University Uses FOR-A's RCAM2 Virtual Studio System

News Image
Bangkok University's School of Communication Arts has been using FOR-A's VRCAM2 virtual studio system.

First installed in January 2011, the school frequently uses FOR-A's sensor-less virtual studio system to train its students in program production, and the technology is also utilized for production of school events. Bangkok University also purchased FOR-A's HVS-390HS video switcher in December of 2013, and purchased another unit last November.

The VRCAM2 provides the school with a virtual studio using a one-man-operated, no-cameraman environment. As Bangkok University prides itself on having a high-quality range of broadcast equipment available to its students, operation of the VRCAM2 has been included in the school’s curriculum for courses on set design and newscast production since 2013. The university is now also offering a new course specifically for virtual studio system technology for television production.

VRCAM2 includes expanded camera positions, sensored cameras, and a host of other useful additional control functions and effects for program production. The system allows for up to four virtual cameras, each of which can be set with up to 32 different angles. It also allows for one-touch operation, enabling students to save their work, including camera switching, subtitles, and scene transitions as playlists.
