Title (EN) CAMERA POSITIONING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE POSITIONNEMENT DE CAMERA
Abstract:
(EN) A system for positioning a camera relative to a work area including a clamp (10) situated outside of the work area, and extension and support element (16) which operates to maintain a given position thereof. The system further includes a camera (14) mechanically held within a socket (18) at an end of the position retention element. A high resolution solid state and miniature video TV camera serves as the camera. The system offers a simple, convenient method of close-up monitoring or video taping in which the video camera can be positioned directly over the area of surgical operation or industrial inspection. The camera can be easily moved and rotated to any position offering extreme macro close-ups, which close-up can be video taped for later use in educational and quality control processes.
(FR) Système de positionnement d'une caméra par rapport à une zone de travail, comprenant un dispositif de serrage (10) situé en dehors de la zone de travail, ainsi qu'un élément (16) d'extension et de support ayant pour rôle de se maintenir dans une position donnée. Le système comprend également une caméra (14) maintenue mécaniquement dans une douille (18), au niveau d'une extrémité de l'élément de rétention de position. On utilise une caméra de TV vidéo à haute résolution, du type miniature à semi-conducteurs. Le système présente un procédé simple et pratique de contrôle de gros plans ou d'enregistrements vidéo, dans lequel on peut positionner la caméra vidéo directement sur la zone d'opération chirurgicale ou de contrôle industriel. On peut déplacer et mettre en rotation facilement la caméra dans n'importe quelle position offrant des gros plans en macro extrêmes, lesquels peuvent être enregistrés en vidéo afin d'être utilisés ultérieurement à des fins éducatives et de contrôle et de qualité.
