Affordable Software System Provides Full Control for Canon and Sony PTZ Cameras.Mahwah, NJ (January 26, 2011) − Telemetrics, Inc. has now made it easier to remotely operate Canon’s BU Series and Sony’s BRC Series PTZ cameras with the TeleSoft Camera Control Automation software. Working with a touch screen or a mouse to maneuver around the computer pictorial control panel, operators have full camera control of up to eight cameras using a virtual joystick, and can store up to 16 presets. The Windows™ based software can also be used with an optional DirectX Gaming joystick, complete with assignable buttons for P/T/Z/F.
“The TeleSoft software was engineered with simplicity and ease of use in mind and enables users to more easily and readily enjoy the benefits of these integrated PTZ cameras,” said Anthony Cuomo, Vice President and General Manager, Telemetrics, Inc. “It’s a powerful yet affordable solution that fits the demands of today’s production and recording environments.”
In addition to the basic PTZ, focus and elevation functionality, the TeleSoft Control System includes the ability to adjust camera video performance. The Telesoft Software provides the ability to adjust camera CCU settings with automatic GUI indicators. A direct serial control connection now complements the existing Device Server-Ethernet control system configuration. XY Axis Control Slider Bars are also available.
Telemetrics also offers a hardware-based Camera Control Automation system for these cameras; that offers additional control functionality for efficient control of studio operations. The RCP-TS units feature a user-intuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI) with a joystick for camera pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris and master pedestal control. A special assignable knob is used to control the GUI and CCU functions which emulate the camera manufacturer’s setup panel.
Both the Telesoft and RCP-TS Camera Control Automation systems provide control of a mix of Canon PTZ cameras including the NU-700, BU-45H and BU-50H. The systems can also be used to control Sony P/Z cameras, Telemetrics Robotic Pan/Tilt Heads and broadcast cameras.
