Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of industry leading broadcast and proAV cameras and equipment, has collaborated with CyanView, designer and manufacturer of premiere universal camera control systems, to ensure that select Marshall cameras are compatible with its RCP control panel. This cooperation brings advanced color shading control to several Marshall cameras, as CyanView’s RCP supports Marshall Electronics Miniature HD Cameras (CV503, CV506, CV344, CV346, CV380, CV502), Zoom Block cameras (CV355, CV350) and its Lipstick cameras (CV226, CV225).

“Marshall grew up in the broadcast industry and we’ve been designing equipment for video engineers for over 40 years,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall Electronics. “One of the key features of any camera used in a production workflow is to be able to remote paint and match cameras from the control room. We decided early on that all of our POV cameras had to have this ability and they needed to get integrated into as many third-party RCP and CCU decks as possible. The bottom line is making the customer’s job easier and that is what we have done with this collaboration.”

In Audio, Audio Product News, home_page, Image, Product News, Web Articlesby Media

Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, has released a macOS™-compatible version of its popular STcontroller software application. First offered to support the Windows® operating system, Mac® users can now directly benefit from STcontroller’s support of many Studio Technologies’ Dante-compatible products. STcontroller allows personal computer users to access a product’s operating configuration, displaying existing settings and allowing rapid changes, as desired. Both the macOS and Windows versions of STcontroller are available for download, free of charge, from the Studio Technologies website.

Installing either version of STcontroller is fast and simple, and the program requires a minimal amount of a personal computer’s resources. The new version is a “native” Mac application and is compatible with macOS X Sierra 10.12 and later. Upon starting STcontroller, the application scans an associated local area network (LAN) and automatically identifies compatible Studio Technologies’ Dante devices. Users can then easily confirm and revise selected parameters. Some devices will have just two or three configurable choices, while others can have dozens. In all cases, users are presented with a concise GUI interface. STcontroller is ideal for time-sensitive on-air sports and entertainment applications where “on the fly” changes are sometimes required.

“Today’s AVL applications really demand a lot of flexibility when it comes to power control,” said Mark Bishop, President of LynTec. “Utility space is always at a premium in performance spaces. Designers are always looking for innovative solutions to maximize available space or to find new uses for dead space that wasn’t previously usable. The Narrow Profile Panelboard is less than half the width of a standard panel and can support either 30 or 42 circuits. It’s so thin it can be mounted in a structural support column on the rigging.”
