I'd be willing to bet that the real volume users of this kind of tech, Reuters, Getty and AP, are happy with the systems they have already developed, I remember seeing x,y,z, plane computer controlled heads for top end cameras and lenses with zoom control years ago from these companies for the Olympics.
I'd see the real market for these as rental houses to go out to people with decent budgets that don't do this kind of thing very often.
People like me, low budget but pushing to bring new perspectives, will keep using the gear we have, WiFi enabled gimbals, WFT's and CamRangers.
Big players like Reuters and Getty aren't in the business of developing and maintaining this type of system. They were forced into it because there's no off the shelf product. and some of them might be willing to switch to Canon's.
