a screen big enough to use as a video monitor while being small
enough to be hand-held, this small, light-weight remote controller
unit easily supports most functions of the Phantom digital high-speed
Available in wired and wireless*
models, the RCU is capable of managing the entire imaging workflow:
from setting up the camera, triggering the shot, viewing the cine
on the LCD screen, trimming to the frames of interest, and saving
the result to a CineMag, without ever having to touch the camera.
All this, as well as providing a video monitor, in one package.
*Note: The wireless
model does not provide a video display on the RCU.
The RCU's ergonomic design and low weight (740 gm) allows the user
to hold the unit in one hand while using the other hand to manipulate
As an alternative to being hand-held, the unit can be set on any
horizontal surface or mounted to any available mounting point using
the 1/4-20 tap at the bottom of the unit.
The sensitive 13 cm (5") touch screen provides complete control
of the unit with just a tap of the finger. The scroll/jog dial allows
for very fast change of settings or to delete through a recorded
The packaged RCU connects to Phantom v-Series cameras through
a Break-out-Box (see below) and connecting the RCU is simply a
matter of attaching it to the Breakout-Box (or camera**)
and powering up. Within a few seconds, the camera is ready to
be set up and controlled via a menu on the home screen. The optional
industrial Bluetooth connectivity provides the freedom to control
the camera wirelessly, although a wired monitor on which to review
shots would most likely be needed.
**In both the Phantom HD or 65 models the RCU
connects directly to the remote port on the camera so there is
no need for the breakout box.
The RCU obtains its power and a video signal
from the camera or it can be powered by battery, (required
if the unit is wanted to set up several cameras without needing
to restart the control unit each time; or if a wireless model
is being used).
