The Precision Camera Controller boasts a broadcast-quality joystick designed for smooth and accurate pan, tilt and zoom control, as well as CCU image control functionality for controlling up to seven PTZ cameras. By integrating CCU control into the system users can control red and blue gain, detail, and iris with adjustable gain with any Vaddio PTZ camera. One-push white balance (OPWB), auto white balance (AWB) and auto iris are also available to those who desire a more automated image control system. The CCU control surface gives system users real-time knobs and buttons to control each of these functions.
Designed to control up to seven PTZ cameras, the Precision Camera Controller can be used as a stand-alone device or in conjunction with a variety of video switchers or mixers on the market today. In addition, two Precision Camera Controllers can be linked together to allow the user to control all cameras from either controller.
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick is a unique integration joystick with six discrete, auto-configuring RS-232 camera control ports for direct control of PTZ cameras, eliminating the need for daisy chain control cabling.
Each camera can have up to 12 internally stored camera presets effectively removing the internal preset limitations of the camera. The six cameras can also be adjusted individually for the operating environment with adjustments for auto/manual focus, auto/manual brightness, backlight compensation and one push automatic white balance.
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick has two rows of six external control switches that can be used to trigger outputs and control external video switchers with contact closures or tally lights for studio applications. There is also provision for external control of select HD switchers/mixers with built-in RS-232 codes in the system menu. Like all ProductionVIEW series controllers, a 4” LCD preview monitor is built-in.
The ProductionVIEW FX standard definition camera control system incorporates 6 x 2 matrix video switching, camera preset control and joystick control functionality into one easy-to-use console.
ProductionVIEW FX delivers user selectable, frame synchronized transitions that are completely seamless, professional and without compromise in quality. Among the included transitions are straight cuts, fades (in and out), cross fades (one image fading into another) and wipes (up, down, side to side and corner). The user can select the transition and the transition time, up to four seconds, to automatically activate as the inputs are switched on the main and preview buses.
The ProductionVIEW HD multi-camera control system is designed to handle the most demanding live broadcast or staging events, yet it’s simple enough to allow a novice to shoot like a pro. ProductionVIEW HD integrates PTZ camera control and multi-format HD/SD live switching with real-time graphics and effects into one easy-to-use control console.
The completely redesigned surface gives system users real-time knobs and buttons to control functions. Because ProductionVIEW HD is a live broadcast console, not a computer, the entire system produces only one frame of delay — a critical requirement where image magnification is used.
Due to the increased demand of Serial Digital Interface (SDI) in live broadcast, Vaddio created the ProductionVIEW HD-SDI multi-camera control system with an integrated 6 x 2 HD/SD-SDI seamless video switcher. Because the majority of robotic PTZ cameras currently available on the market offer HD-SDI or SD-SDI cards, the ProductionVIEW HD-SDI is designed to connect easily via a single coax cable for video. ProductionVIEW HD-SDI includes the 3 Gigahertz HD-SDI standard (SMPTE 424M) for 1080p video, as well as SMPTE 292M (HD-SDI at 720p or 1080i) and SMPTE 259M (SD-SDI).
The control surfaces includes a broadcast-style 3-axis Hall Effect Joystick with twist handle zoom control, as well as separate Pan, Tilt and Speed control knobs. There are six discrete auto-sensing RS-232 camera control ports and 12 camera pre-sets per camera for storing frequent shots. Because ProductionVIEW HD-SDI is a live broadcast production console, not a computer, the entire system produces only one frame of delay - a critical requirement for live production where image magnification is used.
