Rushworks Introduces Camera Tally System for Lumens and 1Beyond PTZ Cameras

​Rushworks, a Dallas area software development company specializing in affordable, high performance television production products, has launched a camera tally system that supports both Lumens and 1Beyond PTZ cameras.

Rushworks said the system supports up to eight small LED tally indicators, with the illuminated tally representing the currently selected Program input on the company’s VDESK and REMO integrated PTZ multi-camera TV production systems. An eight-port tally distribution box connects to VDESK and REMO via USB, and uses CAT5 cables for each of the camera tallies.

“Both the Lumens and 1Beyond PTZ cameras are excellent performers and very cost-effective,” said Rush Beesley, Rushworks’s president. “But neither include a tally light on the camera, which of course is necessary in news and similar production venues where the on-camera participants need to be aware of which camera is currently selected. We just added this simple functionality to make the cameras viable in this production sector.”

The eight channel kits are available for $299 directly from Rushworks. Markets currently benefitting from the use of VDESK and REMO solutions include city and state governments, court systems, school districts, houses of worship, radio stations, news production and entertainment venues.

Rushworks provides low-cost, high-performance television production, automation and video streaming solutions. These scalable and extensible solutions integrate networked video and graphics servers and encoders with automation software for broadcast, cable, PEG channels, houses of worship, meetings, events and digital signage.
