Control up to 4 Panasonic video cameras remotely using the MCU-100 (Hand-Held) or MCU-200 (Rack-Mounted) Multi-Camera Controller. The controller allows a distance of up to 300 meters between the cameras and the MCU-100/200 using the included AD-1 Adapters. The interface between the controller & AD-1 is a RS-422 differential line. You can also use CAT-5e/6 cable up to 3280.84 feet (1000 meters).

Save tons of time adjusting cameras with the MCU-100/200 Camera Controller. Imagine this - You're almost ready to shoot. It's time to make sure each camera is configured properly. But wait, how will you check the cameras' outputs on the multi-view and adjust them at the same time? If you're by yourself, you can look at your multi-view monitor, then walk to the camera, make an adjustment, and walk back to the multi-view. You COULD do this many times until all the cameras match each other perfectly on the screen. After the fifth trip to your sixth camera, you're finally done, but you've already spent at least an hour doing adjustments. But what if you have a crew? You could have one of your staff members walk to each camera while you stay at the multi-view, giving him or her directions by intercom. That would be a bit faster. BUT wouldn't it be GREAT if you could do all the camera adjustments yourself without having to leave your multi-view monitor? Now you can, with the MCU-100/200 Camera Controller.

To connect the controller to a camera, first connect the included AD-1 adapter to the camera's CAM/BS port. Then, connect an ethernet cable from the AD-1 to the MCU-100/200. In addition, settings information can be displayed by connecting monitors to each AD-1 adapter using a CVBS cable.
