Broadcast engineers can now streamline their workflow with a new tool from Videosys Broadcast, a manufacturer and supplier of quality camera control systems, RF links and camera backs to outside broadcast providers.
The company’s new Epsilon 4K base station Camera Control Unit (CCU) is specifically designed to simplify Radio Camera installation by offering a system that is conceptually similar to regular CCU systems supplied by the main camera manufactures. The system offer familiarity with connection nomenclature ensuring multiple camera set-ups are matched quickly and effectively, with minimum input from operators and vision mixers. It is primarily configured to operate with the DTC range of transmitters, with optional dual head operation and it also offers up to four channel Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC) diversity, with unparalleled receive performance.
Epsilon is already making an impact on the market with companies such as German solutions provider Studio Hamburg MCI GmbH using it for productions where a fast set up time and secure transmission must be guaranteed.
With its simple touch screen interface and compatibility with existing Videosys camera control systems, Epsilon is ideally suited to both Studio and Outside Broadcast events. The system comprises up to two, dual channel fibre receive slot in modules, RF receiver and decoder options either HD – H264 or H265 up to 4K. In 4K mode Epsilon can operate either single or dual pedestal. Return camera control is Uni or Bi-Directional.

Signal transducers such as cameras, displays, microphones and loudspeakers handle information, ideally converting it from one form to another, but practically losing some. Information theory can be used to analyze such devices.
Connecting a camera in an SDI infrastructure is easy. Just connect the camera output to the monitor input, and all being well, a picture will appear. The story is very different in the IP domain.
