Ikegami Collaborates with Ross Video’s DashBoard open network control and monitoring platform at IBC2016
The Ikegami HDL-45E is a multi-purpose HD camera with three 2/3-inch 2.3 megapixel AIT CCD imagers, an LSI processor and high quality 14-bit analog to digital converters. It can be used in lighting levels down to 0.065 lux without frame accumulation, or 0.00054 lux with frame accumulation. Applications include 3D video rigs, pole cameras and security.
Ikegami has developed the interface for DashBoard, an open platform from Ross Video for facility control and monitoring allowing the POV camera to be controlled over a TCP/IP network. The DashBoard enables users to quickly build unique tailored CustomPanels that make complex operations simple, providing control and monitoring within the openGear and DashBoard Connect ecosystem.
“This compatibility with Ross Video's DashBoard system gives Ikegami camera operators a wider range of choice in the way they control the HDL-45E,” comments Hiroshi Akiyama, Division Deputy Director, Marketing Division `of Ikegami Tsushinki Co., Ltd. "It works particularly well with the Ross Video robotic pan/tilt system."
“We are very proud to have Ikegami integrating control of their cameras in DashBoard,” said Greg Quirk, Product Manager for DashBoard at Ross Video. “This is exactly what the open DashBoard platform was created for as it allows partners to create control interfaces for their devices to simplify workflows for end customers.”
