AzzurroCam Targets News Bureaus with New Functionality
Azzurro Systems Integration (ASI) has added new functionality to its AzzurroCam fully integrated, compact production system, to target News Bureaus.
Designed to offer a reasonably priced, all-in-one, high-quality HD video transmission solution, AzzurroCam now supports HD, SD and anamorphic SD formats, can control box camera and robotics for higher-end studios or production facilities, and is available in a flypack configuration for portability. AzzurroCam is also ideal for sports arenas, insert studios, corporate AV departments, or other facilities requiring a robotically controlled single or multiple pan/tilt and zoom camera application.
The new functionality adds to AzzurroCam’s menu that includes a proprietary touch screen interface so non-technical users can control multiple cameras and set-up functions, DMX lighting, audio mixer with two microphone inputs, and IFB audio levels. Operation can be accomplished locally or remotely via a PC-based control system that permits remote control of all functions, with presets, using on-screen buttons, or a joystick and control panel. The system interfaces to IP, ASI or HD/SDI transmissions. A low-resolution video stream of the camera output is visible on the touch screen allowing a remote operator to frame shots. AzzurroCam is easily customizable for multi-camera applications, or for single control of several locations. It comes equipped with a Sony robotic controlled HD/SD camera with pan/tilt, zoom, focus, aperture and camera painting.
