The New World Center upgrades its venue AV facilities to include Hitachi 4K cameras controlled by a Telemetrics robotic camera system

The New World Center, an internationally concert hall and campus that is home to the New World Symphony and America’s Orchestral Academy, recently upgraded its venue AV facilities to include Hitachi 4K cameras controlled by a Telemetrics robotic camera system. The advanced PTZ system allows the staff to create musical experiences for its audiences with live projected images surrounding the stage during performances (as well as on the outside wall of the building).

 

The New World Center initially installed a comprehensive Telemetrics robotic camera system in 2010, utilizing 10 PTZ cameras mounted strategically around the venue along with four Christie 30k projectors. Clyde Scott, director of video production, and his team returned to Telemetrics for a complete upgrade, including two RCCP-1A and two RCCP-1 remote control panels, which run 10 Hitachi SK-UHD4000 4K PTZ cameras via Telemetrics’ multi-featured Studio Software to manage the entire system.

 

In addition, 10 PT-LP-S5 motorized pan/tilt heads, Enterprise Database Control Software and two EP6-700 elevating pedestals were integrated into the system. All the equipment was supplied by Enlightened Digital and is connected via fiber-optic cabling.

 

“With any robotic system, the idea is to approach the same level of quality that you could get with a live camera operator,” says Scott. “One feature that we’re developing with Telemetrics is having multiple targeted shots within the same recall. Our new system includes advanced shot composition where multiple shots are plotted and carried out through robotics. It makes a huge difference, both for us and the audience.”

 

“Both the RCCP-1 and RCCP-1A panels are extremely easy to use, allowing us to train new operators rather quickly,” says Scott. “The Telemetrics system is exactly the right size and features the most capability for us. It’s extremely quiet, emitting almost no sound from the pan/tilt heads. That’s obviously critical to avoid any unwanted noise during the performances.”

 

“We’re seeing more and more creativity in how our camera robotics systems are being deployed and The New World Center is a striking example that has audiences captivated,” says Anthony Cuomo, President Telemetrics, Inc. “The reliability and cost-effective of our systems add significant value for audiences of venues like this beautiful Frank Gehry-designed building that is the talk of the town, and really the entire classical music industry. We’re proud to be supporting such an important cultural organization.”


“Both the RCCP-1 and RCCP-1A panels are extremely easy to use, allowing us to train new operators rather quickly,” Clyde Scott, director of video production at the New World Center.
