Rushworks Releases the PTX Model 3 PRO Pan/Tilt Head: Power and Precision with IP Control

by | Gear, Production, Streaming, Video

Rushworks, provider of cool technology for production, playback and streaming since 2001, has announced the release of the PTX Model 3 PRO, the most recent, agile, and powerful unit in its line of robotic pan/tilt heads. Rush Beesley, Rushworks founder and president, provided details about the kit.

“Although the challenges were significant in trying to build a sophisticated new product during this extended supply shortage, we’re finally ready to ship,” he said “The end result is everything we hoped it would be and more – a real cool head.”

The PTX Model 3 PRO provides whisper-quiet operation with enough payload capacity to support most cameras and lenses. It features natural start/stop motion ramps for both presets and joystick manipulation and is controlled using VISCA over IP for compatibility with dozens of current hardware and software controllers. At 43 lbs. / 19.5kg, the unit has the mass required to easily manage large payloads, with the torque generated by two large stepper motors to do the heavy lifting. The PTX Model 3 PRO easily accommodates Blackmagic’s entire camera line: the Studio Camera, the Pocket Cinema Camera, and the URSA family of production and cinema cameras, as well as other large form factor cameras like the Canon C models, Lumix Box Cinema, Red, Arri and Sony FX line.

“The PTX Model 3 PRO release will be followed closely by our nextgen BABYZOOMER, which also uses VISCA over IP commands to control zoom, iris or focus on a wide variety of manual zoom lenses. This combination will support naming, saving and recalling multiple presets for pan, tilt, and zoom,” Beesley said.
