The AK-HRP200 is a compact, lightweight, joystick-type remote operation panel (ROP) that provides precise, rapid, and comprehensive control of the HC3800’s powerful capabilities. Currently, the HRP200 and HCU200 connect via optional serial cables (e.g. ROP-50M) at a distance of up to 50 meters. The free system firmware upgrade available before NAB 2013 will add IP control communication between ROP and HCU, and will also permit the ROP to set-up and control Panasonic PTZ cameras such as the AW-HE120 via IP. Scene files, user files and lens files can be stored on and retrieved from SD-HC memory cards at both the HCU and HRP control panel.
