At A Glance
Our CamBot family of free-roaming XY pedestals offers three distinct choices to suit a wide variety of studio layouts and capital budgets: the mid-sized 600XY-S2 and 600XY-S3, along with the original high capacity 700XY.
All three are built on the same proven pedestal base, which features the industry’s best floor repeatability, fast and easy targeting, and a straightforward design that ensures years of reliable, low-maintenance operation.
CamBot XY allows the camera to be positioned anywhere on the studio floor, while providing remote control/programming of all axes, including pan, tilt, zoom, focus, elevation, and floor position.
Perfect Automation Partner
CamBot’s consistent preset recalls combined with an open API and networked control architecture make them the perfect camera system for Automated Production Control solutions, including Ross OverDrive, and all major third-party solutions.
Offering the highest maximum net payload at 90 kgs (200 lbs), two head options and two choices of lifts, CamBot XY pedestals accommodate payloads of all shapes and sizes.
CamBot’s unique two-wheeled design uses differential steering to eliminate the rapid accumulation of floor-error that plagues caster-based designs. Unlike external bolt-on floor-positioning systems, it requires no external markers (other than a single floor target) or sensors, yet still provides the best accuracy in the industry.
Homing is based on image analysis technology that requires zero maintenance, provides millimeter accuracy, and takes just seconds to complete.
Hands On Driving
CamBot’s local control module instantly converts the system to a manually operated pedestal and pan-tilt head. Because motors and encoders remain engaged at all times, the robot continues to track its position, eliminating the need for re-homing once it is returned to full robotic control. It is the simplest, most convenient manual control solution available today.
All CamBot XY-pedestals offer high resolution virtual tracking data on all seven axes. Combined with its unbeatable floor accuracy, it’s ideal for augmented reality and virtual sets. The pedestals always know where they are, even in local mode, and continue to send accurate tracking data on all axes (including XY) when operated manually.
CamBot now utilises the full power of MotionDirector, providing naturally smooth and synchronized key-framed moves, built around gracefully curved floor trajectories; unique signature shots by recording manual (joystick) movements overtop of keyframed moves and the flexibility to make in-flight manual corrections from the joystick panel.
