Dreamchip AtomOne



  • Cyanview CI0 provides control of **Dreamchip AtomOne ** via serial protocol.
  • This guide is valid for all AtomOne cameras

When using a C-mount lens with dreamchip motors, the lens is controlled through the camera itself (AUX port) and detected automatically. But the motors needs to be calibrated and configured through the Dreamchip provideo software.



Camera is red in the config

Lens control issue

  • Check your wiring (lens should be plugged in the camera and camera plugged in CI0)
  • Check if your camera is up to date on the Dreamchip wiki
  • Check if the camera is controllable using the Dreamchip software
  • Ensure the lens is properly calibrated in this software
  • Ensure you have a proper power supply some camera (AtomOne 4K, etc.) with lens motorisation have some powerspikes during startup.
  • Try to use a dedicated 12V DC power supply if you're on PoE

Some camera controls are not displayed

  • Check if your camera is up to date on the Dreamchip wiki
  • Reset your camera to factory default:
    • On your RCP, click on Camera > Custom
    • Click on the touch screen on FACTD, this will put your camera to factory default
    • Click on the touch screen on STORE, this will save this factory default in the camera to ensure it is still OK on the next reboots
    • Unplug and Replug your camera in

From the field

  • RCP
  • CI02
  • 2 x CY-CBL-DREAMCHIP-013
  • 4 x CY-CBL-6P-EXT-5M4

For this project, they did a custom cable combining data, power and video. And the CI0 is placed under the referee chair.

  1. requires a motorised lens

  2. CI0 is powered by PoE and control/power the 2 cameras

  3. one cam is plugged on each port of the CI0

  4. you can extend the distance between a CI0 and the camera with this cables (0.5m, 1m, 3m, 5m) and you can combine them.

  5. This cable plugs in the head. So CI0 is power by PoE and control/power the camera (port 1) and the head (port 2).

  6. The Dreamchip motors are plugged on camera's AUX port, CI0 connects to camera POWER. Single cable needed to control camera and motors (as motors are controlled through the lens)

  7. The extension cable was used to put the CI0 away and easily mount the camera

  8. CI0 has a hole with screw in the body to mount the head on it (and put a magic arm on the other side), making the setup very compact : 1 PoE for data and power, 1 SDI out for video.

  9. This cable is similar to CY-CBL-DREAMCHIP-01 except its longer and more flexible to allow easy mouvements from the head

  10. This cable plugs in the head. So CI0 is power by PoE and control/power the camera (port 1) and the head (port 2).
