BR Remote Ltd, manufacturer of remote controlled PTZ cameras, camera heads and controllers, is to show a new multi-function, outdoor remote controlled camera at IBC, named the CB180.
The CB180 has been designed to capture live pictures from difficult locations out of doors, including those that are moving. It can be used on a boat or telescopic pole, while a production team can direct the camera from a remote studio or edit suite.
The camera is built from rugged carbon fibre with slip rings to ensure that it is weatherproof. This model is rated to both IP66 and IP67. IP66 indicates protection from heavy splashing and jets of water, while IP67 indicates that the camera is also protected against immersion in water. This means that the camera needs no extra protection in wet environments.
The CB180 contains all of the features in BR Remote’s CamBall4 camera in an aerodynamic design. In particular, it has Wide Dynamic Range, positional metadata, smart profile moves, DMX control, and advanced CCU control. A crew can therefore adjust the camera remotely and match its feed to AR, VR and graphics in a professional production.
For this outdoor model, BR Remote has added a wash and wipe feature to clean the lens, and stabilisation to steady the camera when it is used in motion.
The CB180 is the latest development in BR Remote’s range of PTZ cameras, robotic camera heads and controllers. These are used in professional broadcast and entertainment, and especially in wild life filming, sports, reality TV and news. See BR Remote at IBC in Hall 12, stand 12.F63.
