Telemetrics Robotic Remote Camera System At Super Bowl

Amongst all of the fast-paced action of the biggest game of the 2019 NFL season, two new additions to the remotely controlled robotic camera line-up from Telemetrics were mounted high atop Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium for a nationally recognized news agency. Inside two separately located Telemetrics WP-HOU-A9 Weatherproof Camera Housings, a Sony Alpha α9 full-frame mirrorless camera installed on the Telemetrics PT-CP-S5 Compact Pan/Tilt Head was used to capture still photos.

The application was the first such use of this system in a live sports setting, providing proof of its reliability, robustness, and ability to acquire unique images remotely using a Telemetrics RCCP-MJ Robotic Camera Control Panel. A network interface allows users to control the camera and access the images online, while Ethernet, USB and serial interfaces are also included.
“We’ve been working closely with Sony and a major news service to develop this remotely controlled system, which provides a fully integrated system that is ideal for a number of hard to reach camera positions that provide highly unique and creative POV shots,” said Michael Cuomo, Vice President of Telemetrics. “As its performance at the big game proved, when the goal is to get it right the first time, Telemetrics has the outdoor robotic camera system you can depend on to reliably capture the action.”

The new PT-CP-S5 A9 Weatherproof P/T Head Bundle is a fully integrated, aesthetically pleasing robotic camera package that includes a compact pan/tilt head and weatherproof camera housing to fully protect and control the user’s choice of camera and zoom lens. The system’s robotic servo controls use motors of ultra-high position and velocity accuracy, which makes it the perfect choice for live sports and security applications where there’s no room for failure, while the compact, tightly sealed design satisfies a variety of demanding commercial and industrial applications where high reliability and smooth, accurate camera performance are critical.
