The Q3 is a major new addition to the Camera Corps range of robotic cameras.

Following on from the highly popular Q-Ball, the new Q3 head has many additional features which make it quite simply the most powerful miniature robotic system on the market today.

Q3 has all the best features of the earlier Q-Ball systems but now has a larger zoom, a more sensitive camera, even smoother movement, and genlock built into the standard system.

The Q3 incorporates a high quality built in 20x optical zoom lens and 360o continuous pan movement with a choice of multiple HD formats.

The Fibre Option consists of a “base end” box taking in analogue genlock and audio data signals.  HD-SDI is also output from here.  A fibre card is fitted into the existing interface box at the head end.

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 the Camera Corps 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
