PRLog - Aug. 23, 2012 - MINNEAPOLIS -- Vaddio, the world leader in robotic PTZ cameras and specialty camera control systems, has once again revolutionized camera control for the classroom with the newly redesigned Hot-Shot Camera Controller. By adding control for Vaddio’s ClearVIEW HD-Series PTZ cameras, the Hot-Shot now meets both the technical and affordable requirements today’s higher education professionals demand.
“As the leader in camera control systems for education, we were given the challenge to provide a simple-to-use, low-cost single camera control system that could be deployed in not just one, but all classrooms equipped with lecture capture systems,” explains CEO of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. “The Hot-Shot Camera Controller provides completely automated preset camera control for less than $1,000. Now schools can afford to have camera control in every classroom across campus.”
The Hot-Shot can control any of the Vaddio ClearVIEW HD-Series of PTZ Cameras and will support up to 16 presets. It’s used in conjunction with Vaddio’s preset trigger devices including the MicVIEW Mic Mixer/Switcher, StepVIEW Mats, AutoVIEW IR sensors, PresenterPOD and TouchVIEW. Triggering one of these devices will automatically send commands through the Hot-Shot to move the camera to a specified preset (wide-shot, lectern, whiteboard, etc.) When used with Vaddio ClearVIEW HD-Series cameras, setting a trigger also stores a preset inside the camera, creating a true low-cost single-camera lecture capture solution.
