Shotoku Enables Virtual Reality for Mexico’s Grupo Multimedios

Torrance, CA – Shotoku Broadcast Systems, a leading international manufacturer of advanced camera support products, recently delivered virtual set-enabled jib crane systems at the Grupo Multimedios owned studios located in Monterrey and México City. Shotoku Inc.’s president, Naoki Ebimoto, made the announcement from the Company’s US headquarters in Torrance, CA.

Two Shotoku model TK-59VR Jib Cranes equipped with TU-03AVR Pan / Tilt Heads were purchased in conjunction with virtual studio technology from Vizrt to support news coverage of México’s 2012 presidential election. One system was installed at Grupo Multimedios’ main studio in Monterrey, México; the other at Milenio, their full time news channel in México’s capital city. Both Shotoku packages are configured with high precision encoders and a Serial Position Interface that delivers data compatible with all leading VR systems to ensure the smooth and accurate synchronization of virtual set elements.

“The integration with Vizrt at both facilities went very smoothly,” said Ebimoto. “Our systems are well suited to Multimedios’ production environment, offering high performance, scalability for future growth, and simplicity of operation – virtual reality expands the boundaries of creativity and captures audience attention.”
