Shotoku Free-d2

Shotoku will hold demonstrations of its new virtual reality solution at IBC 2015. This next-generation technology, called Free-d2, does not require physical encoder devices attached to the camera mount's motion axes.

The system, based on advanced algorithms developed within the BBC's Research and Development centre, uses simple ceiling markers to pinpoint the exact position and orientation of the survey camera, it said.

A small camera is attached to the camera and constantly "sees" the area of ​​the lighting grid where the markers are placed. This allows you to use any steadycam mount or even handheld cameras.

On the other hand, at its stand at IBC it will show the new TP500, a pneumatic compact pedestal with a load capacity of up to 55 kilos. Its modular and robust design allows for easy transport between different locations on a set or in a street production.
