Control System

The Vinten HD-VRC Control System is an easy to use, easy to configure control solution that provides multi-user, multi-facility control of pedestals, heads and elevation units.

The HD-VRC Control system is an easy to use, easy to configure control solution that provides your production flexibility. 

Microsoft Windows™ and real time OS technology provide the Vinten system with enhanced operational features that ensure compatibility with all Vinten Robotics.

Utilising flexible Ethernet network architecture, the Windows based touchscreen user interface allows a single controller to be configured for multiple devices and multiple studios within the same network. If remote control is required, a dedicated network communication channel is needed with appropriate traffic policies enabled.

Multiple controllers can be added to the HD-VRC network allowing operational flexibility. Operators can control any studios’ cameras, from any control room (subject to permission).

System interconnection is via industry standard TCP/IP, RS232 and RS422 protocols.

The Vinten Control System allows us to grow with you. It enables you to purchase equipment to suit current needs secure in the knowledge that the system is the heart of all future systems from Vinten, ensuring your system can be fully supported, upgraded with software or compatible with the new range of developments planned in the near future.
