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.”

RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer, today announced a new Video over IP (VIP) platform that allows integrators to distribute 4K UHD video over a 1GB network switch.

For the user, everything in the system is conveniently displayed on an RTI touchpanel, remote, or mobile device with video preview, making it easy to align any source with any display.

“Our new VIP platform allows integrators to take advantage of existing network infrastructure to cost-effectively distribute crystal-clear video to displays across installations of any size,” said RTI Director of AV Product Management, Neal Ellsworth. “We’ve designed it so that integrators can deliver the benefits of Video over IP without the need for a deep understanding of networking or the need to manually assign IP addresses. It’s fully integrated into the RTI Integration Designer APEX programming and configuration platform, so all endpoints auto-discover and configure. This saves time on every installation.”

When Immanuel Baptist Church of Little Rock, Arkansas designed its new on-campus City Center for hosting community and local corporate activities, it purchased three SK-HD1800 cameras from Hitachi Kokusai Electric America, Ltd. (Hitachi Kokusai) to enable premium-caliber, in-house video production capabilities. The visual quality of the Hitachi cameras has shone even brighter during the COVID-19 pandemic, elevating the church’s live streaming and IMAG as it moved its services from its primary church building to the new City Center auditorium.

Founded in 1892, Immanuel Baptist’s vision is to be a gospel advancing church, for the gospel, for the city and for the world. Developed in a massively renovated former grocery supermarket on the same campus as Immanuel Baptist’s main church building, the City Center was created for use by community organizations and companies for conferences, training seminars, and special events.
