Panasonic & Tecnopoint are Redefining Remote Camera Movement

Bring a new level of movement to your remote camera live production workflow with a track system from Tecnopoint specifically designed to integrate with Panasonic PRO PTZ cameras.

Panasonic and Tecnopoint have partnered up to develop 'TUNING,' an advanced robotic system that provides broadcast-quality movement of PRO PTZ cameras with the addition of varying combinations of motorized dollies, telescopic columns and ceiling/floor tracks. The TUNING system allows you to add production value and creativity to building a cost-effective studio with broadcast-style on-air movements, fusing the fluid pan, tilt and zoom of the gear-driven Panasonic PRO PTZ cameras with the smooth, cinematic vertical/horizontal motion of the belt-driven TUNING system.

Realizing the Vision: On Set at TBN

“We would definitely recommend the Panasonic PTZ cameras and the Tecnopoint equipment and we’re already looking to use them for other projects at the network.”

Larry Haley, TBN, Director of Network Operations and Engineering

Features of the Tecnopoint System

Designed for PRO PTZ
The direct partnership between Tecnopoint and Panasonic ensures that even the smallest of details, like making sure the robotic movements of the TUNING system directly match the remarkable smoothness of the PRO PTZ cameras, aren't overlooked. Through our collaboration, we've been able to bring decades of engineering experience together from across various industries to develop a solution our customers have been asking for.

Robust Build
The TUNING system has a solid build to ensure high stability, structural balance, and lasting performance indoors or outdoors. Whether you're installing it permanently in a studio or taking it on the road, you can be sure that the system components are built to high manufacturing standards of wear and tear resistance, as well as the hazards of live production.

Safe & Sophisticated
The system has been engineered to be as low profile and non-intrusive as possible. An integrated cable management system, along with its anti-static drive belt allows for a clean, low-profile installation and safe movement. The internal motors and drive belt are engineered for quiet operation suitable for any noise-sensitive live production environment.

Modular Creativity
The system can be designed with your current and future live productions needs in mind. Install various tracks and add up to 2 dollies on a track. The system has been designed to adapt to flexible configuration options, accounting for various payloads, along with an equipped intelligent collision avoidance system for extra safety.

Shot Sequencing
The TUNING S software allows you to create up to 100 different customized shot positions using keyframes across an extended 4-axis plane, incorporating pan, tilt, horizontal and vertical positioning. Sequences of movement with all the axes, including pant/tilt/zoom/focus can be synchronized to automate your live production and give you amazing, smooth on-air results. Additionally, these sequences can be named for optimal customization.

Preset Thumbnails
All your saved shot positions and sequences can be recalled with precision via preset thumbnail icons, similar to those found in sophisticated broadcast technology systems. This helps eliminate the need for operators to memorize all the positions on a keyboard. To make operation even smoother, operators can select multiple scenes via the controller to execute sequential movements through multiple keyframes. Additionally, these presets can be named for optimal customization.

AR / VR Positioning
The Panasonic PRO PTZ camera and TUNING track dolly position can be sent in real-time to a 3rd party system for precise integration with an Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality environment. Panasonic's AW-UE150 PRO PTZ camera features integrated FreeD support for even more accurate positioning.

New Moves
Go beyond the basic moves of a simple dolly or a jib. With the direct integration of Panasonic PRO PTZ cameras and the TUNING robotic system, an entirely new world of camera movement is made possible. Now instead of being stuck making moves in a 2-axis environment, you are now free to create visual magic across 4-axes. Using various combinations of floor dollies, ceiling dollies, and robotic telescopic columns you can create impressive, smooth on-air shots ideal for live broadcast, streaming, or IMAG.

Single Operator
The TUNING system is designed for one-person operation from a touch screen display, where up to 10 cameras, each functioning on different Tecnopoint system devices can be controlled from a single unit. Thanks to a user-friendly graphics interface based on thumbnails, keyframes, and icons, operation is easy, secure and can be quickly understood, whether by a seasoned broadcast engineer or even a first-time volunteer.

Smooth Moves
The TUNING robotic system excels in environments where the level of expected production value is high and held to professional standards. The combination of camera & robotic system movements produces a whole new range of possible shots and cinematic movements. The smoothness a and stability of the rail system, the beauty of the sweeping motions, and the ability to ramp-down for super slow movements or dial-up for quick moves across a set are a marvel of engineering. Jittery, jumpy, abrupt and confusing camera shots are a thing of the past with a high-traction dolly mechanism and synchronized drive-motors eliminating any potential track slip.
