Camera Control

Integrated Robotic Camera Control

Camera Control Supported Cameras

Add optional camera control to any Broadcast Pix integrated production switcher and experience total command of leading professional broadcast robotic cameras. Operators can control up to 9 or more robotic cameras directly from either a Broadcast Pix control panel or Fluent View multi-view. Camera control integration is so simple that even a single user can act as their own camera operator even during live productions.

Control Panel Control

The control panel's patented PixButtons can control preset positions, while displaying the name of each preset position. PixButtons can also be used to set the speed and movement range of camera panning and tilting. Utilize the panel's 3D joystick and knobs to manually control almost every aspect of your selected camera including; pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris and white balance.

Fluent-View Control

The multi-view display, that already shows all your video outputs and inputs, also displays thumbnails of each camera preset position. These thumbnails views provide quick and error free camera selections that cannot be achieved even with expensive dedicated camera controllers. In addition, the operator has course and fine adjustment with variable acceleration for creating the perfect shot.

Fluent Macros

The Fluent Macros process of streamlining a series of switcher moves into one simple step, can further simplify Broadcast Pix camera control. Easily incorporate camera moves with Broadcast Pix Fluent Macros and automate your next production.
