Color Fly - RCP to rule them all

Color Fly is your uncompromising multi camera RCP bringing you innovative iris control with motorized faders. You get the tactile position feedback of the classic iris joystick but can easily manage 4,8 or 12 cameras from the same compact panel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Programmable four-way buttons with OLED legends and tally bars

Note for SKAARHOJ controllers with Blackmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shields and Studio Fiber Converter/Camera Fiber Converter:

We have tested Blackmagics fiber converter products in general to work with SDI output. This includes the Mini Converter, ATEM Camera Converter, ATEM Studio Converter and ATEM Talkback Converter 4K. The only product we know does not work is the Studio Fiber Converter/Camera Fiber Converter. This product is not compatible with their own 3G-SDI shield which is the component we use inside the RCPs and other products. While the Studio Fiber Converter/Camera Fiber Converter will forward shading data from an ATEM switcher it will not do so for the 3G-SDI shield.

Bottom line is this: We cannot change this situation, only Blackmagic Design can decide to upgrade either the Studio Fiber Converter/Camera Fiber Converter or the 3G-SDI Arduino Shield to make it work. At this point we can suggest that you rather connects a controller to an ATEM switcher which will work as the master for sending out the shading data. You might employ a cheap ATEM switcher for only this purpose.

Embedding CCU data on the the 3G-SDI return feed

For controllers with the SDI option, you find a 3G-SDI in and out BNC plug. Route the return feed to the camera through this connection to insert CCU data on the signal.

If you use the Blacmagic 3G-SDI Arduino Shield for camera control the following outputs are supported: 720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60, 1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60, 1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 1080p50, 1080p59.94 and 1080p60, but the camera doesn´t have to be running the same video format as the program input, so you can use cameras in Ultra HD while the camera protocol is sent over HD signal to the camera.

BMD Camera Support

SKAARHOJ units with the SDI option controls any Blackmagic camera that supports CCU over the return SDI feed. The CCU data is inserted on the SDI return feed.
