The CamCtrl is our latest innovation and is based on the Lanc Ctrl which is now replaced by the CamCtrl. Among other things the CamCtrl can handle now the new multi-protocol and has also a data bus interface to the Navi Ctrl.
supports now both SONY protocols
starts ansd stops videos – triggers photos
zoom function ( also the photo camera )
Camera will be switched on automatically, while the camera was in sleep-mode
it prevents the camera to go into the sleep-mode
If the camera supports analog video it can be tapped via a 3-pin Molex output directly to the video transmitter.
You can connect an external status LED
Furthermore you can connect the CamCtrl Interface via I2C-bus to the NC and read the status. In this way you can display at the transmitter i.e.:
recording in progress
zoom is active
camera took xxx photos – camera is „on“ or „off“ (i.e. Battery is empty)
camera is in „photo mode“ and can not record videos right now
cable to the camera is not plugged in. Appropriate information you can find in the Wiki.
