RCP
Camera Shading

Shading everything from Specialty Cameras, Camcorders to Remote Production over the internet.
This is probably the Remote Panel you have been looking for!

Overview

Cyanview’s RCP is a multi-camera control panel that provides shading over most brands and types of cameras used in broadcast. Physical knobs and a touchscreen gives you instant access over most camera settings and allows for an effective matching of your cameras.

The integration with the routers or switchers brings a quick access to all your cameras from a single panel as there are no limits in the number of cameras supported. All Cyanview technologies are integrated together to offer a whole set of key functionalities: tally, wireless, wi-fi, remote production, pan-tilt heads and gimbals control, motorized lenses, etc.

To match your specialty cameras on top-tier productions or to shade your main ENG camcorders or D-Cinema, Cyanview’s RCP offers a major uptick in quality and efficiency, both for setup and operations.

Simple and Powerful Configuration

The Web UI allows to easily compose all the interactions and integrations f your workflow. Adding camera protocols and interfaces, external lenses, pan & tilt, video processors or IP configuration can be done in a few minutes.

Monitor all your Cameras

Multicam Dashboard

There’s no limit in the number of cameras you can add to your workflow. All cameras will appear with their connection status in the Multicam Dashboard, providing an instant view on all the configuration elements and their properties.

Built-in Tally Support

Tally is fuly supported with bult-in camera tally when possible, or external tally lights. Multiple ingest options are available supporting the industry standards, from GPIO to Switcher protocols or TSL.

Integrated Workflow

Cyan’s RCP can not only control cameras but also most components directly related to camera control.

  • Router: automatic preview switching when changing camera from the RCP
  • Color correctors: the RCP can control color correctors as standalone devices or combined with camera control
  • Router panels: the RCP will follow the camera selected on the monitor
  • Joystick: PTZ and pan & tilt heads can be controlled from multiple supported joystick panels

Integration with Color Correctors

One controller for all your color corrector channels. This option is available independently of camera control but can also be combined in a mode where the RCP would control both the camera and the color corrector at the same time, providing the missing paint functions to the camera.

Integration with Routers

Always control the camera you monitor

The RCP supports multiple protocols to control and stay in sync with the router. Select the camera once and everything switches simultaneously. The RCP will track any camera you select on the router panel and will always control the camera selected on the monitor. When using a third-party panel like the Stremdeck, both the RCP and router will follow. And it’s also possible to change the camera directly on the RCP with the router will follow.

Integrate with most routers using Probel SWP-08 or other protocols: Lawo VSM, EVS Cerebrum, Ross, Everts Magnum, Blackmagic routers and switchers, etc.

Integration with Pan & Tilt

One Joystick to control any head

Use the RCP touchscreen or add third-party joystick panels to control pan/tilt, zoom and focus of various cameras or heads. Supports most PTZ cameras, some larger pan-tilt heads, Gimbals over S.BUS and some Micro Heads.

REMI production

Extend camera shading over the internet

The RCP is directly capable to connect over the internet to control cameras for REMI style productions or just to add remote shading on any camera, for news, beauty shots, shows, documentaries, etc.

See our RIO product to learn more about the bridge on the camera side.

Standalone or Integrated

Compact design to fit with any flypack kit.

Frame extension to fit in any OB truck or video station alongside your main RCPs

Flexible configurations

One RCP for all or one RCP per camera

Use a single RCP for an ultra compact but very powerful workflow to integrate all the cameras and devices on small productions or flypack kits.

In OB trucks, studios, use multiple RCP as you need for a typical broadcast setup. Any combination is possible.

Regular updates

Get new functionalities continuously

We’re releasing new functionalities all the time, adding support for new cameras or other third-party equipment. Updates are just a click of a button away as soon as you’re connected on the internet.

Satellites components such as the CI0 will be updated automatically to always match the version of the RCP so there’s no risk to have version mismatch between components.
