Rushworks will demonstrate a lineup of broadcast solutions at NAB 2018.
Each product focuses on the company’s mission to “keep it super simple,” combining powerful but simple to use feature sets and functionality that insure high quality production for TV, radio and Internet at affordable prices.
Comprising the show line-up of new, upgraded and enhanced products are: A-List Streamster, Rushworks’ new IP only automation system; a three-in-one multifunction video camera; an expanded PTX universal PanTilt head series; RushDolly, a tiny but versatile track dolly; VDEPO video deposition recording system and VDesk robotic camera video production system for television and radio.
“At this year’s NAB we have two clear messages for attendees,” says Rush Beesley, Rushworks president in a statement. “One is that Rushworks is the very definition of different, with unique technology that empowers a single operator to create sophisticated multi-camera video productions with no compromise in technical or production value. Second, we ‘keep it super simple,’ meaning it’s all so user-friendly that even non-techies can operate it. Our gear can literally go from broadcast to boardroom, classroom to congregation and always deliver quality beyond expectations with minimal operator involvement.”
Recognizing the dramatic increase in demand for OTT content management and distribution, Rushworks has created an “IP only” configuration of its industry-leading A-List Broadcast Automation System. The tiny form factor supports URL and NDI input and output, making this scheduling and playback engine the technology of choice for Internet TV stations.
PTX Universal PanTilt Heads
These unique pan and tilt heads, available in two sizes, provide a new dimension of production functionality and versatility. Using VISCA and DMX controllers with your favorite camera or camcorder, remotely control most camera operations with cameras from AJA, ARRI, Blackmagic, Canon, Datavideo, JVC, Marshall, Panasonic, RED, Sony and others.
RushDolly for PTZ and PTX production
RushDolly is a tiny but versatile track dolly designed to interface with PTZ and PTX cameras for creating scripted, multi-dimensional moves that integrate all motion axes into shots. RushDolly, equally at home on the floor or suspended, can creep or maintain a walking pace in the studio or on location, with simple software for preset creation and speed-defined transitions.
VDEPO Video Deposition Recording System
VDEPO meets the needs of those specializing in the production of on-location video depositions. Lightweight and small, the system is optimized for quick setup and noiseless touch-screen operation. It has four inputs, supports picture-in-picture, a graphic and video file browser with search and playback, and ISO recording of all inputs as well as the switched program.
