Motion Control – Application – Mini Pan/Tilt for HD Cameras

Motion Control – Custom Gearmotors
motion control - pan tilt stage

With digital television fast approaching, camera manufacturers are flooding the market with new, lightweight units, but few companies are providing the professional equipment that goes with the upcoming change.

“We searched across all known small motor manufacturers, but only Maxon Precision Motor was able to provide a motor that met our requirements,”
motion control - maxon

Fall River, MA — Motion Control  Application – Up until 2006, the only broadcast-use professional motorized Pan/Tilts in the market were very heavy. This is because the equipment was built to hold analog video cameras, which could weigh as much as 50 kg and up. With February 2009 approaching, the final day of transition for digital TV, the leading HD camera manufacturers, Sony and Panasonic, have flooded the US market with new lightweight HD digital cameras, such as HDR-FX1 and AGHVX200, respectively. These new, HD cameras weigh less than 4.5 kg, and that weight continues to drop as the use of flash memory storage devices continue to rise.
