Videosys Broadcast will be showcasing its Epsilon 4K base station Camera Control Unit (CCU) to German audiences as part of a five-city tour organised by systems integrator Studio Hamburg MCI GmbH.
The MCI Roadshow, which starts on November 20th, aims to introduce German IT, AV and broadcast specialists to the latest technology for professional UHD wireless cameras and IP-based intercom.
Videosys’ Epsilon system is designed to simplify the installation of wireless cameras and significantly reduce setup time. During the MCI Roadshow it will be shown in conjunction with Clear-Com’s Eclipse HX digital matrix and Arcadia Central Station, a scalable IP-connected intercom platform that supports over 100 wired and wireless user stations.
Epsilon operates with cameras from all of the main manufacturers including Sony, Panasonic, GVC, ARRI, Hitachi and Ikegami. During the Roadshow, Videosys will present Epsilon with its AEON-CC compact digital COFDM video transmitter with integrated camera control that is designed for high-quality wireless connections. The company will also show a number of new features including ethernet FX9 camera control and wireless transmitter control, which allows the shader/painter to take over control of the transmitter, thus giving camera operative the time and space they need to focus on capturing the moment. In addition, Videosys will highlight its new, inbuilt transmitter for the Grass Valley LDX98 native single-speed camera, which gives users a cleaner, non-cabled and more manageable wireless camera.
“By working with MCI and Clear-Com, we aim to show the full benefits of wireless connectivity, and how this technology can make camera operatives’ jobs faster and easier,” says Colin Tomlins, Managing Director of VideoSys Broadcast. “Epsilon’s seamless wireless workflow chain, together with our AEON web interface, delivers an unparalleled user experience and enables efficient wireless camera control and RF over fiber capabilities.”
The timetable for the MCI Roadshow is as follows:
November 20th – Bavaria Studios, Munich
November 22nd – MMC Studios, Cologne
November 23rd – Audio-Technica, Mainz
