The Vaddio 999-5600-000 ProductionVIEW HD multi-camera control system is designed to handle the most demanding live broadcast or staging events, yet it's simple enough to allow a novice to shoot like a pro. ProductionVIEW HD integrates PTZ camera control and multi-format HD/SD live switching with real-time graphics and effects into one easy-to-use control console. Camera Control Console with HD, RGBHV and SD video mixing, transitions, lower screen graphics and automated control functionality.
The completely redesigned surface gives system users real-time knobs and buttons to control functions. Because ProductionVIEW HD is a live broadcast console, not a computer, the entire system produces only one frame of delay - a critical requirement where image magnification is used.
The system's multi-format 6 x 2 switcher accepts any combination of input signals from HD component video, RGBHV and SD video (HD at component 1080p, 1080i and 720p; SD video Y/C or composite; and RGBHV up to UXGA resolutions). All inputs feature both up/down conversion capabilities with each input having its own user selectable output resolutions.
A wide variety of transitions, including cuts, dissolves and wipes, can be achieved through user-selectable buttons built into the control surface. Furthermore, a new Lower Screen Graphic (LSG) function allows users to overlay graphics onto their video output.
Additional lens features include a large production-style Manual Focus wheel, an Iris control knob allowing for live manual adjustments, push control buttons for auto iris and focus, and a Zoom Speed knob to control the speed of the electronic zoom lens.
The ProductionVIEW HD is capable of identifying by auto-sensing each camera attached. Control codes for most of the following cameras are built-in (see manual for list):
Vaddio WallVIEW™ Series Cameras
Vaddio HideAway™ & CeilingVIEW™ Cameras
