The Netherlands, Amsterdam, July 22, 2008 – Nucomm, Inc., a worldwide provider of premier digital and analogue video microwave systems, is broadening wireless camera control capabilities through the IBC 2008 showcase of its CC-1 Camera Control unit (Stand 1.A30). Designed to work with Nucomm’s signature CamPac 2 HD/SD COFDM camera-back transmitter, the CC-1 expands the features of the CamPac 2 through a software-based data interface that allows the CP2/CC-1 to work with various camera manufacturer’s control panels and command protocols.
The CC-1 uses the camera manufacturer’s original remote control or operations control panel, allowing video operators to work within a seamless environment between wired and wireless cameras. In addition, the system allows users access to all of the features and menus of the original control panel. The CC-1 also offers remote control capabilities over the CamPac 2, accessing all menu driven features via a companion remote interface panel.
“In the past, using a generic control interface panel would offer only a few of the camera’s available features to the user; however, with the CC-1, every feature that is available on the camera’s remote panel can be utilized without limitations,” explains Nucomm Product Manager Anthony Sangiovanni. “In addition, the CC-1 allows broadcasters to remotely control the CamPac 2 transmitter, which results in cost and time efficiency during remote location set up.”
The CC-1 is available in two radio options, either a licensed 450 MHz or an unlicensed spread spectrum 900 MHz. For more information about Nucomm and its CC-1, call +1 908-852-3700 (USA) or +44-1449-736033 (UK/Europe).
