RB12CR2 Robotic Crane

The SEEDER RB12CR2 robotic 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. Optical and dynamic collision avoidance technology makes the equipment run safety and stably. Features such as anti shake technology, noise reduction technology and AI curvilinear motion technology 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, 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.

Technical Instruction

1. 8 axis motion (left/right & up/down & back/forth of the jib, pan tilt head, zoom, focus and aperture). The camera won't accumulate errors after repeated movements.

2. Jib arm length:2.9m-4.1m, can be adjusted manually

3. Payload of the Pan & Tilt Head:12kg

4. Overall Weight:215kg

5. Power:220V,300W

6. Noise Volume:<20dB

7. Supports storage of 32 programs, 16 sequences, 256 scenes. Files can be imported and exported for backup.


Movement Specifications

Pan range of the head: ±150°, speed: 0-60°/s, precision:0.001°

Tilt range of the head: ±60°, speed:0-60°/s, precision:0.001°

Pan range of the jib: ±355°, speed:0-60°/s, precision:0.001°

Tilt range of the jib:-25°-60°, speed:0-60°/s, precision:0.001°

Zoom and focus: suitable for full servo lens, Speed: 0-52mm/s, precision: 0.001mm

1. Anti-shake technology

2. According to the starting point position and motion time, automatically calculate the curve motion trajectory and motion acceleration/deceleration function, and can achieve smooth curve motion of 16 consecutive points.

3. 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, and one-time calibration.

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

5. Automatically synchronize motor tracking latency by identifying built-in lens tracking data latency, and output synchronized tracking data.

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

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

8. AI auto targeting stage scene.

9. 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.

10. Customizable limit positions can be set for the robot arm's up, down, left, and right motion as well as the pan/tilt head's horizontal and vertical positions. Optical anti-collision technology and dynamic anti-collision technology are used to double protect the robotic crane for safe operation.

11. The chassis contains an independent control unit, allowing it to operate without a control panel.

12. The system can switch between manual and automatic operation online, outputting uninterrupted Free-D tracking data.

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

2. Virtual studio and automation studio.

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

4. Remote photography through network transmission.
