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 motion 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.

1. Anti-shake technology

2. AI curvilinear motion

3. AI auto targeting stage scene

4. Optical and dynamic dual collision avoidance technology

5. Both the head and the chassis are configured with electronic leveling systems to facilitate precise calibration for the virtual tracking system.

6. Absolute controller records motion positions and tracking data with tracking precision <0.000043° (8,300,000/360°). There is no accumulated error in the tracking data even after multiple power on/off cycles. Tracking data can set the crane length, pan/tilt calibration data, and reverse tracking data feature. The transition VR/AR system application and one-time calibration.

7. Support Canon and Fujinon full servo lenses, control zoom, focus and aperture functions, and retrieve the lens built-in tracking data. Automatic lens delay.

8. RS422 and directional UDP dual output high-precision Free-D tracking data are connected with AR, VR, XR and MR devices.

9. Standard TCP / IP network protocols that can be controlled by third-party equipment or system.

10. When the crane body and the pan/tilt head are moving and shooting at the same time, Canon and Fujinon full-servo lenses can achieve AI automatic focus tracking.

11. Modular design, no tools required for disassembly and installation, and installation can be completed in fifteen minutes.

12. The robotic master unit has a built-in operating system and 7-inch touchscreen panel, allowing it to operate independently without an external control panel.

13. Supports storage of 32 programs, 16 sequences, 256 scenes. Files can be imported and exported for backup. 15. When the jib arm and pan/tilt head move simultaneously during shooting, Canon and Fujinon full servo lenses can achieve automatic focus tracking with AI.

1. Automation studios and virtual studios.

2. News, weather, thematic studio, government, education, event, etc.

3. OB van, large studio, large scale activity.

4. Remote photography through network transmission.
