Telemetrics’ Robotic Control Selected for City Hall Upgrade in Aurora, Colorado

Telemetrics announced its RCCP-1 (Robotic Camera Control Panel) and Legislative Software were selected for the City Hall high definition video upgrade in Aurora, Colorado.

Telemetrics said the upgrade will improve the production capabilities at the main Council Chambers and Aurora meeting room, Control Rooms A and B and the Aurora TV television station.
Telemetrics said its RCCP-1 Robotic Camera Control Panel and Legislative Software helps streamline operations, improve functionality and boost production quality.

“We wanted a system that integrated tightly with our Ross Carbonite and Xpression CG. While there are other systems that claim to do this, we knew that Telemetrics had a solid, reliable and well-tested system,” said Randy Simpson, supervisor of television and cable services for the City of Aurora.

“We’ve been using Telemetrics for several decades, and it’s been among the most reliable equipment that we’ve ever owned,” he said. “Literally, we’ve never had a single issue with any piece of Telemetrics gear, and some of it has been running 24 hours a day for over a decade.”

The Telemetrics equipment controls the five Grass Valley LDX Compact 80 HD cameras in the main council chambers. Five cameras cover the 11 council seats and the audience, while the sixth is a dedicated document camera.

An additional RCCP-1 runs the four Grass Valley HD cameras installed in the Aurora meeting room, where pre-council meeting study sessions take place.

The Telemetrics’ RCCP-1 provides a single, integrated control surface that enables unified command over camera robotics and camera shading. The RCCP-1 also allows access to all controls of broadcast cameras, which eliminates the need for dedicated camera control units or paint boxes.

Telemetrics’ LGS Legislative Automation Software is designed specifically for use with the RCCP-1, and allows a single operator to produce live, high quality legislative and corporate meeting video content while decreasing operating expenses.
