HD/SD Pan and Tilt Camera System Smallest Available on Market Today

LAS VEGAS, NV – Bexel, a unit of the Vitec Group’s Services Division and a leading worldwide provider of broadcast services and solutions, has been named the exclusive United States distributor and rental agent for Camera Corps’ Q-Ball HD/SD Minicam system.

The Q-Ball is Camera Corps’ latest robotic HD Pan and Tilt camera system combining both appearance and performance in the smallest system currently available.

“We are excited to be named the exclusive U.S. distributor and rental agent for the Q-ball camera system,” says Jerry Gepner, chief executive officer, Bexel. “Bexel is known for the best in new technology and our association with Camera Corps continues that tradition”.

Based on the well-proven Sony CMOS HD imager, Camera Corps has added exclusive additional features to the Q-Ball to make it the most comprehensive HD robotic Minicam system available today.

The Q-Ball incorporates a built-in 10x zoom optical lens and smooth accelerating Pan and Tilt motors in a sturdy, fully-weatherproof aluminum sphere with a diameter of 115 mm/4.5in. The addition of up to four embedded audio channels allows stereo effects mics to be incorporated into any set up. Master black level and full paint controls allow much better color matching of the popular Sony camera with other cameras, important in all situations where camera types are mixed.

Optional extra features include infrared capability and a wide angle lens adapter.

The Q-Ball is fully compatible with all Camera Corps existing control systems including Camera Corps choice of Joystick Controls and its CCU panel.
