R1 Robot

Electric Friends™ R1 and its patented controller software Axis Ctrl™ and its innovative design stems from a broadcaster driven development process, performed by a cross-functional team of broadcast, electrical, mechanical, robot and software engineers joined by broadcasts producers and artists 

Electric Friends™ systems are developed for a variety of applications including studio, outside broadcast and film production. This solution allows a giant leap forward in terms of productivity, flexibility and cost efficiency. The robot replaces a staffed jib or small crane and is ideal for repeated trajectory like in news and sports studios. 

Electric Friends™ provides different hardware and software configurations suitable to any studio, virtual or outside broadcast. 

Electric Friends™ R1 and its software Axis Ctrl™ support several VR systems. The trajectory and position repeatability is 0,1 mm and requires no further calibration after initial setup. 

Electric Friends™ solution is an advanced industrial collaborative robot platform custom built for the broadcast industry. The robot is programmed with safety in mind, and has been certified to work in an environment with people in close proximity.
