Marshall Delivers The New CV-RCP-100

News Image
Marshall has announced the new CV-RCP-100 which delivers touchscreen multiple camera control for up to seven broadcast cameras.

The new unit enables users to remotely control, adjust and match broadcast cameras one at a time, or up to seven at once, without the need to leave the production room or broadcast truck.

Marshall has teamed up with a five-time Sports Emmy award winner to develop a standalone remote RCP solution to adjust, paint, and match broadcast cameras. The CV-RCP-100 Touchscreen Control Unit allows for the remote operation of up to seven broadcast cameras from up to 300 metres away via RS485 (Visca), intuitive touchscreen control, and user friendly fine-tune adjustment dials for quick changes on the fly.

The touchscreen interface includes self help dialogues, favourites settings, save features and menu and sub-menu layouts. Fine-tune finger dials enable precision adjustments for white balance, red/blue gain, gamma, black level, brightness, exposure, iris, shutter, resolution, frame-rate, and many more, again simultaneously, or one at a time.

In addition, the CV-RCP-100 comes pre-programmed with control protocols for leading broadcast cameras, including Marshall POV, remote zoom, full-PTZ, as well as non-Marshall branded cameras on the market. Recent updates to the firmware have added more functionality including digital zoom for all cameras, pedestal control and extended gamma range for the Marshall CV-502 cameras.

For any number of cameras from one to seven, the unit can connect via 3 pin XLR Y-cables along a run or via a 3 pin XLR splitter box interface.

Available in the UK and Ireland from Cache Media, Stuart Cameron from the company, said: "Having total control over many cameras in a fast moving sports situation, perhaps with up to 5 cameras inside a racing car for example, will make life so much easier for editors and programme directors and yet the unit is only small. It can be handheld or incorporated into a console array according to requirements. We believe this is a major step forward in camera control."

The CV-RCP-100 directly adjusts camera settings remotely via RS485 connect without having to manipulate an on-screen display menu. It measures 107mm x 145mm x 43mm excluding projections and boasts low power consumption. It requires only 12V power at less than 12 watts using AC or portable batteries.
