Innovision-Optics Presents the Z Shuttle Camera Tracking System
The Z Shuttle is Innovision’s most ambitious camera
tracking system to date. The Z Shuttle is a camera tracking system consisting
of a ceiling mounted shuttle that transports a camera along a track. Like its predecessor, the Super Shuttle, the Z Shuttle
camera flies over a studio or multiple rooms. However, this camera tracking
system takes the technology one giant step further with the additional feature
of a vertical arm that can drop the camera down to eye level of its subject.
The Z shuttle can travel at variable speeds of up to 1 meter (3.3 feet) per second and can be programmed to hit up to eight positions in sequence with pinpoint precision. The speed of the pan and tilt function is 90 degrees per second and the speed of the z-axis arm is 50 centimeters (1.6 feet) per second. Made out of a lightweight aluminum material, the Z Shuttle carries a high resolution Sony camera mounted to it.
Operated via a remote
small remote control panel, the Z Shuttle comes
with a touch screen control panel and a foot pedal to control the travel of the
shuttle. The touch screen panel controls the pan, tilt, zoom, and
focus settings of the camera, and is also used to program positions and
Innovision has recently installed the Z Shuttle into the newly constructed TVN 24 broadcast facility. TVN 24, Poland’s main news provider, has just recently completed construction of this state-of-the-art broadcast facility that features leading-edge production technology and news gathering systems that have yet to be used in any other TV news network in the world. The Z shuttle track at TVN 24 currently spans 131 feet long.
