Telemetrics (www.telemetricsinc.com) has announced the release of its latest pan/tilt head, known as the PT-RM-1, which offers functionality ideal in traditional studio environments and in shooting sporting events. It is a brushless 360° capable pan/tilt head that offers a belt drive system that guarantees a smooth and quiet operation, including heavy duty bearings. The PT-RM-1 also provides fluid movement when used in manual mode.
“Our new PT-RM-1 has been engineered for capturing fast action in live sporting events or studio settings,” said Telemetrics Vice President and General Manager Anthony Cuomo. “Its many features provide robust solutions to the demanding requirements of even the most challenging situations.”
Aside from providing motion record playback or motion through sequence of position, the PT-RM-1 also offers various operating speeds, as well as a velocity range of 0.005°/second to 90°/second. Its acceleration speed stands at up to 180°/second. Its multi-axis control includes tilt, pan, focus, zoom, track, iris, Televator, master pedestal and dolly. The PT-RM-1 is capable of storing up to 255 pre-sets, while its pre-set recall function uses pre-programmed acceleration parameters to provide an on-the-fly time parameter, which enables all axes to simultaneously start and stop.
The control of the lens and the camera is digital or analog serial through RS-422, RS-232 or 10/100 BaseT Ethernet. Powered by a 48V DC source, the PT-RM-1’s DC-DC converter delivers appropriate power levels to the camera, pan/tilt head, optional teleprompter, lens and other auxiliary robotic equipment.
For easy managing of cables, the PT-RM-1 Pan/Tilt Head offers a provision for harnessing serial/Ethernet control, power, gunlock, video and prompter video cables right at the Pan/Tilt unit’s base. The PT-RM-1 can be installed inverted or upright and is capable of supporting a load of up to 35 pounds.
