Q-Ball

The Q-Ball is a HD/SD Pan and Tilt camera system combining both modern appearance and high performance in the smallest system currently available.

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”.

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

RCP Panel

The Camera Corps RCP Panel offers a neat and flexible solution for controlling single or multiple camera setups and also provides comprehensive control of many makes and models of camera, in particular those which are not always provided with CCU’s by the manufacturer.

The panel can select up to 5 cameras which can be a mix of different types, and the functions available for control will depend on the particular camera model.

The overall system uses a single data line for all five cameras and the data signal.

Mini Joystick

The Camera Corps Mini Joystick provides a very small but powerful unit which can control up to five pan and tilt heads of many makes and models.

Three small controls below the joystick provide individual speed control of pan, tilt and zoom, and can be set to different values for each of the five channels.

Individual control reverses are provided for pan, tilt zoom and focus and stored separately for each of the five channels.

A single connector on the rear of the unit provides for data input (from a CCU panel), data output, and 12v power input.

The high performance specification and intuitive operation make the Mini Joystick ideal for ‘Com-Cam’ control by inexperienced users.
