Vicon Industries Inc. offers a new system controller that offers compatibility with traditional Pilot matrix switching systems and ViconNet digital video management systems. It may also be used with ViconNet’s Virtual Matrix Controller that simulates the operation of a crosspoint matrix system.
The attractive, new V1500X-SCCS controller, housed in a modern silver enclosure, features a touch-sensitive LCD screen that provides control of the various systems through the use of changing menus that vary by mode. A joystick, jog/shuttle wheel, and traditional keypad work in tandem with the touchscreen, providing the user with an experience that is intuitive and natural, and makes operation easy to master. The unit provides the ability to select cameras, monitors, presets, tours, and salvos and to control standard PTZ, lens, auxillary relay, lens speed, auto-pan, and auto-iris functions. Up to 8 macros can be set and recalled, each featuring up to 32 steps.
