RB18TS Robotic Telescopic Crane

The SEEDER RB18TS robotic telescopic crane system is developed for automatic shooting of AR, VR, XR, MR or real scene in various broadcast studios, remote photography, government, education, event live and so on. The length of the robotic telescopic jib arm is 2.5m-6.0m, which can be adjusted automatically according to the actual use environment. Adopt new type of robotic pan / tilt head and robot chassis, electronic level system is equipped as standard. Noise volume at the the maximum speed of the system is less than 30dB, realizing all functions of the robotic crane shooting, and can be widely used for news and thematic studio program recording. Optical and dynamic collision avoidance technology makes the equipment run safety and stably. Features such as anti shake technology, AI curvilinear motion technology and one-time calibration ensure the shooting of complex motion video and meet every need of professional broadcast television studios. The robotic control panel can control 8 axis motions of XYZ, robotic pan tilt head, zoom, focus and aperture through the network. It can control up to 8 robotics, preset 32 programs, 16 sequences, and 256 scenes. The system includes two sets of control systems, namely built-in and external, which can be quickly switched for use. It comes with an emergency operation button as standard. It allows an operator to easily create dynamic moves such as W or S without losing camera orientation. The saved movements can be triggered with just one click. or even automatically. New movements can be created within minutes and existing movements can be modified easily.
