Small, light-weight and hand-held... a 13 cm life saver!
With a screen big enough to use as
a video monitor while being small enough to be
truly hand-held, this small, light-weight remote controller
unit easily supports most functions of the Phantom
digital high-speed camera series.
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.
is the Phantom Remote Control Unit so useful?
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 the settings.
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 cine.
The packaged RCU connects to Phantom v-Series
cameras through a Break-out-Box.
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 setup
and controlled. via a menu on the home screen.
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).
**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 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
