Marshall Electronics has unveiled its latest product, the VS-PTC-300 PTZ camera controller, offering users the flexibility to manage multiple protocols seamlessly.
The controller is designed to handle NDI, RS232/RS422/RS485, IP, VISCA over IP, and ONVIF protocols, making it a versatile solution for a variety of setups.
One of the standout features of the VS-PTC-300 is its ability to control multiple cameras simultaneously, whether they use the same or different protocols.
This functionality proves particularly advantageous when transitioning to a larger camera setup.
With the capability to manage up to seven RS232 cameras, fourteen RS422 cameras, and up to 255 NDI/IP cameras, the controller provides a robust solution for users with diverse camera needs.
Additionally, the NDI/IP discovery setup streamlines the process of integrating NDI/IP cameras.
Greg Boren, Product Marketing Engineer at Marshall Electronics, notes, “The VS-PTC-300’s layout provides 10 ‘instant access’ camera control buttons, which reduces fumbling when quick action is required.”
The information display screen serves a dual purpose as a video monitor for NDI and RTSP streams.
Boren adds, “There is no need to type in the camera number before operating the camera; just select the camera button and you’re in control.”
Designed for seamless operation across multiple camera protocols within a single network, the VS-PTC-300 finds applications in live event production and content creation.
The controller boasts a high-quality PTZ joystick, professional zoom rocker, and individual fine-tune adjustment knobs, providing detailed control over various camera settings such as iris, white balance, exposure, red/blue, shutter speed, focus, pan/tilt speed, and zoom speed.
The VS-PTC-300 enhances user convenience with features like six assignable function keys and the capability to save up to 256 camera presets, including image setting parameters.
Dedicated knobs and control buttons provide direct access to frequently used functions, eliminating the need to navigate on-camera menus.
The joystick facilitates “one hand” PTZ/Focus operations, while the sturdy construction ensures stability during joystick operation.
The built-in display further aids the crew by enabling easy checking of framing/focus, preset storage, and practice of camera moves.
Marshall Electronics’ VS-PTC-300 PTZ camera controller is a versatile and user-friendly solution for managing multiple cameras with varying control protocols, catering to the needs of professionals in live event production and content creation.
