Broadcast-quality joystick controller for extremely smooth and accurate pan, tilt and zoom control.
The Precision Camera Controller boasts a broadcast-quality joystick designed for smooth and accurate pan, tilt and zoom control, as well as CCU image control functionality for controlling up to seven PTZ cameras. By integrating CCU control into the system users can control red and blue gain, detail, and iris with adjustable gain with any Vaddio PTZ camera. One-push white balance (OPWB), auto white balance (AWB) and auto iris are also available to those who desire a more automated image control system. The CCU control surface gives system users real-time knobs and buttons to control each of these functions.â€¨â€¨
Designed to control up to seven PTZ cameras, the Precision Camera Controller can be used as a stand-alone device or in conjunction with a variety of video switchers or mixers on the market today. In addition, two Precision Camera Controllers can be linked together to allow the user to control all cameras from either controller

Large focus wheel for fast, accurate manual focus
3-Axis hall effect joystick
Seven discrete auto-sensing RS-232C camera control ports

Color and Shading Controls Controls for red and blue gain, detail, iris and gain are all accessible on a per-camera basis from the console. One-push white balance (OPWB) and auto white balance (AWB) are also available.
Focus Controls A large focus wheel for fast, accurate manual focus of the camera is built-in. With the push of a button, Fast Focus will zoom the camera in to allow manual adjustment of focus, and then with a second button push, will zoom the camera out to its previous zoom position.
3-Axis Hall-Effect Joystick The improved Hall-Effect joystick includes larger handle for better grip, along with a button that moves the PTZ camera to its home position when pressed.
Seven Auto-Configuring RS-232 Control Ports The Precision Camera Controller has seven (7) discrete control ports which eliminates the need to daisy chain control cabling.

Link To Second Precision Camera Controller The Link port on Precision Camera Controller allows two Precision Camera Controllers to be connected, allowing camera control from one Precision Camera Controller or the other.
External Control Capability The Precision Camera Controller has two rows of seven external control switches. These switches can be tied to Tally outputs and can be used to control external video switchers through contact closures, or connected to tally lights such as those found on Vaddio's WallVIEW CCU series of camera systems.
