The Broadcast Electronics Camera Control Unit (CCU-1) is a unique device interfacing Sony Remote Control Panels (RCP) with specialist cameras including the Dreamchip Atom One miniature camera range. This device allows vision engineers to make detailed adjustments to the cameras using the control panel they are already familiar with.
The Dreamchip Atom One cameras provide unprecedented image quality in a range of different form factors and picture formats. These versatile cameras incorporate sophisticated colour adjustment features and can be configured to a level normally only found on traditional broadcast cameras.
Sports broadcasting in particular can rely heavily, sometimes exclusively on miniature cameras and image quality is a key consideration. The CCU-1 facilitates the detailed and familiar control by RCP in these critical applications. For applications where miniature cameras are used alongside Sony broadcast cameras the same control panel type can be used for all cameras.
Specialist miniature cameras have a broad range of applications in sports, wildlife, concerts and reality TV. In a situation where it’s not practical to use a traditional broadcast camera it can almost always be achieved using a miniature camera.
Some of the biggest sports productions rely on miniature cameras to achieve unique shots in the middle of the action. Typical applications in sports broadcasting include athletics field events, on-board cameras for motor sport, in-goal cameras, referee or even player cameras and UAV mounted cameras.
Many reality TV shows use miniature cameras for subtlety as they can be hidden away. For concerts miniature cameras can be placed close to the performance without impeding the audience view. Whatever the application, the cameras have the ability to put the viewer closer to the action.
