Broadcast Pix Announces Robotic Camera Control for New JVC PTZ Cameras

​Broadcast Pix has announced the expansion of robotic camera control within its integrated production switchers to support JVC’s new KY-PZ100 PTZ network video production cameras through serial and IP connections. Each system can control pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris, gain, and preset recall for up to 12 cameras.

JVC cameras can be controlled using the joystick on any Broadcast Pix control panel. PixButtons, Broadcast Pix’s patented control buttons with dynamic LED displays, provide quick access to up to 100 preset positions, and can set the speed and range of PTZ camera movements. 

The cameras can also be controlled via touchscreen using BPview, Broadcast Pix’s customizable multi-view, as well as the Broadcast Pix Commander browser-based interface on a computer or mobile device. With PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology, a single cable powers the KY-PZ100 and delivers IP video and control to a Flint, Roadie, or new BPswitch system.

JVC PTZ camera control will be available on all current Broadcast Pix models and the new BPswitch family of integrated production switchers as part of a new system software release, which will be available in late 2017. The new software will be available as a free upgrade for systems currently under warranty.
