Booth SL12713 RUSHWORKS is launching Locked On, a new software-based object tracking solution that eliminates the need for camera operators. It controls one or more PTZ or PTX cameras, allowing the devices to follow the talent with no operators required.
RUSHWORKS is also showing its PTX Universal Pan Tilt head, which supports full DMX control. When used as the base for a camera or camcorder, PTX provides control of pan, tilt and camera/lens by VISCA devices, including the Sony RM-BR300.
PTX Model 2 features universal support protocol and works with larger cameras like the Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini, RED, ARRI, larger field production cameras and DSLRstyle camera bodies. PTX Model 1 works with smaller cameras, like the Blackmagic Design Micro Studio Camera 4K, AJA RovoCam and Canon XA35.
The company is also showcasing Newsdolly, a robotic platform for PTZ cameras. It uses a joystick to position and save multiple preset locations with speeds for transitions.
