Fujinon Intros Pan/Tilt System For Sony HDC-X300 CameraProvides remote control of black balance, shutter speed and other features (April 13, 2005)
At NAB 2005, Fujinon will introduce the new EPT-7G-H2A pan/tilt camera system, specially designed for Sonys HDC-X300 half-inch HD camera. When used with Fujinons EOP-102J-60B four-head controller, it enables remote control over major features of the HDC-X300, including black balance, white balance, shutter speed, gain adjustment and color bars. The EPT-7G-H2A is ideally suited to such applications as broadcasting, video conferencing, church productions and government cable channel production.
The EPT-7G-H2A pan/tilt system includes an RS-485 interface and a pan range of 300 degrees. It pans at 25 degrees a second and tilts at 20 degrees a second. Camera positions can be preset and stored before production begins, but all positions and the shot list can be adjusted as needed once production begins. It features a load capacity of 4 kg/8.8 lbs. and a DC servo drive system.
Operators can use Fujinons EOP-102J-60 controller in conjunction with the EPT-7G-H2A for even more control over the Sony HDC-X300 camera. The EOP-102J-60 provides a variable-speed joystick, rocker switch, and potentiometer as well as close, open, auto, and remote iris controls. It comes with a 32-shot per head memory and allows users to control camera on/off positions, shutter speed, gain adjust, color bar, and black and white levels.
?The EPT-7G-H2A pan/tilt system operates in perfect synch with Sonys HDC-X300 camera, giving operators precise control, said Dave Waddell, Marketing Manager for Fujinon. ?When used with the EOP-102J-60 controller, the applications of the system are almost limitless.
As with previous pan/tilt models from Fujinon, the new EPT-7G-H2A operates extremely quietly, a considerable benefit for videoconferences and local cable coverage of government meetings. It features an acoustic noise level of only NC40db.
