CyanView’s Stephane Ducobu and founder/CEO David Bourgeois were proud of their company's performance at the Le Mans 24 hour motor race.
New Belgian company will introduce several remote camera control tools to simplify TV productions at IBC 2017.
First-time IBC exhibitor CyanView is premiering its exciting new product range at IBC 2017. The new company was created specifically to help broadcast vision engineers get optimum images from mini-cameras, especially in live broadcast. With this goal, the company has developed a range of tools designed to give vision engineers more shading control over remote, often mobile, cameras.
“I have always been fascinated by the precision of the work of vision engineers,” said David Bourgeois, founder and CEO of CyanView. “They pay a lot of attention to all the details that make a picture look good.”
The new CyanView system provides a universal and cost-effective solution that enables productions to easily use any specialty camera without worrying whether it’s feasible or not. It enables vision engineers to quickly, easily and intuitively deliver images that they can be proud of by totally transforming what’s possible in terms of image quality from any mini-camera.
At the heart of CyanView’s IP-based Cy-Stem product range is the Cy-RCP, a universal remote control panel compatible with any camera, that enables the control of multiple cameras. It is ideal for remote production and features physical buttons, rather than a web interface. It is supported by the Cy-CI0 which from a simple RJ45 connection enables control of cameras, lenses and other accessories via RS232, RS422,RS485 and LANC serial protocols. Power is provided via PoE+.
The Cy-GWY gateway features the open Ember+ control protocol, and provides an interface to a VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) and the Lawo V-pro8 video processor. WAN capability enables remote production, update and support.
The Cy-VP4 video processor supports four 3G HD (50/60) cameras or a single 4K (25/50/60) camera, together with SDI in/out and HDMI out for monitoring. The implementation of 3D LUTs (look-up tables) enables advanced, multi-matrix colour correction. Future releases of the Cy-VP4 will see more advanced camera processing and features specifically designed for vision engineers.
CyanView’s product range has undergone extensive pre-launch testing in real world scenarios. In April, it supported the production of the Ninja Warrior TV game show. The range was also extensively involved in the most recent series of French TV game show Fort Boyard, where 22 CyanView-supported minicams were key to the success of the program. The Cy-RCP was integrated with AMP VISUAL TV’s HF system to control all the onboard cameras at the Le Mans 24h motor race.
