Vinten Unveils New μVRC Controller

News Image
Vinten has unveiled the Vinten μVRC (microVRC) controller at CABSAT 2017.

The μVRC controller is a new solution that enables studios of all shapes and sizes to control high-end robotics and third-party PTZs. Aimed at users looking for a complete robotic solution that suits their budget, the μVRC is an ideal companion to Vinten's Vantage compact robotic head.

The μVRC controller is suited for users who require control over the Vantage compact robotic head or third-party PTZs, enabling customers to control multiple units for various shooting angles. A modular version of Vinten's HD-VRC software, it gives users access to various features including camera select, pre-set shots, essential shading, playback, and video switcher integration that connects with third-party switchers. Its touchscreen and USB joystick panel are simple to use with the option to personalise the function keys. By using plug-and-play technology, the μVRC controller's auto-discovery setting also enables a quick setup of the user's robotic devices.

The Vinten μVRC is a scalable solution that allows users to adapt and increase the controller's functionality based on their specific needs and budget. By purchasing additional licensing modules, users can expand the software up to all of the features found in Vinten's HD-VRC system. Add-ons include third-party PTZ integration, the ability to add support for ICE, functionality for additional Vantage heads, or full compatibility with the Vinten automation interface.

Neil Gardner, Vinten Product Manager, said: "The amount of content being produced and consumed has increased exponentially, while the cost of production has fallen significantly and broadcast-quality equipment is becoming ever more accessible to smaller studios. And as smaller studios continue to emerge, we wanted to pair our innovative Vantage compact robotic head with a flexible, ergonomic control solution for this rising demographic. By pioneering the new μVRC controller, we now have a complete, robust solution that lets any studio leverage high-quality Vinten robotic systems and reap the benefits of perfect control.

"The studio market is rapidly changing and the need to deploy smaller pro-video cameras is on the rise. By using the μVRC controller in tandem with Vantage, users are given the opportunity to choose which camera and lens would be best for them, while staying within budget. And now with the option to add on functionality according to what you need, this new controller opens up the market to a whole new range of possibilities, especially for broadcast applications such as house of worship, green screen environments and video enterprise."
