RCS Selects Panasonic Camera Technology

News Image
Panasonic remote camera technology has been installed as part of a major AV development at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Working alongside Duet Media, Panasonic designed and installed a multi camera streaming system into two of their main performance spaces. The installation will enable RCS to film, record and live stream performances, allowing them to reach a wider audience.

The installed system is based around Panasonic's AW-UE70 camera and the AW-HEA10 camera assist unit. With iPad control of the system, the installation met the Conservatoire's main aim, usability for untrained users, reducing the need for dedicated staff and extensive training.

Paul Barton Hodges, Managing Director at Duet Media Technologies, explained: "It is the ease of use which drew me towards Panasonic systems. In each venue, we have three permanently fixed cameras (UE70's), one in the centre at the back, and one on each side of the auditorium. We then have a fourth camera mounted on a tripod to be positioned on the stage, making it versatile, dependant on how the stage is being used at that time."

While Duet Media had used a number of Panasonic PTZ cameras previously, this was the first occasion that they had coupled them with the HEA10 camera assist unit.

"Having seen a similar system in use at the Royal College of Music, the management and the artists were keen to not emulate, but go along similar lines. It was the whole integration, along with the hardware controllers that control the position of the cameras, which really works," he added.

The AW-UE70 is a 4K Remote Camera with zoom range and pan-tilt performance, delivering 3840 x 2160 resolution at 25p via HDMI, and is capable of 4K IP streaming and in-camera 4K recording.

"The true innovation of the system has been the capability to operate the entire system from iPads, freeing up the operator to actually sit in the audience to experience the concert, as well as controlling the cameras and live recordings," said Professor Aaron Shorr, Head of Keyboard at the RCS. "This aspect of the installation is unique and allows true, one person operation, either from the hardware or from iPads inside the hall."
