The Broadcast Electronics CCC-1 is a unique device interfacing Sony Remote Control Panels (RCP) with Colour Correctors and Standards Converters including the Blackmagic Teranex range. Putting colour correction at the fingertips of vision engineers.
There are many situations where standards converters are used synchronise, scale and adjust the colour balance of a live video feed. The CCC-1 interface marries the familiar ergonomics of the RCP with the colour correction features of the Teranex standards converter, enabling vision engineers to paint/shade any video source.
The systems primary application is to provide live colour correction and standards conversion of any video feed. In sports broadcasting the system might be used to legalise, colour balance and scale a POV minicam to UHD. By using this system it opens up the possibility of using almost any camera. Even those that do not ordinarily support remote paint control such as high speed cameras, action cameras or DSLR cameras. Even camera feeds from smart phones.
In addition to colour correction of live cameras, the system can be used to provide live colour correction to incoming programs such that they can be subtly tweaked to match another programme. Particularly useful for news programmes.
A further application might be to tweak the colours of in-vision monitors and projection. Vision engineers can quickly make adjustments to these feeds to make them appear the correct colour through a camera.
