The Vinten HD-VRC Control System provides multi-user, multi-facility control of Vinten and selected 3rd party robotics.
The HD-VRC enables highly accurate positioning of the camera, and provides shot storage of all axis in an easy one-touch operation. For supported cameras, shading settings may also be saved with the stored shot for recall. Ease of use is complemented by powerful functionality, including the creation of developed, curved moves through operator defined ‘waypoints’. Supported by the latest range of Vinten robotic hardware, this feature can be used to create beauty/signature shots that bring something special to the visual production and used as a brand identifier to catch the attention of the target audience.
The flexible, standards compliant Ethernet network architecture of the HD-VRC allows users to increase both production efficiency and output. The Windows based touchscreen user interface allows a single controller to be configured to control multiple devices within the same logic sub-network, or across separate network segments – allowing studios in distance cities or even continents to be presented in a unified way. For full operational flexibility multiple controllers can be added to the network, enabling shared control of any studio from any control room, supporting failover for redundancy and load balancing for larger networks of robotic devices.
A range of joystick control panels are available to match the requirements of the user, offering optional pedestal controls (X/Y/Z) and camera shading controls as well as preferred positioning of the focus control. Video switcher and tally interfaces provide live on-air camera feeds for monitoring purposes and thumbnail video capture. For fully automated operation an optional interface enables pre-set shots to be triggered by all major playout systems.
The Vinten HD-VRC sits at the heart of Vinten robotic solutions, helping you to control fresh perspectives that support your production’s distinct identity.
