Vinten Radamec Proudly Presents the FCS16 Control System

Vinten Radamec, worldwide leader in high quality robotic camera support systems for the broadcasting industry, launches the Fusion FCS16, the first ultra-compact control system of its kind to provide full touch screen control for up to 16 cameras, compared to the standard 9, from one single panel unit. The user interface is a Windows based 10.4” touch-screen that allows a single controller to be configured to operate up to 16 cameras and/or full x-y pedestals from any number of locations, whether the operator is in the next room or on the other side of the world. Multiple controllers can be added to the network allowing further operational flexibility. While much more functional, the system is just as compact as its closest predecessor, the Shot Control Panel from Radamec plus it can store up to 64,000 shots. The Fusion FCS16 Control System can be teamed directly with companion Fusion products, including the new Fusion FHR100 Robotic Only Head and the Fusion FBH175 Bolt-on Height Drive. This combination offers a powerful robotic camera support system that delivers high quality programming at an affordable price. It also allows for future upgrades with the option of adding other robotics or adjusting their robotic systems depending on the facilities changing needs. The control system‘s network architecture incorporates Vinten Radamec‘s easy to use TCPi system with the sophistication of the Series 200 system, offering multi-user, multi-facility control of robotic pedestals, heads and elevation units. Interconnection is via industry standard TCP/IP, RS232 and RS422 protocols. Microsoft Windows™ and real time OS technology provide the Fusion FCS16 with enhanced operational features that ensure compatibility with many previous products from the former Radamec and Autocam lines, in addition to all of the new Fusion products from Vinten Radamec. This enables broadcasters to make the move into robotics on a gradual, cost-effective basis, without having to upgrade an entire system at once.
