Camera operators often restrict the view of spectators. The camera seat system Orbiter 500 6.0 stadium was designed to minimise such impact on sightlines. Due to its extremely low working position, camera and operator can be perfectly integrated into the auditorium.
Camera and operator occupy an extremely low working position, eliminating the „dead angle“ for spectators. Up to 60 spectators can easily be accommodated behind a camera supported by the Orbiter 500 stadium, enjoying an unimpeded view – a modest innovation that quickly reaps rewards, as it is an economic swing seat which was designed to match the needs of those customers, looking for a cost efficient solution.
Using the Orbiter 500 stadium, the spatial position of the camera always remains constant. The fixed installation of the system guarantees that the cameras can repeatedly be positioned with the millimetre precision for each event and avoids continual repetition of unnecessary and time consuming measurements, and eliminates sources of error.
Its rigidity and axial stiffness provides the needed base if using virtual applications such as virtual advertising as the accuracy of the camera position is constant and time consuming calibration must be done only once.
The Orbiter 500 stadium enables broadcasters to use the latest multimedia techniques for presenting the action on the field or stage, and ideally equips your venue for the future.
The Orbiter allows independent movement of camera and seat, along the same axis. There are two remarkable and patented features of this system, contrary to other systems, the seat of the Orbiter is not directly connected to the camera mount, so it is not loaded by the operator’s weight.
Hence no shock motions are transmitted from the operator to the camera. The unlinked rotation along the same axis also avoids unwanted movement of the camera when moving the seat.
This model comes with a hermetically sealed high precision bearing facilitating smooth, steady and noiseless operation and accommodates all tripod heads. An integrated steady friction allows perfect panning coming close to the characteristics of fluid heads and a central cable feeding allows trouble-free panning over 360°. Comprehensive testing proved high durability even under extreme conditions in terms of temperature and mechanical impact. Maintenance is reduced to almost zero.
The Orbiter’s compact design, its effortless handling and its noiseless operation set new standards for mobile applications internationally.
