Virtual reality and robotics solutions provider Hybrid TV offers a complete JIB system called Chrome. It com- bines a rigid arm with a Silver (pan/ tilt/zoom) head, offering six degrees of freedom (four axes of revolution) for sophisticated and smooth moves. Chrome can be used with the Krypton real-time virtual studio environment.
Hybrid also is showing how the ad- dition of a virtual studio and JIB helps in every aspect of storytelling. Benefits include cost savings, more sophisticat- ed presentation, and clear and beauti- ful sets designed by Hybrid partner FX Design Group.
One feature of Hybrid’s robotic prod- uct line is known as Zero Delay, which means that video and audio delays are eliminated from a production. All robots are driven by Hybrid’s Cobalt controller, but can also be driven by the Mercury software graphic and user-friendly con- trol interface, video switcher, Hybrid’s own software vision mixer, any of the popular automation systems, or simply triggered via GPI.
