Since its introduction in 2008, Furio has revolutionized not only studio robotics, but also the way broadcast news is produced. With the ability to produce silky smooth, sweeping on-air dolly shots, which can then be precisely repeated over and over again at the push of a button, Furio allows broadcasters to create more dynamic looks – while also delivering higher quality and repeatability, and lowering operating costs. Unlike jibs or other specialty camera systems, Furio has the capacity to support full-sized cameras and teleprompters, giving it the flexibility to deliver spectacular beauty shots, while also serving as the primary production camera.
As a modular system, Furio is available in a wide variety of configurations, with multiple platforms, lifts and heads to choose from. Select the towering 2.22m (7ft 3”) height and unbeatable range of the SE 3-stage lift, the more economical S2 2-stage lift, or a fixed column – or mount the head directly on the SE dolly. System can then be paired with either a VR100 or VR600 pan and tilt head, depending on payload requirements.
Ross Video has the most complete studio robotics offering available, whether you are looking for the unparalleled smoothness of a track-based system, the unbeatable flexibility of a free-roaming pedestal, or the simple efficiency of a standalone pan & tilt head.
All Ross robotic systems are designed, developed, and manufactured in-house, using state-of-the-art technologies that provide industry-leading accuracy, precision, and payload capacity.
Whether you have Furio+ dollies, free-roaming CamBot pedestals, PT heads, or PTL pedestals, all of your Ross robotic systems can be controlled by a common control system using a centralized Ethernet-based architecture.
All Ross Studio Robotic systems can be directly controlled from a wide range of control platforms using an open API that allows complete control of every feature of the robots. Our graphical user interfaces (GUI) provide simple, easy-to-use solutions for creating, managing, and recalling shots on all your Ross robotic cameras, helping deliver consistent, high-quality productions without sacrificing creativity.
Ross Video offers a range of robotic control options that can be scaled and combined to create the perfect control solution for any market application. From our free DashBoard plugins for controlling core functions on all Ross robots, PTZs and cameras, to our enterprise-level SmartShell control platform, we can create a workflow solution that is perfect for your environment. This includes a hands-free automated workflow using our AI-based framing software, Vision[Ai]ry Ft, in combination with Ross OverDrive APC.
