The RCC1000 controller is designed for Sony pan tilt zoom cameras and supports VISCA protocol (meaning it will work with any Sony PTZ camera...EVI, BRC, or SRG series). In addition this cctv robotic camera controller should work with any ptz camera using the VISCA command protocol. It has almost all of the functions of the Sony PTZ camera handheld IR remote and adds a touch sensitive joystick control. In addition to the joystick and keyboard, the controller has a small screen for displaying commands and the camera's working status. Offering similar functionality this controller is a great alternative to the Sony RM-BR300. Besides the already mentioned Sony cameras, the RCC1000 has been tested with all the Hitachi PTZ cameras (VZ-HD3600A, VZ-HD3650A, VZ-HD3700A, VZ-HD3780A).

How is the RCC1000 joystick controller connected to the GOHD400 ptz camera?
The RCC1000 will not operate the camera(s) using RS422 for control? Here are a few troubleshooting suggestions: - Make sure the camera(s) is set to RS422. Review your specific camera manual for instructions on how to change this setting. - If your system consists multiple cameras, make sure Camera 1 is installed and operating properly before installing camera two and so on. In other words, install/connect one camera at a time. - Verify that you have correctly wired the cameras. See the RCC1000 manual for a wiring diagram. - Verify that the camera(s) baud rate is correct (9600 bps). Review your specific camera manual for instructions on changing the baud rate.
When controlling multiple cameras, how you do set the Camera IDs on the RCC1000? When the system is powered on, the cameras will be assigned an ID based on the order they are installed in the daisy-chain configuration. If camera assignment does not occur automatically (i.e., controller will not control all cameras in the chain), Press and hold [SetID] for 2 seconds and camera IDs will be set in sequence.
Can this controller SIMULTANEOUSLY pan and zoom cameras? The Sony controller can do so, but I am noticing some other can not. They will pan, tilt or zoom but not at the same time.
Yes the RCC1000 will simultaneously pan, tilt, AND zoom. So you can do any combination (two or three) of these control functions simultaneously.
Can the RCC1000 control Sony's BRC series cameras? Yes, the RCC1000 can control Sony's BRC series of PTZ cameras. However, you will need to set the pan/tilt speed range to HIGH or SUPER (see page 6 of RCC1000 manual) because the BRC camera motor is different than the EVI camera motor.
