Vinten Radamec now shipping the game-changing Absolute Positioning System

Vinten Radamec announced the availability of its ground-breaking Absolute Positioning System (APS) navigation system.

The APS, which was awarded the coveted “Best of IBC2012” award when its beta model debuted at IBC, was praised for being a game changing, smart and valuable product. It also received the TV Technology Star Award at NAB 2013.

The revolutionary APS integrates seamlessly with Vinten Radamec’s Fusion robotic pedestals and delivers unrivalled positional accuracy and operational flexibility never before possible with robotic camera support pedestals.

A Fusion pedestal equipped with APS no longer relies on a floor target or tile for navigation and positioning, even when switching from manual to robotic mode. Instead, it detects unobtrusive, passive retro-reflective targets placed in the studio environment using a scanning laser-based measurement system. This frees up the whole studio floor for the pedestal while removing the need to go through time-consuming retargeting routines.

“We’re delighted the system is now available to all of our key markets,” said Karen Walker, robotics commercial manager for Vinten Radamec. “We have already received orders from broadcasters around the world, and anticipate a high demand, as APS is one of the most advanced products on the market.”

The APS removes all of the operational challenges associated with targeting pedestals using a floor target. It is available as both a factory-fit option on the Fusion FP-188 pedestal, or as an upgrade for existing FP-188 or FP-145 pedestals.

APS system is now available from Vinten Radamec and its partners.
