IBC: MRMC To Showcase Gold Standard Motion Control Robotics And Broadcast Solutions

Mark Roberts Motion Control (MRMC), a Nikon company, will showcase its range of motion control robotics and control software, as well as industry leading broadcast solutions at IBC 2022 (RAI, Amsterdam, Sept. 9-12).

MRMC’s motion control robotics and Flair software solution will be on display on stand D11 in Hall 12. Visitors to MRMC’s motion control stand will be able to see the high-speed Bolt Jr+ Cinebot in action, showcasing choreographed automated camera movement created with MRMC’s Flair software. The booth will also have an LED Volume featuring a visual display of content captured by the Bolt Cinebot range.

Visitors will also be able to see a visual showcase of the Flair software, with its intuitive UI and key features in operation. Flair is the culmination of more than 50 years of industry experience and has recently been updated with a new Focus Assist tool, which automatically measures the distance to the operator’s target, simplifying and speeding up moves.

Meanwhile, at stand C30 in Hall 11, MRMC will be showcasing its offerings for broadcasters, including its full range of studio heads and arms and remote production solutions such as the automated subject tracking software Polymotion Chat, which helps streamline production costs.

Broadcasters and media creators will learn how to take content capture to new levels with tech that features exceptional speed and precise repeatable moves with smooth motion.

Visitors can also find out how to enhance their PTZ production with the new ARC-360 PTZ camera and the QRS-1 quiet rail system, a cost-effective, modular track designed for studio, event, and mixed production environments.


MRMC is also demonstrating its StudioBot XL robotic arm, which provides high-end automated motion for news and studio settings. “The TRH-1 track system produces smooth movement on a rail-mounted tilt column, while the PTA-2 and AFC-180 illustrate the versatility of MRMC’s robotic head range, offering speed and high payload options,” the company says

All MRMC’s robotics are camera agnostic and can fit seamlessly into existing workflows as well as new technologies including virtual production sets.

Solutions for sports will also be on display, highlighting MRMC’s ability to remotely control the camera through a variety of interfaces including Pan Bars, a Joystick Control Panel or software, or how to use automation to help capture hard-to-reach action for track and field-based sports.
