What will you learn

You will learn how to operate, set-up and adjust the look of the HDC-4000 series 4K digital camera system, through any RCP-1000 series remote control panel or MSU-1000 master setup unit. At the conclusion of the course the delegate will be able to set the camera to the required look using camera menus, RCP/MSU control and files as appropriate.

Who should attend

This course is designed for those with a good knowledge of television engineering and production processes with some knowledge or experience of cameras, wishing to operate vision control of an HDC-4000 series camera channel. If required this course can be run as a half-day course so that two groups of staff can be trained in one day. This is achieved by focussing on the most important parts of the training and omitting aspects such as the camera menu operation.

Course contents

An overview of the system

If required, an introduction to 4K and Ultra HD can be included for those delegates unfamiliar with these new formats.

This part of the course also describes the interconnection of the camera system, the different options and configurations.

Camera operation

A comprehensive explanation of the HDC-4000 series cameras is not covered in this course. The HDC-4000 Series Operation course covers this. However for those vision controllers wanting to gain a basic understanding of HDC-4000 series camera operation a brief guide is provided here.

RCP operation

A comprehensive description of RCP operation and menus and how they are used for both engineering adjustment and aesthetic control is covered in this section.

MSU Operation

The MSU is used to both adjust the look of the picture and configure the system. Much of the control is similar to RCP control so this section focuses on the difference in menu structure and those facilities not available from the RCP.
