Universal Camera Control System

Cy-Stem offers creative solutions that address a variety of applications where advanced camera control is necessary. Cost-effective, the IP-based Cy-Stem is versatile and flexible, encouraging accuracy and creativity while maintaining the highest quality.

The Cy-Stem range includes a universal RCP control panel alongside a series of hardware modules. With these solutions, Cy-Stem focuses on four areas in broadcast production. Firstly, those working on sporting events, reality TV, gameshows, etc. can control and match mini & speciality cameras. Secondly, access to wireless or remote production with ENG and small camcorders is available. Advanced processing for camera matching is possible through integration via the RCP of color correctors. And finally, Cy-Stem addresses digital cinema cameras for live recording (concerts or game shows).

CyanViews three major solutions include:

  • Cy-RCP : Universal Remote Control Panel
  • Cy-CI0 : PoE Camera Interface Module
  • Cy-VP4 : Video Processor

Cy-RCP

Universal Remote Control Panel

The Cy-RCP is a universal remote control designed to work with any camera. With incredible flexibility, a single Cy-RCP can control any number of cameras and any number of Cy-RCPs can function simultaneously.

Ideal for all types of production, including remote, the IP-based Cy-RCP has physical buttons and a small form factor that can be set in a frame to fit the standard RCP size allowing space for a mini selection panel, mini joystick, or other accessories. With power provided via PoE+, the Cy-RCP is supported by the Cy-CI0 and, with an RJ45 connection, controls cameras, lenses and accessories via RS232, RS422, RS485 and LANC serial protocols.

The system synchronises touch-down (and Tally) between the Cy-RCP and matrix. Selecting cameras from the Cy-RCP controls the matrix to switch the vision monitor while selecting different cameras from the matrix panel changes the camera that’s displayed on the Cy-RCP.

Video processing features such as color correction capabilities for post-processing and frame sync are seamlessly integrated into the Cy-RCP. The post-production phase including black balance and gamma is handled by the video corrector. The camera interface is consistent from one camera to the next meaning on one particular camera, saturation may be applied in the head while on the next camera the same knob would control the saturation on the video corrector.

Cy-CI0

PoE Camera Interface Module

The Cy-CI0 is a generic PoE (Power over Ethernet) camera interface module that solves the issues often associated with using specialty cameras: cabling, incompatible equipment and lack of connections.

Fixed to the camera or placed beside it, the Cy-CI0 utilizes a single IP connection to power small cameras directly as well as control them with pre-made cables using a variety of ports (RS232, RS422, RS485, LANC, TTL, DMX, etc.). The system features 2 outputs to control 2 cameras (same/different) on one Cy-CI0. It can also be used wirelessly through 433-900MHz/Wifi/3G or serial RF modems.

Future designs include motorization for focus and iris on most C-Mount lenses, control of robo heads through Pelco, DMX, etc., and video over IP with lightweight compression (TICO or VC2) staying compatible with 16bps IP switches.

Cy-VP4

Video Processor

Powered by linear processing and 3D look-up tables (LUTs), the Cy-VP4 video processor allows precise color control including multi-matrix, black gamma, soft knee, white clip and detail.

The Cy-VP4 supports one 4K (25/50/60) camera or four 3G HD (50/60) cameras alongside SDI in/out and HDMI out for monitoring. The video corrector provides all corrections available through the RCP including on a camera with which one has no control (GoPro, camcorder, wireless camera transmitting video only). When combined with other control elements, the Cy-VP4 evolves into a universal CCU. In addition to the traditional primary corrections, secondary corrections give access to higher-level CCU features needed to align cameras of different makes and models.

Connecting the cinema camera world with broadcast operators & workflows, the processing engine will highlight evolution in automatic corrections, log/HDR conversions, color space conversions and cinema look.
