Acorn Technologies has signed a partnership arrangement with Broadcast Electronics to bring to market a new camera control system for wireless camera transmitters.
The new BEL Z24 system is the first plug and play control system with integrated tally support, just connect the cameras remote output to the camera interface unit, power on and the system is operational. The system works in the licence free 2.4GHz band so there are no operating costs involved for a frequency licence and no complicated set up for the camera operator.
Using FHSS (Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum) wireless technology the system actively avoids interference resulting in no loss of signal and so delivering an extremely robust connection whatever the environment. The base unit is equally quick to set up and the unit interfaces with the camera manufactures OCP (Paint) control panel supporting full bidirectional control of the camera as with wired systems. The system is fully compatible with any camera back video transmitter and has been designed to be small enough to be mounted anywhere on the camera or Steadicam rig.
Dave Remnant, Acorn Technologies managing director said, “We are always looking to add to our portfolio and Broadcast Electronics were a perfect fit. We have over twenty years of experience in the broadcast sector and we feel this product has all the potential to be a must have for those companies looking to expand their offering for live productions. ”
