Joystick controller with six individual RS-232 camera control ports for accurate pan, tilt and zoom control.
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick is a unique integration joystick with six discrete, auto-configuring RS-232 camera control ports for direct control of PTZ cameras, eliminating the need for daisy chain control cabling.
Each camera can have up to 12 internally stored camera presets effectively removing the internal preset limitations of the camera. The six cameras can also be adjusted individually for the operating environment with adjustments for auto/manual focus, auto/manual brightness, backlight compensation and one push automatic white balance.
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick has two rows of six external control switches that can be used to trigger outputs and control external video switchers with contact closures or tally lights for studio applications. There is also provision for external control of select HD switchers/mixers with built-in RS-232 codes in the system menu. Like all ProductionVIEW series controllers, a 4” LCD preview monitor is built-in.
Six discrete auto-sensing RS-232C camera control ports
12 Camera presets per camera
External control capability (RS-232 and Tally)
Master RS-232 port for external control systems
Individual RS-232C Camera Control Ports
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick has six (6) discrete control ports which eliminates the need to daisy chain control cabling. Focus, brightness, backlight compensation and white balance are also controlled per camera.
Master RS-232 Control Port
A master RS-232 control port on a DB-9F allows connection to other control systems for complete access to the internal functions of the ProductionVIEW Super Joystick.
3-Axis Hall-Effect Joystick
The Hall-Effect joystick allows for control of pan/tilt (X/Y coordinates) and the zoom function (twist for zoom axis). This non-contacting joystick uses industrial quality magnets and sensors, providing solid, consistent performance throughout its entire lifetime.
Six Auto-Configuring Camera Control Ports
Like all other ProductionVIEW controllers, the Super Joystick is capable of identifying and auto-configuring the RS-232 camera control port for each camera attached. The control codes for the some of the following cameras are built-in: Vaddio WallVIEW Series Cameras, Vaddio CeilingVIEW Series Cameras, Vaddio HideAway Series Cameras, Sony EVI-D30, EVI-D100, EVI-D70, & EVI-HD1, Sony BRC-300, BRC-H700, BRC-Z700, Canon VC-C50i & VC-C50iR
Twelve (12) Camera Presets per Camera
Each camera connected to the individual control ports can have up to 12 presets each, for a total of 72 presets, stored in the Super Joystick for recall without storing presets in the camera.
Built-in 4” Diagonal LCD Video Monitor
Like all ProductionVIEW Series Controllers, a 4” (101.6mm) Diagonal LCD Video Monitor is builtin for viewing up to two external video inputs (i.e. preview, main).
External Control Capability
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick has two rows of six external control switches. These switches are tied to trigger outputs and can be used to control external video switchers or control systems with contact closures, or tally lights for studio applications. The Super Joystick also has provision for external control of select HD switchers/mixers with built-in RS-232 codes in the system menu. All button pushes also can be reported out of the Master RS-232 port for translation by a control system (i.e. Crestron® or AMX®) to control many other external RS-232 switchers, mixers or scalers.
Menu Driven System
The ProductionVIEW Super Joystick menus are displayed on a back-lit 2 line LCD and allow the operator to customize the set-up and operation of the joystick for a wide variety of applications.
The individual and master RS-232 control port pin-outs are clearly labeled on the back panel.
