RoboCams allow the unfettered coverage of events and people with minimal intrusion. A great RoboCam Operator monitors the content of the show and accurately frames the shot accordingly. When emotions run high, the RoboCam operator has to be able to make smooth, on-air movements that fit the drama of the moment.
It is not the equipment that makes for great RoboCam Coverage, it's the operator. I pay close attention to the dialogue so I anticipate the actions that may occur and plan accordingly. I also know how to utilize the preset systems so the camera can be quickly set to a position and focal length that works consistently.
A great RoboCam Operator must be capable of multitasking and have the finesse to make accurate pan and tilt moves with smooth zooms and sharp focus. I have the experience and skills to make the Robotic camera a vital part of the camera mix, one that can be consistently relied upon to get the right shot.
I don't need to be directed every moment and take the initiative to follow the event and people. In multi-camera environments I take into consideration what shots the other cameras have and make every effort to exclude other cameras and not to have a matching shot.
These cameras are small enough that they can be hidden through clever blinds provided by your art department, and capable of operating both indoors and outdoors. They can be easily transported and set up in a matter of few minutes, or the system can be semi-permanently installed so it's detection is minimized.
RoboCams have come a long way from their security camera beginnings. Most feature motors and servo systems that allow smooth and accurate zooms, focus, pans and tilts. There are still zoom and focus limitations unless full broadcast quality lenses are used, but the lenses in most of the higher grade melded units is now good enough to be capable of high quality on-air moves with the right operator.
Because I am also a video engineer I can paint the cameras so they match, making the post process more streamlined.
I have the experience and strong technical knowledge to deliver exceptional robotic system placement and operation.
