Broadcast RF’s own design lightweight camera back can be docked onto various Thomson Grass Valley LDK camera bodies, specifically the LDK6000 and 8000/Elite models.

Our camera back houses a camera control receiver for use with the new Gigawave OCP5 wireless paint system (supplied as standard) and provides HD SDI and Composite outputs to a range of HD transmitters which are attached using the IDX V-Loc battery mount. This makes for a very light and well balanced wireless camera system.

Broadcast RF’s own design lightweight transmitter mount can be fixed onto various Sony HDC style camera bodies, specifically the HDC1500, 1500R and 2500 models.

Our mount houses a camera control receiver for use with the new Videosys manufacturers based wireless paint system. Two IDX V-Loc battery plates, one on the top and one on the back, are provided allowing various options for TX and battery mounting ensuring the camera system stays well balanced.

The mount can also be used independently of the video transmitter making it ideal for events such as golf where a pole mounted transmitter is preferred but camera control is still required.

The system comes complete with your choice of Link, Gigawave or Cobham video transmission systems as well all batteries and accessories 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.
