Intuitive Interface

AW-RP150 Control Panel

Rear View & Newly Designed Joystick

AW-RP150 Rear View & Joystick

Touchscreen Interface

The touch panel GUI monitor supports camera image display during shooting as well as a variety of operations. The panel is equipped only with buttons that are frequently used, with menu and camera switching operations, indicators and other functions consolidated in the touch panel GUI.

Equipped with Touch Focus

The focus is quickly aligned to the area touched by tapping the screen. In addition, the Focus in Red display assists with aligning focus by framing the part that is in-focus in red. 

Simplified Multi-Camera Deployment

Scene files, system settings files and other camera settings can be saved on the AW-RP150GJ SD card. These settings can then be copied to multiple cameras via the SD card. This massively reduces on-location setup time when shooting at events with large numbers of cameras. 

IP connection via a switching hub can be used to control up to 200 remote cameras. Up to 5 remote cameras can be controlled in a serial connection.

4K Crop - Multiple HD Sources

The cropping function loaded on the AW-UE150 can be controlled from the AW-RP150. Images output from the AW-UE150 to the monitor can be cropped in three different locations displayed with colored frames (yellow/ green/magenta), and fine-tuned with the joystick as you watch. Required images can be cropped precisely and simply.

Preset Memory for Simple Camera Control

Registration of the camera angle and other remote camera settings allows them to be easily recalled from the touch panel GUI monitor. The movement speed for playback of the preset memory can be set by the specified speed or time.

Supported Presets

  • Pan & Tilt Position
  • Focus Position
  • White Balance Settings
  • Crop Position Coordinates
  • Zoom Position
  • Lens Aperture (manual iris only)
  • Gain

Camera Tracing Memory

The tracing memory function records a series of operation performed for the remote camera. Up to 5 minutes for 10 operations can be memorized for a single camera, and that trajectory can then be reproduced.

Supported Presets

  • Pan & Tilt Position
  • Focus Position
  • White Balance Settings
  • Zoom Position
  • Lens Aperture (manual iris only)
  • Gain

Moves Like Jagger

Remote camera pan, tilt, and zoom control have been integrated into a single joystick on the AW-RP150, allowing for some of the smoothest moves possible. Simultaneously zoom in/out as you frame up a live shot.
