Datavideo MCU-100S
Multi Camera Controller for Sony Cameras


The MCU-100S from Datavideo allows you to control up to 4 Panasonic or Sony video cameras remotely using the MCU-100 (Hand-Held) or MCU-200 (Rack-Mounted) Multi-Camera Controller. With this version, the MCU-100S you can control up to 4 Sony video cameras using the Hand-Held (MCU-100) multi-camera controller from a distance of up to 984 feet (300 meters). The controller allows a distance achieved 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.

With the MCU-100S you can make all the camera adjustments yourself without having to leave your multi-view monitor - thanks to the Special Rotary Knob for Iris feature. On some other camera controllers, a single knob stores a position value. The problem is that it’s impossible to control individual iris settings between cameras. However, on the MCU-100, the iris knob is not a position knob, but instead it’s a rotary knob that increases or decreases the current setting. So for example, with the MCU-100, you can have camera1 selected, which is at iris position 1, then switch to camera2. Camera2 will be at whatever setting it is at currently, and the knob will be used to increase or decrease the setting. Then, you can switch to the next camera and do the same. In this way, you can tune each camera to have their own individual iris settings.
