DESCRIPTIONS

AW-RP150 Advanced Camera Controller for Panasonic PRO PTZ Robotic Cameras

The AW-RP150 is a full-featured camera controller, allowing camera operators to get the most out of their Panasonic robotic cameras. This controller is the perfect choice for large multi-camera video productions, such as live TV broadcasts and livestreams. A range of advanced features make the RP150 the flagship camera controller in the lineup, and an ideal companion to the AW-UE150 PRO PTZ performance camera model.

Touchscreen Interface

The touch panel GUI monitor supports camera image display during shooting as well as a variety of operations. The panel is equipped only with buttons that are frequently used, with menu and camera switching operations, indicators and other functions consolidated in the touch panel GUI.

Touch Focus / Focus Assist

An advanced touchscreen interface allows for touch focus adjustments and provides precision focus assist with peaking. The focus is quickly aligned to the area touched by tapping the screen. In addition, the Focus in Red display assists with aligning focus by framing the part that is in-focus in red.

Single Handed Operation

Control PRO PTZ cameras using one hand. The joystick has a built-in zoom rocker (for controlling PTZ zoom or focus), which allows for ultra-precise camera movements. Remote camera pan, tilt, and zoom control have been integrated into a single joystick on the AW-RP150, allowing for some of the smoothest moves possible. Simultaneously zoom in/out as you frame up a live shot.

4K Crop Frame Control

The 3 frames of the 4K video cropping function can be set and controlled using the joystick and viewed on the integrated monitor. The cropping function loaded on the AW-UE150 can be controlled from the AW-RP150. Images output from the AW-UE150 to the monitor can be cropped in three different locations displayed with colored frames (yellow/ green/magenta), and fine-tuned with the joystick as you watch. Required images can be cropped precisely and simply.

Camera Preset Tracing Memory (PMEM)

More than just a preset, the tracing memory function allows for a full sequence of camera moves and settings to be stored (pan, tilt, zoom focus, iris, gain, white balance) and recalled as needed. Up to 5 minutes for 10 operations can be memorized for a single camera, making it ideal for theaters, rental & staging setups, broadcast studios and more.

Supported Presets

  • Pan & Tilt Position
  • Focus Position
  • White Balance Settings
  • Zoom Position
  • Lens Aperture (manual iris only)
  • Gain

Preset Memory for Simple Camera Control

Registration of the camera angle and other remote camera settings allows them to be easily recalled from the touch panel GUI monitor. The movement speed for playback of the preset memory can be set by the specified speed or time.

Supported Presets

  • Pan & Tilt Position
  • Focus Position
  • White Balance Settings
  • Crop Position Coordinates
  • Zoom Position
  • Lens Aperture (manual iris only)
  • Gain

PoE+ Support

The camera controller can be powered with a single ethernet cable. This simplifies permanent installs and reduces set-up time for mobile video productions.

Simplified Multi-Camera Deployment

Scene files, system settings files and other camera settings can be saved on the AW-RP150GJ SD card. These settings can then be copied to multiple cameras via the SD card. This massively reduces on-location setup time when shooting at events with large numbers of cameras. 

IP connection via a switching hub can be used to control up to 200 remote cameras. Up to 5 remote cameras can be controlled in a serial connection.

SD Card Slot

Save camera settings, camera scene files, and system settings on an SD card. These settings can then be copied to multiple cameras, reducing on-location setup time when using a large number of cameras.

Panasonic PRO PTZ Camera Compatible

The AW-RP150 advanced camera controller is compatible with the full lineup of Panasonic Professional PTZ cameras (excluding the AW-UE4). Let us help you find the right controller for your robotic camera operating needs.
