Introducing the NEWSDOLLY™ robotic platform for PTZ cameras
VDESK NEWS utilizes all the tools and functionality of VDESK, supporting up to 12 inputs and allowing one person to produce sophisticated multi-camera newscasts. Ideal for higher-ed applications or minimally staffed news programs, the robotic news production system includes three PTZ cameras, and the NEWSDOLLY robotic platform for one or more of the cameras. The drag-and-drop rundown includes package playback, graphics creation and overlay, OTS and double-box displays, unlimited motion presets, Chroma-key, teleprompter software and hardware, recording and streaming.
Controlled like a PTZ camera, the NEWSDOLLY is controlled with a joystick. You can set multiple preset positions, and use the touch screen to select graphical positions on the studio floor to position and save multiple preset locations with speeds for transitions.
“There is nothing like NEWSDOLLY on the market today that provides this level of price/performance value.” Says RUSHWORKS president Rush Beesley. “NEWSDOLLY moves quickly for repositioning the camera for presets, or can creep slowly for the added dimension of smooth on-air moves.
NEWSDOLLY’s high level of price/performance value coupled with its wide-ranging and extensive feature-set makes it unique to the marketplace. See it at RUSHWORKS NAB Booth # SL12713.
