Canon CR-series PTZ Control - Part 1

What to expect

SKAARHOJ's universal controllers offers you unseen flexibility in form factor and price without compromising on your control options. The same software system, Reactor, is used for any controller.

Tactile control matters in many visual live production environments where eyes must be fixed on a screen or stage while fingers must be able to feel their way to controls. SKAARHOJ controllers are all about that. No touch screens - you can feel the right key under your finger tips.

Adding cameras to your SKAARHOJ controller is super easy. The controller will search the network for cameras and show a list. From there it's literally just a click of a button in the Web UI of the controller.

Tally colors for the camera selector can be picked up from external systems via TSL or direct connection to switchers and routers.

Technical Notes

SKAARHOJ controllers use the new XC protocol from Canon to control the cameras. This means the controllers are ready to add even more functionality in the future.


With dedicated buttons and knobs for all settings and actions, it's easy and quick to use.

You will enjoy all the same benefits as found on PTZ Fly, while having a larger hand rest and faster, direct access.
