Sony HDC-P1 lightweight RF system

This ultra light and flexible radio camera system is specially designed for Steadicam use. At the centre of the system is a Broadcast RF designed flexible mounting system which provides the framework to mount various HD video transmitters, antennas and our manufacturers based camera control system. The mount provides the operator all the adjustment needed to balance the steadicam rig perfectly whilst keeping weight and size to a minimum.

Various accessories can also be mounted including teleprompt monitors and return video systems.

Broadcast RF are able to offer the system with your choice of video transmitters although we recommend the lightweight Link L1370 XPu-HD or Cobham Solo H.264 HD transmitters. The system can also be provided complete with our own Sony HDC P1 camera head. All batteries and accessories are supplied as required.

Also included is our new manufacturers based camera control system from Videosys and a Sony RCP1500 control panel to compliment. This award winning UHF based wireless paint system allows up to 4 camera systems to share a single UHF channel helping maintain a low impact on spectrum use whilst still providing all the familiarity of Sony control.
