Sony’s RM-IP500 Remote Controller for up to 100 Cameras
“The RM-IP500’s simple set up, portable size and powerful features let PTZ users create an efficient and cost-effective live production system,” said Norbert Paquet, Strategic Marketing Manager, Sony Professional Europe. “With flexible zoom patterns, speed control capabilities, preset recall and firmware upgrades that offer future support and new capabilities, this new remote controller will significantly boost efficiency. A single person can professionally control each angle across multiple PTZ cameras without any stress, which makes our customers’ operations much more efficient.”
Greater Flexibility and Easier Operation of PTZ Cameras
The flexible controller allows for one-handed PTZ joystick operation, and can be customized to a user’s preference. Selectable zoom control gives users the option of seesaw (left hand) or joystick (right hand) operation. The controller allows for easy adjustment of PTZ speed, and direct buttons are available for frequently used functions. It also enables recall PTZ functions such as PTZ trace memory*1 and preset at the push of a button.
Easy set up for large scale system installations as well as live event systems
The RM-IP500 simplifies IP assignment for up to 100 cameras using the AUTO IP Setting, enabling fast set up and streamlined operation. In addition, a user can program preset camera angles for precise, easy maneuvering by a single person. With a newly designed compact body, the controller measures 306 mm x 159.3 mm x 224.1 mm; or 12 1/8 inches x 6 3/8 inches x 8 7/8 inches (without projection) and can mount on, or in, any console.
The RM-IP500 supports a host of control formats including RS-422 and VISCA over IP as well as:
· VISCA RS-422 : RJ-45x 1
· LAN : RJ-45x 1, 10BASE-T/100BASE-TX automatically detected
· GPI I/O (Tally In/Contact Out) : D-Sub 15-pin type
The RM-IP500 Remote Controller is planned to be available from late spring 2017.
