CyanView shows innovations at IBC

At IBC 2019, CyanView showcased new additions to its range of camera control systems. “Of the many requests we receive for camera control, one of the most frequent is to be able to locate a camera in a car, on a motorbike, on board a helicopter or on a drone,” says David Bourgeois, founder and CEO of CyanView.


CyanView’s response to those requests is the new Cy-Ri0. Based on the Cy-Ci0, and delivering the same functionality, it now offers the option of control via 4G. Cy-Ri0 has the ability to control any camera over any communication channel including, for example, IP (cabled or Wi-Fi).


“We demonstrated the Cy-Ri0 at NAB,” Bourgeois adds. “A camera was located in Paris - almost 9,000 kilometres away - but we controlled it via 4G, with a latency of less than 200 milliseconds. If the latency had been unacceptable, we could have combined the Cy-Ci0 with the Cy-VP4 to mitigate it.” CyanView showed their remote camera control via 4G at IBC as well.


“The architecture we developed for the Cy-Ri0 provides simplification for remote productions,” Bourgeois concludes. “Camera control protocols are all handled by the Cy-Ci0 unit itself: all data communications with the cameras and other accessories are handled locally, without latency or bandwidth constraints.”


Also shown at IBC for the first time was the new Cy-GWY-IO. A smaller version of CyanView’s Cy-GWY gateway, it includes 16 x GPI for tally and touchdown, and enables an unlimited number of cameras to be connected. The Cy-GWY-IO provides a cost-effective solution for budget productions using the EVA1-Live or small standalone setups, such as a pair of goal cameras.


The range of mini cameras that can benefit from its Cy-Stem control system now includes units from Blackmagic, CIS, Dream Chip, IOI, Marshall and Toshiba, as well as PTZ cameras from Lumens, Marshall, Panasonic and Sony.
