Ross Video Launches New Furio S2 Robotics Lift at NAB 2018

Ross Video Launches New Furio S2 Robotics Lift at NAB 2018

  • New lift follows 2017 launch of flagship Furio SE product
  • 2-stage lift offers a more cost-effective entry point into track-based robotics

Ross Video is pleased to announce the launch of the new Furio S2 lift at NAB 2018. This new, more cost-effective lift follows on from the launch of the flagship Furio SE at NAB 2017 and will allow a greater number of content creators to benefit from the dynamic images and smooth camera moves that robotics enables. Full dolly systems based on this new lift option will begin at less than $100,000 with a Ross VR100 head, making robotics more accessible than ever before.

The new Furio S2 lift is based on the same core design as the 2-stage lift used in the CamBot 600XY-S2. Featuring a linear rail design for superior linearity, repeatability and reliability, the 2-stage S2 lift provides 50 cm / 20” of extension range, on a par with the original Furio legacy lift. Compatible with both the VR100 and VR600 heads, it can be paired with either the SE dolly or the BlackBird base to provide a much more affordable alternative for installations where the extra height or range of the SE lift is not required. As with all Furio Studio products, it supports virtual tracking, and is therefore perfect for Virtual Sets or Augmented Reality. The Furio S2 lift is also available as a lower cost option in the Furio Live product line, where it supports the fast and responsive FXhead, and is controlled by the remote panbar or joystick control systems.

Ross Video is moving for NAB2018! We will be on booth SL3305 in the Lower South Hall for the duration of the show.
