Vaddio, a provider of conferencing and broadcast audio visual solutions, has announced the Vaddio Precision Camera Controller Premier (PCC Premier), the newest addition to the camera controller consoles with the added advantage of anywhere, anytime control. The PCC Premier enables simultaneous control of up to 16 Vaddio RoboSHOT PTZ cameras over an IP network connection. An IP address book can virtually control up to 80 PTZ cameras with the simple press of a button. In addition to Vaddio’s PTZ camera, the PCC Premier can control both Sony and Panasonic cameras via the eight RS-232 connection ports providing maximum installation flexibility for any production.
Vaddio has also included support for a built-in H.264 decoder targeting remote studio and campus operating center applications. Paired with Vaddio RoboSHOT HD-SDI, RoboSHOT 12 USB, or ClearSHOT 10 USB, camera operators will have ability to remotely view and control live production events over the network.
Camera operators can paint and frame camera shots on-the-fly using the intuitive control surface on the PCC Premier, supporting the most demanding production environments. The PCC Premier includes a three-axis Hall-effect joystick, PTZ speed control knobs, large focus knob, illuminated push buttons for camera selection, and a full color touchscreen display with easy-to-find image and preset controls. Setup and management of the PCC Premier is available through an embedded web server accessed by a standard PC browser.
“The ability to remotely control groups of cameras is an asset for live production – we can literally be anywhere without losing any camera quality or control,” stated Ed Ellett, president and CEO of Vaddio. “The PCC Premier is Vaddio’s newest enterprise class solution to control and stream remote cameras over an IP Network.”
