The Broadcast Pix software can control up 9 cameras directly from the 2 M/E control panel. It uses the joystick to pan/tilt/zoom and knobs in the Device Control to adjust focus, iris and other settings. There are a total of 6 presets per Sony camera. Each camera, preset and menu settings appear directly on the PixButtons of the PixPad, as shown below, for ease of use and greater control. A typical installation for the Sony VISCA cameras uses an RS-232C daisy chain configuration, see below for example. Where a DB 9-pin to Mini Din 8-pin VISCA cable is used to connect the first camera to the workstation’s communications port ( COM 1 or COM 2) and the other cameras being looped through each other with a Mini Din 8-pin to Mini Din 8-pin VISCA cable through the VISCA In/Out ports. There is a maximum length of 15 meters (50 feet) when using an RS-232C configuration. A 10 foot test cable is included with the system when this option is purchased.
