NEW! RUSHWORKS DMX controlled PTX Universal PanTilt Head In addition to pan and tilt, the PTX fixture provides control of zoom, focus, iris, and record start/stop if the cameras support the commands.

The PTX Model 1 is designed to work with smaller cameras like the AJA RovoCam, Blackmagic Design Micro Studio Camera 4K, Marshall CV-350, Canon XA models and other standalone cameras and camcorders of similar size that support VISCA, LANC or analog remote protocol.

 

In addition to pan and tilt, the PTX fixtures support commands for zoom, focus, iris, and record start/stop for many LANC and Panasonic cameras, as well as full VISCA CCU control of cameras like the AJA RovoCam and Marshall CV-350 that support the full VISCA command set.

The internal wiring allows 360° rotation and 80° tilt without straining the cables. The SDI IN is used specifically with the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K, connecting the SDI out of an ATEM switcher to the camera for software control. For cameras that support genlock the SDI IN connector can be used for that signal. The SDI OUT comes from the BNC connection on a paired camera.

Use the DOWN • UP • ENTER buttons to select the DMX fixture ID number in a lighting universe.
The PTX fixture uses standard DMX 3-pin XLR cable connectivity protocol, and supports IN/OUT daisy chaining on a universe with other DMX fixtures.For those not familiar with DMX wiring, the cables can be standard three-conductor shielded Male to Female XLRs … but the chassis Input connector is Male, and the chassis Output connector is Female, which is exactly the opposite from XLR audio panel connectors.
 
The PTX head provides DC power to the camera you select. Each head includes a small “tweaker” for setting the      voltage from 3V to 28V. There is a built-in three-digit voltage meter for monitoring the voltage as you trim the    adjustment.There is a small hole on the side for accessing the voltage adjustment pot.
 
 

Blackmagic ATEM Switchers

The PTX can now be controlled directly from ATEM switchers. All the ATEM switchers, when updated to the latest software, will support the interface to the Micro Studio cameras. The only caveat is that you need to usee the ATEM control panel that has the PTZ joystick, or one of the latest all-in-one switchers that has the built-in panels.


Ctrl+R Camera Control Software

Ctrl+R is the camera control utility embedded in VDESK and REMO, but also available as a standalone app for use on Windows OS devices. Use this app to add sophisticated camera control for production systems like the Blackmagic ATEM, NewTek TriCaster and others, as well as with dedicated hardware switchers from Panasonic, Grass Valley, Ross, Roland, Datavideo and many more.
