VidOvation Partners With CyanView To Simplify Remote Camera Control For Live Multicamera Productions

Through this partnership, VidOvation will supply turnkey solutions for flexible, remote IP-based camera control and shading over unmanaged networks, such as the public internet and cellular networks, during live multicamera productions, particularly for live sports broadcasts.

The integration of VidOvation’s bonded cellular and wireless system with CyanView’s RCP multicamera control panel enables reliable, low-latency IP-based transmission of control signals from multiple camera types and brands to the control room for live production, simplifying remote operations, enabling cost reductions, and enhancing users’ creative options.

“CyanView solves the challenge of efficient, unified remote camera control and shading during live production, and we’re pleased to represent the company’s products in the U.S. market,” said Jim Jachetta, executive vice president and chief technology officer, VidOvation. “Modern productions rely on a variety of specialty cameras, including mini POV, PTZ, robotic, ENG, large-sensor cinema, and more. Camera control and shading for these cameras is challenging over unmanaged IP networks such as the public internet and cellular, but CyanView technology eliminates any challenges associated with latency and intermittent connectivity, making camera control possible over thousands of miles for REMI and at-home production.”

CyanView’s RCP ensures seamless integration of specialty cameras into a production, not only making it easier to capture any event from any angle, but also reducing setup time, cabling, and clutter. With camera control (e.g., tally, pan-tilt head and gimbal control, motorized lenses, etc.), video correction, and video transport handled by a single system, users can remotely control all stages of the ecosystem from a unified interface. Integration with bonded cellular and wireless technology enables IP-based signal transport, putting these robust control capabilities at the fingertips of engineers working remotely in production or master control.
