Telemetrics to Introduce CLIU-S5 Camera/Lens Interface at 2017 NAB Show

At the 2017 NAB Show, Telemetrics will introduce the CLIU-S5, a camera/lens interface that works in tandem with the Telemetrics RCCP-1 Control Panel.

Designed for remotely operating both ENG and studio “box” cameras, Telemetrics said the CLIU-S5 interface allows operators to make adjustments to all shading controls, plus iris and zoom, for cameras mounted in fixed positions or on a boom or crane.

When receiving input from the RCCP-1 controller, the CLIU-S5 interface relays the camera and lens control signals much like a robotic head – but without the head. It also is compatible with all types of virtual set configurations.

Earlier versions of the product have been used in production studios and permanent remotely controlled camera installations to relay RS-232/422 and IP control data to and from the camera and RCCP-1 control panel. The new version adds the ability to mix and match robotic and non-robotic cameras (of the same or different brands) and operate them all simultaneously with a single RCCP-1 controller.

Auxiliary robotic devices such as all Telemetrics camera trolley and Televator systems can also be controlled through the new interface. Power to the camera can also be supplied through the camera/lens interface, and the unit can be mounted in a portable rack or permanent chassis with included power supplies.
