Telemetrics Debuts Entry-Level Modular Robotics Camera Control Panel

Telemetrics has introduced the RCCP-M, a control interface with auto-sensing technology for non-technical staff working on a wide variety of cost-conscious productions.

To be demonstrated at the 2017 NAB Show, Telemetrics said the control panel features a color 10.4-inch touch screen interface for identifiable camera functions; pan, tilt and zoom speed control knobs and a large focus knob for camera control.

It offers upgrade options when more advanced controls are needed. Due to its modular design, the RCCP-M can be configured in a myriad of ways, with both software options and “side cars” that can provide different hardware-based interfaces.

It is compatible with the more full featured RCCP-1 remote camera control panel.

Also at NAB, Telemetrics said it will demonstrate a new, more fully featured Advanced control panel – the RCCP-1A — which adds unified controls.

Designed for larger broadcast studios, the RCCP-1A leverages the reliability and accuracy of the RCCP-1, but includes a higher end processor that supports more complex keyframe based-motion paths.

There are also additional panel controls for new features now being developed for the RCCPO-1-STS Studio Software. This includes the internal ability to snapshot thumbnails for shots and live video preview.

As with the RCCP-1, the new model still features all of the camera shading tools that natively support broadcast cameras from many manufacturers without requiring a separate camera control unit (CCU).
