At IBC, AJA announced the new RovoRx-SDI HDBaseT receiver and updated RovoControl v2.0 software.

RovoRx-SDI is a companion receiver for RovoCam with four integrated 6G/3G-SDI outputs and HDMI for UltraHD/HD support. RovoControl v2.0 adds multicam setup and control and several workflow enhancements to the RovoCam HDBaseT compact block camera ecosystem.

Capable of UltraHD, RovoCam is integrated with an HDBaseT interface, and supports uncompressed video, audio, control and power over a single CAT 5e/6 cable at lengths of up to 100 metres. The new RovoControl update offers upgraded multicamera control for RovoCam, and new presets and features for more productive workflows in ProAV, industrial, corporate, security and traditional broadcast environments.

RovoControl v2.0 is compatible with Mac and Windows and is a free software that allows users to control both RovoCam from companion HDBaseT products in the RovoCam ecosystem, including RovoRx-SDI, RovoRx-HDMI and Corvid HB-R.

AJA says the key features include:

–Easier multicamera setup and control for up to eight RovoCams
–Preset control for simple recall and the ability to share presets between RovoCams including ePTZ settings
–Greater color and white balance control for users, improving the ability to match other cameras
–Improved auto and manual spot focus options, offering better focus for off center subjects
–New low-delay mode improves latency and removes image stabilization while in use
–Gamma detail and visibility enhancer settings added to UI
–Improved UART/RS-232 support on third-party RS-232 adapters

“RovoCam’s simple installation, features, small footprint and incredible level of control and image quality have generated a ton of enthusiasm from customers across many markets,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “Unique workflow options enabled by the RovoControl update and RovoRx-SDI open up new opportunities for high-quality 4K image capture that previously may not have been possible due to space or crew limitations.”
