Las Vegas (April 22-27, 2017) – At the 2017 NAB Show (booth ##C8319), Telemetrics, a leader in camera robotics and control systems, will introduce the IU-S5, the latest generation Camera/Lens Interface Unit that works in tandem with the Telemetrics RCCP-1 Control Panel. The IU-S5 features highly integrated control over all the most common broadcast cameras and lenses.
Designed for remotely operating both ENG style and studio “box” cameras, the new IU-S5 interface allows operators to quickly 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 IU-S5 interface relays the camera and lens control signals much like a robotic head – but without the head. It also is fully compatible with all types of virtual set configurations.
“Our line of camera and lens interfaces have proved popular with crews that need to have reliable control over non-robotic cameras located in hard-to-reach camera locations,” said Anthony Cuomo, President of Telemetrics. “This latest version builds upon its predecessors with new control features that make our new control interface units more powerful and flexible than ever.”
Earlier versions of the product have been used extensively 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.
With this new introduction of the IU-S5, Telemetrics now offers remote camera control for most Sony, Grass Valley, Panasonic, Ikegami, JVC, and Hitachi cameras, as well as both analog and digital lenses from Canon and Fujinon. Auxiliary robotic devices such as all Telemetrics camera trolley and Televator® systems can also be controlled through the new IU-S5 interface converter. Power to the camera can also be supplied through the camera/lens interface unit. The IU-S5 can be mounted in a portable rack or permanent chassis with included power supplies.
