Vinten Radamec has launched a VR upgrade for its recently released FHR-35 head. The Fusion FHR-35 pan and tilt head was launched last year at IBC 2011, and was the first Vinten Radamec product to incorporate the company’s innovative Intelligent Control Engineering (ICE), which delivers unprecedented control and accuracy in an innovative and highly compact form.
The VR upgrade, designed specifically for the robotic controlled FHR-35, provides operators with a highly flexible solution suitable for a broad range of virtual reality applications, from sports to studios. The versatile FHR-35 offers simple and straightforward integration for both the VR vendor and the customer as the pan and tilt head uses Ethernet – or serial output – direct from the head, to transmit positional data to the VR render engine.
Designed for payloads up to 35.27 lbs (16kg), every aspect of the Fusion FHR-35 head was created around Vinten Radamec’s unique ICE technology. The platform provides a motion control system and drive train to deliver both the fastest and the slowest broadcast quality movement, as well as the widest pan and tilt range, with accuracy better than 0.02˚. High-resolution absolute encoders deliver accurate camera positional data suitable for the most demanding VR applications.
The ICE motion control system is also able to drive a wide range of full-servo broadcast lenses using analogue, digital or hybrid control modes.
