Meet NINA, Doosan’s Robotic Camera System

Doosan NINA 400x275

January 5, 2022

Doosan Robotics has announced its entry into the entertainment industry marketplace with the unveiling of the NINA Camera Robot System. NINA, or “New Inspiration, New Angle”, is designed for prosumer content creators and mid-level enterprises to provide motion control through user-friendly software. The company said this will empower anyone to adopt professional cinematography skills and create production quality content at the highest levels.

The NINA system automatically senses an object and calculates distance, allowing smooth and consistent robotic-assisted filming. Users can pre-test angles by running simulations before actual filming, to conserve time and save on production costs. In addition, Doosan said it plans to create an open platform for users to exchange presets of camera movements to diversify filming results, and allow beginners to incorporate difficult-to-film angles at the click of a button.

The NINA hardware includes a 360-degree rotation feature to create uniqueness in cinematic works, and an ergonomically compact design. Doosan said this ensures performance on par with industry robots with a 25 kg payload. Safety and emergency stop functions provide collision sensitivity powered by six-torque sensors, validated with the highest safety scores, the company added. Additional features include a joypad and hand teaching, motion import and export, pre-simulation, 720-degree rotation, and hanging/moving capacity at the lightest weight.

“We highly anticipate the upcoming March release for our NINA camera robot system, and look forward to showcasing for CES attendees this year,” said William (Junghoon) Ryu, CEO at Doosan Robotics. “NINA brings in a whole new era for Doosan as we expand our offerings into the entertainment and content genre. Our goal has been to deliver something accessible, yet innovative for professional content creators across entertainment, advertising, social media, and other relevant industries, and we’re confident NINA will deliver in big ways across the board.”

At CES, the company also demonstrated its H-SERIES of packaging and palletizing robots for the logistics and supply chain sector, as well as a video demonstration of its unmanned modular robot cafe, DR.PRESSO.
