Based around the well proven Sony HD camera block, Camera Corps have added exclusive additional features to make this system the most comprehensive and flexible HD/SD Minicam system available today.

The Q-Ball incorporates a high quality built in 10x zoom optical lens and smooth accelerating pan/tilt motors in a robust fully weatherproof aluminum sphere with a diameter of 115 mm/4.5in.

The addition of up to four embedded audio channels allows stereo effects mics to be incorporated in to any set-up.  Master Black level and Colour Saturation control allows much better colour matching of this popular Sony camera with other HD/SD cameras, important in all situations where camera types are “mixed”.

Optional extra features include infra-red capability and a wide angle lens adapter.

Full control of the camera is possible via our RCP Panel, allowing complete control of up to 6 cameras. Where a remote head is also required, the RCP Panel is used in conjunction with the Camera Corps Joystick Control.

Up to 8 remote heads of different types can be operated from one Joystick Control. Camera functions and PTZF data are sent via a standard 3-pin XLR cable.

Up to 96 cameras and remote heads (of various types) can be controlled via one Joystick with the addition of our Multi Camera Control System.

Camera Corps control system allows remote control of all Camera Corps heads and cameras, and can provide control for a number of other brand heads and cameras – contact us for more details.
