Ross Video’s Furio Goes Live in MLB Network’s New Studio K
MLB Network’s live off season morning show Hot Stove incorporated Ross Video’s Furio Robotic Camera System in its new studio located at MLB Network’s headquarters in Secaucus, New Jersey.
Formerly the facility’s mailroom and storage facility, Hot Stove’s Studio K was constructed in just over two months and exclusively uses robotic cameras that have the ability to dolly, elevate, pan, tilt, zoom and focus.
“MLB Network ran an extensive testing process to find the most capable and accurate robotic camera system on the market today,” said Brad Cheney, Engineering Manager, MLB Network. “During that process, we found that the Ross Furio System was above the rest. We needed a robotic camera that provided non-stop fluid movement that could react instantaneously to user commands to ensure we never missed a shot.”
From MLB Network’s control room, one system operator can program the cameras to hit designated marks – something that couldn’t be done with a manned camera system.
