Vaddio Releases ControlVIEW XHD Seamless Switcher

controlview_xhd.jpg MINNEAPOLIS, MN (June 9, 2009) – Vaddio, the leading manufacturer and OEM distributor of specialty PTZ cameras and high-end camera control systems, introduces the new ControlVIEW XHD, an automated robotic PTZ camera controller with HD, RGBHV and SD video switching, video transitions and camera preset trigger functionality.

“ControlVIEW XHD, used in conjunction with StepVIEW Mats, AutoVIEW IR sensors or other triggers devices, allows the instructor to focus on teaching, not the technology,? explained President and CEO of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. “Seventy-two preset camera positions can be set up to six PTZ cameras with seamless switching between inputs — including transition options such as a fade or variety of wipes — for higher production value.?

Besides classroom automation, ControlVIEW XHD can be used in a variety of applications such as live event production, videoconferencing, as well as many others. The 6 x 1 switcher accepts analog SD, HD and RGBHV on all inputs and up/downscales these signals to dual program outputs at either an SD, HD or RGBHV resolution.

ControlVIEW XHD works with a variety of robotic PTZ cameras in the Vaddio line including Vaddio, Panasonic, Sony and Canon. Input trigger accessories that work with ControlVIEW XHD include Vaddio TouchVIEW RF buttons, StepVIEW Mats, AutoVIEW IR sensors and MicVIEW, as well as other third-party contact closure devices. Simply program a trigger device, such as a StepVIEW Mat, to a preset camera pan/tilt/zoom position. When an instructor walks onto the StepVIEW Mat or a student presses a push-to-talk microphone, ControlVIEW XHD moves the camera to the programmed camera position, and then switches to that camera.

ControlVIEW XHD can also be connected to the Precision Camera Controller, through the link ports found on both products, for a low-cost HD switcher/camera controller package.
