SEEDER is proud to supply the RB12CR3 robotic crane system to South Korea's BTN TV station for their virtual studio. This deployment is particularly significant as it marks the first use of robotics capable of XR virtual shooting in television news programs in South Korea.

 In the past few days, SEEDER's team has meticulously carried out installation and training at BTN's studio, ensuring seamless integration and operational readiness for the upcoming broadcasts. The first live broadcast task was successfully completed on the fourth day after the equipment installation.

Located in Seoul, Korea, BTN is the world's only non-sectarian Korean Buddhist TV channel which focuses on spreading the dharma through the media, warming the hearts and minds of viewers, and stimulating a healthier society. The integration of SEEDER's robotic system into BTN's studio promises to elevate viewer engagement and deliver immersive storytelling experiences.


SEEDER's robotic crane brings a new dimension to studio shooting, enriching scenes with its real-time XR virtual shooting capabilities. We are proud that our robotic camera systems achieve exceptionally tracking accuracy of 8,300,000/360°, thanks to SEEDER R&D team's use of 23-bit absolute value encoders, ensuring seamless integration with AR, VR, XR, and MR devices. This precision eliminates the need for additional optical tracking, streamlining the production process and enhancing efficiency.


Traditionally, XR shooting methods relied on a combination of robotics and optical tracking for on-site shooting. However, SEEDER's proprietary tracking technology has redefined XR shooting by meeting high-precision tracking requirements without the added complexity of optical tracking equipment. This innovation not only improves shooting accuracy but also reduces operational costs, making it a game-changer in the industry.


SEEDER remains committed to advancing technical excellence and providing comprehensive services to its clients. This partnership with BTN underscores SEEDER's dedication to delivering cutting-edge solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of studio production, ensuring that clients receive the most ideal equipment for their projects.
