver such high-quality movement to the broadcast market.

Our range of broadcast robotic heads, rails, and studio arms allow creative and engineering teams to add something extra to the way that their content is captured, whether that be exceptional speed, precise, repeatable moves, smooth and natural capture, or remote control and operation.

Where Robotics Fit Within The Shifting Broadcast Landscape

Where Robotics Fit Within The Shifting Broadcast Landscape

In today’s media landscape, studio productions are increasingly coming up against the requirement to ‘do more’ with existing resources, teams, and budget. Engineering teams are being asked to find ways of increasing creative output and points of difference within an incredibly competitive market.

There is a growing shift in the industry from an Opex to Capex model, pushing forward with the rise of uncompressed IP infrastructure and cloud/software- based technologies. While camera robotics heads, tracks, and towers are an established technology within the broadcast market, there are specific advantages and ways that these tools can be designed into a system that will help grow production and create efficiencies over the longer term.

Often cost-effective when compared to traditional studio camera systems, combining the right range
of robotics kit means that shows can be set up in advance with minimal repositioning.

Empower Your Operators

Overlaying your robotics systems with softwaren means high-end broadcast shows that need to be produced by entire galleys of different people, but are constrained by resources or budget, can easily increase the number of camera angles captured to make the production more dynamic. These additional cameras can also be switched by a single operator.

This also means that a single camera operator can simultaneously control multiple cameras that are not on air but used to capture content for additional interest or support OTT services. Take this a step further and overlay the set-up with automation and computer vision technology that lets users genuinely multitask.

Automation Lets Teams Do More

Smooth, Natural, Automated Movement

Smooth, Natural, Atuomated Movement

Many of our customers are seeking to become more effcient while being able to create great content.

Automating more of your camera movement allows users to move on considerably from locked off-camera positions and add unique motion to their capture.

MRMC products enable productions to grow, without the need for vast amounts of extra resource. For example, Grace Church in Maryland Heights, MO, recently introduced two of MRMC’s AFC 100 heads into its 8-camera set-up as upgrades for an older PTZ system.

“We’ve found that having one operator controlling the two AFC-100 heads with both live motion and pre-set moves was the best fit for our shooting style. It has given the operator improved control over live moves and produces smooth camera movements.” Ron Krause, Technical Director at Grace Church.

Adding quiet and smooth movement to your productions means broadcast studios and live events such as concerts, festivals and houses of worship can increase the value of their output with minimal effort.

Modular track options designed for studio, event and mixed production environments are an ideal solution for customers looking for either fixed or portable setups, with variety of mounting options, such as the floor, ceiling or wall.

In addition to offering all the benefits of streamlining the production, the system integrates with graphics systems. When combined with its creative potential, the built-in ability MRMC Robotics to provide positional data takes this system to an entirely different level.

All our systems have encoding built in to provide positional data, or work with Ncam, Stype, and Mo-sys for XR environments.
