The HotShot pan and tilt head has established itself as the most flexible and reliable remote head in the broadcast industry, when full remote control of a broadcast camera and lens is required.

The HotShot has a choice of control systems, via either the Pan Bar system or the standard Joystick Control. This provides reversing switches on the pan, tilt, zoom and focus allowing for ‘user-friendly’ control. Fully adjustable controls allow 360° control of pan and tilt, in speeds ranging from 2.7 seconds to 17 minutes.

Slip Rings are fitted to the pan section of the HotShot, which allows cable free movement of the head. The tilt section is fitted with fully adjustable limit switches that prevent the camera cables from snagging.

It is a completely self-contained unit - all electronics are built in with no external control packs or switcher boxes, such as a Multiplexer required.

The Camera Corps HotShot is available with a choice of HD cameras and lenses.

Full control of the camera is possible via our RCP Panel, allowing complete control of up to 6 cameras. Where a remote head is also required, the RCP Panel is used in conjunction with Camera Corps’ smooth and accurate Joystick Control.

Up to 8 remote heads of different types can be operated from one Joystick Control. Camera functions and PTZF data are sent via a standard 3-pin XLR cable.

Up to 96 cameras and remote heads (of various types) can be controlled via one Joystick with the addition of our Multi Camera Control System.

Camera Corps control system allows remote control of all Camera Corps heads and cameras, and can provide control for a number of other brand heads and cameras – contact us for more details.
