Wiring

Compatible Cyanview device: RCP, RIO, RIO Live

If the RCP/RIO doesn't have an IP address in the same range as the camera IP, you should add one in the LAN section by following this guide.

Setup

In this example, we will set up a Panasonic AW-UE150, but the setup is similar for all other PTZ.

On the same RCP. You can have multiple PTZ from multiple brands without any issue.

Setup:

  • Click on the + in the camera block, a new panel will appear on the right
  • In General Configure a Number and a Name
  • Select the brand (here Panasonic)
  • Select the model (here AW-UE150)
  • Enter the IP of your PTZ

If everything went well, it should go green:

Pan/Tilt

Once the camera is configured, you can have:

  • Cyanview RCP (shading) and Sony joystick panel (rm-ip500)
  • Cyanview RCP (shading + pan/tilt/zoom/focus) from touchscreen, more information here
  • Cyanview RCP (shading + pan/tilt/zoom/focus) from USB joystick, more information here

Remote control / Remote production

Even if the PTZ control is IP, it can be interesting to combine a PTZ with a RIO (with AVIWEST for example).

Or combine local shading with RCP with remote shading from anywhere in the world using a second RCP.
