Kumotek Robotics RoboBoom
Interactive mic arm
Setting talent in front of a mic before going live is easy. Once the show begins, they tend to move around, and they move away from their mics. RoboBoom was designed to realign with the talent. A sensor identifies the speaker's face and tracks the movement. Servo motors keep the mic aimed at the speaker to maintain better mic placement as the speaker moves. The boom can also be remotely controlled, which is useful for video shoots to reorient the microphone.
What the Pick Hits judges had to say:
"This is ideal for TV shots and remotely moving the mic boom."
"Remotely control or automatically control - always find the speaker."
