Vaddio crossed into the global broadcast market at this year’s IBC. The company featured its ClearVIEW HD-18 single-CCD HD PTZ camera, equipped with a 1/3in, 1.3-megapixel CCD imaging sensor and a glass multielement dynamic zoom lens (18x optical). Other new PTZ cameras displayed on the stand included the Panasonic AW-HE100 and the new Sony BRC-Z330.
Vaddio also showed two new seamless switchers: the ProductionVIEW HD-SDI and ControlVIEW XHD. Vaddio created the ProductionVIEW HD-SDI multicamera control system with an integrated HD/SD-SDI seamless video switcher. ControlVIEW XHD is an automated robotic PTZ camera controller with HD, RGBHV and SD video switching, video transitions, and camera preset trigger functionality. ControlVIEW XHD is designed to control up to six PTZ cameras (or other video sources) and can assign up to 72 total preset positions.
