CyanView Wins Order from NEP Germany for Camera Control Solution
NEP chose the CyanView solution to support its coverage of sport – notably ice hockey and basketball – to enable it to deploy mini-cameras in any location (for example, on a basketball backboard to capture the ball passing through the hoop). The CyanView solution fulfills the vision engineer’s requirement for full camera control, including advanced colour correction.
“NEP has become a pre-eminent provider of outside broadcast, live events and remote production companies for many reasons – and among those is our constant innovation, helping our customers deliver content that is engaging and compelling and, often, unique,” said Zlatan Gavran, Managing Director of NEP Germany GmbH. “There is nothing else quite like CyanView’s solution. It allows us to continue to innovate, and will help us deliver new viewing experiences that will help make for even more compelling spectacles.”
The CyanView Cy-RCP is a universal RCP that will work with any camera. IP-based, it can control multiple cameras in a remote production environment. The CyanView Cy-GWY features the open Ember+ control protocol, and provides an interface to a VSM (Virtual Studio Manager) and the Lawo V_pro8 video processor. Its WAN capability enables remote production.
Both Cy-RCP and Cy-GWI are part of CyanView’s Cy-Stem universal mini-camera system which the company will be demonstrating at NAB on stand C8530. Cy-Stem is highly cost-effective, and provides unique versatility and flexibility, enabling the highest degree of creativity, accuracy and quality in a wide range of applications where remote and advanced camera control for production are required such as outside/live broadcasting including sports events, reality TV and game shows.
The Cy-Stem range also includes the Cy-VP4 video processor, which supports four 3G HD (50/60) cameras or a single 4K (25/50/60) camera, together with SDI in/out and HDMI out for monitoring. The Cy-VP4 provides advanced chroma correction and performs like a powerful CCU by enabling image processing of secondary colours to any mini-camera within the production workflow.
