Ross Video Acquires Cambotics

Ross Video has acquired Cambotics, a robotic camera systems company based in Escondido, California. Cambotics joins the recently established Ross Robotics division to compliment the Furio Robo and Furio RC systems. Founded in 2005, Cambotics designs and manufactures automated heads and pedestals. The Cambotics products will become the CamBot Series within Ross Robotics.

“Cambotics are true pioneers in studio camera robotics and their current products represent decades of industry knowledge,” says David Ross, CEO Ross Video. “This acquisition, coupled with the acquisition of FX-Motion earlier this year, now establishes Ross as a world leader in studio camera robotics systems.”

The Robotics family already works with Ross’ existing products including OverDrive Automated Production Control System, Vision Production Switchers and XPression Graphics. Having a full array of production offerings uniquely positions Ross to provide customers a more complete solution and the opportunity to advance the state of the art in live production technology.

Cambotics founders Bob Scotto & Miles Spellman will be staying with Ross in the robotics division as the new Chief Hardware Architect and Chief Software Architect respectively.
