Robotic mounts

In the air studio we chose small footprint cameras with RF-controlled robotic mounts. These were installed high on walls and on top of the equipment countertop rack. Three of the cameras were used for close-up shots, however one was fitted with a wide-angle lens for a bird's-eye view of the entire studio. The robotic mounts allowed the TV producer to be the camera operator and obtain different shots without being in the studio. Full wall-to-wall graphics with station and sponsorship logos were positioned directly behind the hosts, providing a backdrop for the set that included a wall mounted 42" LCD TV. To enhance the show, LED lighting was chosen for its brightness, low power and heat requirements. It was important that all video and control cabling was out of sight and hidden from any camera shots. Standard construction cable TV-type wall plates gave the install a clean look. Quality LCD wall mounts and hidden receptacles added to the design. Finally, a smaller 19" LCD TV was installed on the side of the countertop equipment rack to provide the hosts with a preview video feed.

The four cameras are mounted out of the way and are barely noticed.
