Camera Corps Q-Ball Captures Reaction To Birth Of Royal Baby martedì, 23 Luglio 2013 - 07:52 PM - 8 Months, 3 ago - 18 Letture - top stories - 1-CreativeCow (London, UK--July 23, 2013) Q-Ball remotely controlled camera equipment from Camera Corps (a Vitec Group company) televised the world's newsmedia as they converged on London to report the birth of the new heir to the crown of the United Kingdom. BBC Television positioned the system to capture high-definition footage of the entrance to St Mary's Hospital, London, on 22 July, and of reporters, television camera crews and photographers covering the event. Images both of the hospital entrance and the assembled newsmedia were televised live and recorded for subsequent broadcast, including nationwide news coverage the same evening. "Camera crews attending this type of event traditionally find themselves working in conditions comparable with a rugby scrum," explains Camera Corps Managing Director Laurie Frost. "Q-Ball gave the BBC crew much greater freedom in where the camera was positioned. The pan/tilt/zoom head was mounted on a lamp post, ensuring stability and a clear field of view. The system was then operated not from the roadside but from the much more professional environment of a satellite news vehicle where the video output could be viewed under control-room monitoring conditions. The Q-Ball with its integral pan/tilt/zoom/focus system is suitable both for indoor and outdoor use so was fully able to contend with the 30 degree Celsius summer day which, by British standards, constituted a heat wave."
