IP enabled next generation Camera Control Unit

Where to buy

Overview

Add IP production capabilities to system cameras
The HDCU-3100 camera control unit adds IP capabilities to our full range of broadcast and studio system cameras, from the flagship 4K HDC-4300 to the HDC-2000/1700 series and HSC fibre system cameras.

Connecting to compatible cameras via optical fibre cable, the compact HDCU-3100 supplies power to the camera, performs signal processing and provides an interface with external equipment.

Combined with the HKCU-SFP30 option board, designed for the SMPTE ST 2110 Professional Media Over Managed IP Network suite of standards, the HDCU-3100 camera control unit supports essential functionalities required for live IP production including tally, intercom and return.

By installing the optional 4K/HDR Processor Board HKCU-UHD30, the HDCU-3100 can output 4K signals when connected with an HDC-Series System Camera. In addition, adding the optional 12G-SDI Interface Kit HKCU-SDI30 allows transfer of 4K signals through a single BNC cable.

Features

Compact and versatile
The 1.5 RU-size Camera Control Unit creates a standardised 19-inch rack system that is ideal for space-limited production areas.
IP functionality for live production
The optional HKCU-SFP30 interface kit adds essential functionality required for IP live production such as Tally, Intercom and Return.
Eight built-in SDI outputs
The HDCU-3100 is equipped with eight built-in SDI outputs, including four 3G-SDI outputs. A built-in USB connector slot and support of 12G-SDI will both be available in future updates.
4K output option
By installing an optional 4K/HDR Processor Board HKCU-UHD30, the HDCU-3100 can output 4K signals when connected to an HDC-Series System Camera. In addition the HDCU-3100 with an optional 12G-SDI Interface Kit HKCU-SDI30 can transfer 4K signals through a single BNC cable.
High quality long distance signal transmission
The optical fibre transmission system maintains high picture quality across cable runs of up to 2000 m. Combined with the HKCU-SM30 interface kit, the compact HDCU-3100 can be directly connected on Single Mode Fibre (SMF) for long distance transmission up to 10Km, making it ideal for space-limited operations like OB Trucks.
