Bradley Engineering: Miniature goalcam and CCU receiver12 September 2014
Elkam, a miniature HD goalcam, and what is possibly the world’s smallest CCU receiver, are two of the new products on the Bradley Engineering stand.
Bradley’s Elkam is a specialised HD camera in an elbow shape, suitable for goal posts or nest boxes. It has a full HD MOS sensor, a 100º wide-angle lens and full remote control. It can be used with Bradley’s Remote Control Panel Mk3, which can control all four goalmouth cameras on the pitch. The Elkam uses a two-megapixel 1/3 inch CMOS sensor and supports a wide range of HD formats (1080p 50, 59.94, 60; 1080i 50, 59.94, 60; and 720p 50, 59.94 and 60).
The tiny new RD12 receiver, which is being demonstrated providing full CCU control for a Sony broadcast camera, is, Bradley believes, probably the smallest CCU receiver yet made, and is capable of controlling all of the parameters on a broadcast camera. At just 100 grams and 88mm x 60mm x 12.5mm, it operates with Sony, Ikegami, Panasonic and Bradley cameras, to give CCU control for iris, tally, red gain, blue gain and pedestal. It uses one single cable for power and data, and the RD12 and its corresponding transmitter, the RD11, operate in the license free zones and are frequency agile with user selectable channels.
