Videosys Broadcast Shows Epsilon Camera Control Upgrades At IBC 2022

Already popular with broadcast operators and vision mixers because it is so easy to use, the Epsilon wireless camera system now features a useful 12G output.

Compatible with major manufacturers such as SonyPanasonicARRIHitachi and Ikegami, Epsilon is an integrated solution that is designed to simplify the installation and operation of regular radio camera systems in all areas of outside broadcast and studio-based production. It is conceptually similar to regular CCU systems supplied by the main camera manufactures, meaning operators tasked with matching multiple camera set ups can do so quickly and effectively because they are already familiar with the connection nomenclature.

Videosys Broadcast will be showcasing the latest Epsilon system now with 12G output, giving operators the option of simplified 12G single cable connectivity. This useful addition can significantly improve workflow, especially when projects are being shot in 4K.

Epsilon comprises up to two, dual channel fibre receive slot in modules, RF receiver and decoder options either HD – H264 or H265 up to 4K. Epsilon can operate either single or dual pedestal, improving the data rate while retaining robust RF performance. This is especially important for high quality Light Entertainment productions where there is a requirement for very high picture quality with no increase in latency.

In addition to the 12G SDI upgrade, Videosys Broadcast has also added TSL TallyMan capabilities. This means that operators can utilise the full power of TallyMan’s control system with both tally and UMD data available.
