Ross Video Acquires Cambotics

Ross Robotics expands with recent acquisition of Cambotics

Ross Video has announced the acquisition of Cambotics, a robotic camera systems company based in Escondido, California. Cambotics joins the recently established Ross Robotics division to compliment the Furio Robo and Furio RC systems.

Founded in 2005, Cambotics is a world leader in studio camera automation technology, designing and manufacturing the world's finest automated heads and pedestals. The Cambotics products will become the CamBot Series within Ross Robotics. The CamBot Series are robust, durable and precise studio workhorses, distinguished by their ability to accept industry leading payloads, up to 200 pounds on the 700 Series pedestals.

“We are excited to welcome Cambotics founders Bob Scotto and Miles Spellman to Ross Video. These gentlemen are true pioneers in studio camera robotics and their current products represent decades of industry knowledge,” said David Ross, CEO Ross Video. “This acquisition, coupled with the acquisition of FX-Motion earlier this year, now establishes Ross as a world leader in studio camera robotics systems.”


The Robotics family already works with Ross’ existing products including OverDrive Automated Production Control System, Vision Production Switchers and XPression Graphics. Having a full array of production offerings uniquely positions Ross to provide customers a more complete solution and the opportunity to advance the state of the art in live production technology.

Cambotics founders Bob Scotto & Miles Spellman will be staying with Ross in the robotics division as the new Chief Hardware Architect and Chief Software Architect respectively.


“We are excited to join Ross Video and be an integral part of their Robotics division. This transition is a great fit both from a technology and corporate culture point perspective,” commented the Cambotics founders w. “Ross’ worldwide sales reach, excellent support and extensive business partner network will allow the CamBot line to reach its full potential in the marketplace.”
