Broadcast Pix 802 802 Panasonic Camera Control ‐ up to 12 cameras via RS422 (requires 811, 814, or 818)
Can control a wide-range of Panasonic cameras, including the AW-HE100, AW-PH400 and other Panasonic pan-tilt camera control systems. Up to 12 cameras with up to 100 presets positions may be controlled. Depending on your installation, other Panasonic control cables may be necessary.
For installations needing longer runs you may also use an RS-422 configuration, which extends the maximum length to 1,200 meters (4,000 feet). Note, not all Sony VISCA camerassupport RS-422 communication. When using an RS-422 connection, there are 3 configuration options, and depending on installation needs, you may connect cameras in a daisy chain, star or star/daisy chain combination.
The single camera configuration option # 811 includes a DB 9-pin RS-232 to screw terminal RS-422 converter, which plugs into the workstation in either COM 1 or COM 2. From the screw terminal you may connect your first camera using the 9-pin connector plug provided with the camera. From the same connector you may loop communication to the rest of your cameras.
If controlling more than one camera, there is an optional 4 or 8 port Edgeport serial extender (option #814 or #818) to accommodate either star configurations. This method is useful when needing to run long home run to various studios.
