Studio 7 Productions LTD Doesn’t Gamble With Studio Robotics Solution

Bright Space Technology is the UK agency and European sales & support arm of Telemetrics

When Studio 7, the premier solutions provider for the Maltese regions, was commissioned by a client to provide a secure studio environment for a new daily Lottery transmission they didn’t gamble with their choice of solutions and came to Bright Space Technologies and the Telemetrics robotics solutions they have represented for nearly 15 years.

The commission was to provide a 3 camera HD system within a budget, after discussions the system was designed and costed using Sony EX-3 cameras. The solution required remote control of the standard lens as well as remote access to the camera paint functions. In addition to these, the ability to pan / tilt / rise and travel along a 5 meter track was also needed. Timothy Bartolo Parnis of Studio 7 had chosen the Telemetrics solution because not only did it provide all these aspects, but also provided the unique LIU-EX3 lens control system. These external drives units allowed the fixed lens to be driven by the robotics and recall presets saving the cost of replacements.

Camera 1 is a fixed position unit using a Telemetrics CLIU (Camera Lens Interface Unit) to interface to the remote paint and lens controls. Camera 2 is mounted on a Telemetrics HP-S4 PT head to give positional movement, as well as the same lens & paint access functions as offered by the CLIU. Camera 3 is the most dynamic of the set, mounted on an HP-S4 in turn on a Televator rising pedestal which is driven along a 5-meter CTS linear track. Control of this dynamic solution is provided by the Telemetrics CP-ST-S studio touch screen and CP-D3A digital proportional desk top joy stick panel. On-screen thumb nail images provide a visual reference for shot recall with custom labels for the story board sequence.
