Videosys Broadcast launches Epsilon 4K: a camera control unit for studio and outside broadcast

Videosys Broadcast has recently released a new control unit for broadcasters. Epsilon 4K base station Camera Control Unit (CCU) is designed to simplify Radio Camera installation by offering a system that is conceptually similar to regular CCU systems. It is primarily configured to operate with the DTC range of transmitters, with optional dual head operation and it also offers up to four channel Maximum Ratio Combining (MRC) diversity.

The solution has recently been implemented in companies such as German solutions provider Studio Hamburg MCI GmbH. MCI specialises in developing solutions for IT and AV projects. They use Epsilon 4K for productions where a fast set up time and secure transmission must be guaranteed.

The solution functions with a touch screen interface and has compatibility with existing Videosys control systems. The system comprises up to two, dual channel fibre receive slot in modules, RF receiver and decoder options either HD – H264 or H265 up to 4K. In 4K mode Epsilon can operate either single or dual pedestal. Return camera control is Uni or Bi-Directional.

Nicolai Gajek, Sales Manager for Studio-Hamburg MCI, says: “The Epsilon System from Videosys is a user-friendly wireless camera system. All it needs to do for a single-zone operation is plug in an SMPTE cable and it’s ready to go. Plug-and-play. Furthermore, it convinces by combining the components of a video wireless system with telemetry control and fibre conversion in one device.”

Colin Tomlin, Managing Director of VideoSys Broadcast, adds: “In OBs today the movement of trucks from venue-to-venue places engineers are under intense pressure to deliver facilities with increasingly reduced rig times. A tool that makes a radio camera with any control, let alone Bi-Directional control, easier to install and operate is very appealing, particularly for those situations where an RF engineer is not available.”
