each of the four different light channels, and one or more LED panels can be set to one channel. The settings include dimmer control and colour temperature. There are also master settings for storing six different light scenes, meaning that the user can set

and store six different combinations of light presets for the LED panels. Fade speed control between light scenes is adjustable. Strobe and running lights, with adjustable speed are also available. Each LED light panel has 528 LEDs, producing 2000LUX.

Videosys plans launches for BVE [Videosys]

Videosys Broadcast will launch a number of products at BVE. The company’s wireless Camera Control system has been revised and updated with the inclusion of Sony IP Panel support. The new Cobham HD Nano Transmitter, claimed by Videosys to be the smallest H.264 transmitter in the world, will also be on show. The Transmitter has the same 100mw RF power

output as larger models, ensuring solid pictures over more than 1000m. Broadcast RF has taken delivery of eight pre-production Nanos for use on helmet cameras for winter sports and pre-orders have been taken from UAV companies looking for low delay, live broadcast transmission. Videosys claims this is the smallest and lightest COFDM transmitter on the market, and

its considerable weight saving aims to dramatically increase available flight time. Videosys’ camera control has sold over 150 systems worldwide. Its ease of use and ability to use the manufacturer’s control panel has proved popular with hire and OB companies and studios. Sony IP control has now been included for ease of assigning RCPs. The new Camera Receiver will also be

shown at BVE. Designed to fit into third party video transmitter systems, Videosys has provided a simple upgrade path to owners and operators of equipment outside of the Cobham stable. L58
