Torrance, CA (30 September 2010) – Shotoku Broadcast Systems, a leading international manufacturer of advanced camera support products, recently supplied a virtual set-enabled jib crane system to Caracol Televisión in Bogotá, Colombia. Shotoku Inc.’s president, Naoki Ebimoto, made the announcement from the Company’s US headquarters in Torrance, CA.

Caracol Television, on-air since 1954, operates one of Colombia’s two national networks, producing a broad range of news, sports, public affairs, scripted, and unscripted “reality” style content. The Shotoku equipment was acquired in conjunction with a virtual studio technology package from Vizrt. The newly installed gear is being integrated into the production workflow while facility staff explores its creative potential. “I wanted to have the Shotoku brand in our facility for some time,” said director of engineering A. Yesid Guerra. “The result was as expected, it is very robust and produces fluid, precise movements … and it’s being well accepted by our operators.”

The TK-59VR jib crane is equipped with Shotoku’s TV-03A pan / tilt head. Both are configured for virtual set operation with high precision encoders and a Serial Position Interface that delivers data compatible with all leading VR systems to ensure smooth, accurate synchronization of virtual set elements.

“We are very pleased that Caracol TV selected Shotoku for their virtual studio upgrade,” said Ebimoto. “Latin America is an important growth market for Shotoku Broadcast Systems; we offer reasonably priced, high performance hardware solutions that empower our clients to unlock the creative potential of their digital production technology investments.”
