COMPLETE CONTROL OF SPECIALITY CAMERAS, LENSES, AND ACCESSORIES IN YOUR PRODUCTIONS
Introducing the Cyanview RCP-J
Here is the RCP-J. We’ve been working on it for over a year. We showed the first working units at NAB 2023, and today, it is officially available. The line-up is now composed of two models:
RCP-J → RCP with the iris joystick controller already integrated and fully functional
RCP → Our classic RCP
This bottom section covers ND, color filters, gain, shutter and quick scene file selection, and of course iris/black/touchdown from the joystick.
One of our core values at Cyanview is upgradability, for software but also for hardware, and we are pleased to announce that our team worked really hard to also offer the Iris Joystick as an add-on. Cyanview customers who already purchased an RCP can upgrade it to an RCP-J by buying an upgrade KIT.
The RCP-J KIT includes the iris joystick controller and the hardware required to upgrade the “classic” RCP.
New RCP UI
A totally revamped RCP GUI, with a modern interface, is also introduced. The new menu structure allows the implementation of many new functions available in the higher-end shoulder cameras and cine cameras.
This is a really exciting time for Cyanview and we would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty.
Everything is in stock! If you have any questions about the Cyanview products or pricing, contact VidOvation.
How to upgrade?
- We can do it for you for an additional fee.
- You can upgrade it yourself following our DIY Assembly Guide.
The Cy-RCP-J is a universal remote control panel compatible with any camera. In fact, any number of cameras can be controlled from a single Cy-RCP and any number of Cy-RCP’s can be used simultaneously, it’s all flexible!
IP-based, it is ideal for any production (even for remote production) and features physical buttons rather than a web interface. It has a slightly smaller form factor than regular remote controls but can be set in a frame to fit the standard RCP size, leaving space for accessories like a mini selection panel or a mini joystick.
To work efficiently, the system synchronizes touch-down (and Tally) between the Cy-RCP and matrix: selecting a camera from the Cy-RCP also controls the matrix to switch the vision monitor, and selecting another camera from the matrix panel also changes the displayed camera on the Cy-RCP.
Specialty cameras usually lack video processing features in various ways, meaning that color correction equipment is often added for post-processing and frame sync. We’ve also integrated these from our Cy-RCP in a seamless blend of camera and post controls. So, whatever is available in the camera head is controlled there, and what is missing (i.e., black balance, gamma) is done in the post-production phase by controlling the video corrector. The camera interface stays consistent from one camera to another, on one camera saturation might be applied in the head while on the next one, the same knob will control saturation on the video corrector.
The Cy-RCP is supported by the Cy-CI0, which, from a simple RJ45 connection, enables control of cameras, lenses, and other accessories via RS232, RS422, RS485, and LANC serial protocols. Power is provided via PoE+.
