The new Vector 430i delivers precise positional data for virtual and augmented reality applications in outside broadcast and studio environments.
The pan and tilt head incorporates a new Intelligence Module allowing semi automatic set-up and slide plate tracking. When combined with the VRI box [see below] this provides precise real-time digital electronic positioning of pan and tilt to allow graphics to be placed perfectly into the live environment. The positional information is also displayed on a graphical user interface for ease of set up and calibration.
These features, combined with the functionality of the innovative Vector 430, make the Vector 430i an ideal choice for EFP camera set-ups where virtual reality is required - now or in the future.
- Precise, real time digital electronic positioning of pan and tilt
- Small, lightweight and high capacity
VIRTUAL REALITY INTERFACE BOX
The VRI box enables the use of the Vector 430i, 750i, and 950i pan and tilt heads in virtual reality applications. The box processes the positional data from the ehad encoders and also offers a direct interface to lenses with encoder outputs (or bolt on lens encoders) to provide a single data stream to the graphics rendering system. Each VRI box is supplied with mounting brackets, GUI, and head interface cable.
