Overview

This unique product enables control of built in cue lights on camcorders and connected viewfinders. Cuelite takes a mixer tally output and injects commands into the data path between a camcorder and control panel. This feature assists where camcorders are used in live, multi-camera production and removes the need for additional cue systems.

In addition Cuelite can be used to remotely control and monitor the on-board recorder of the camcorder. It can be used with system cameras without the need for a CCU to control the red cue light and green preview light. An external DC power input means that the control panel can be powered locally, making it possible to extend the data connection to the camera well beyond the manufacturers specification.
