Polecam to Debut Universal Camera Controller at IBC
Polecam Universal RCP MkIII Camera Controller

Polecam, a U.K.-based developer of camera support gear, will introduce the Polecam Universal RCP MkIII remote control panel at IBC 2009.

The panel allows comprehensive and intuitive control of up to five different camera types from a single unit. The control format used is a highly robust audio sine-wave data signal which can run at 1,200, 2,400 or 4,800 baud, allowing the RCP to be linked via balanced audio cable to the RX Box receiver, which can be located up to and beyond 1,500m away, depending on baud rate and cable quality. The RX box provides both 12 V DC and control data to the camera. It incorporates a camera channel select switch, all other functions including baud rate selection and camera type being automatic. Other features provided by the RX box include dual tally drive outputs and remote activation of devices such as lens blowers and windscreen wipers.

The Universal RCP MkIII is compatible with Polecam-approved ultra-compact HD an SD cameras from Camera Corps, Hitachi, Iconix, Panasonic, Sony and Toshiba. Pan, tilt, and iris motor drive outputs are also provided. Parameters such as color balance, master pedestal, gain and detail can be remotely adjusted provided these features are supported within the camera itself. A single pan, tilt abd uris drive connector (six-pin LEMO), is provided for integration with a Polecam system and can also be configured to complement various OEM pan/tilt heads and lenses.

Polecam will be in Stand10.C49.
