From Vaddio comes the 998-1105-027, a Universal CCU that works with the HD-20 and HD-18 PTZ cameras, which have very similar control protocols and share the same control keypad. The Universal CCU will automatically sense the camera it is and initialize the firmware for that camera. The universal CCU supports all the resolutions of the HD-20, HD-19 and HD-18 PTZ cameras.

998-1105-027 Front Panel Controls:

  • 5-Line Blue Back-lit LED: Displays up to 8 parameters at a time so the interrelationship of the controls can easily and quickly be read and understood.
  • Tally Light: A contact closure on the back panel lights the blue LED on front panel indicating which Universal CCU and camera combination is the live Program in a multi-camera CCU installation. A tally command will also be sent to the camera via RS-232 to light the LED on cameras with on-board tally lights (Vaddio HD Series cameras).

998-1105-027 Keypad Controls:

  • Touch the button with the parameter to be controlled and adjust the value with the encoder (big rotary knob), then touch the cancel button to exit.
  • Scenes A, B & C: Three camera adjustment scenes (A, B & C) can be stored into microprocessor memory. When lit (backlit blue SPDT switch), the scene is activated. To store a scene, the user adjusts the controls and touches and holds the scene button down until the button blinks. To erase a scene press and hold the scene button and the cancel button.
  • Auto White Balance: The Automatic White Balance controls/adjusts the color levels automatically when engaged. Take it out of Auto to manually adjust the Red and Blue levels.
  • Knee: Knee adjustment allows bright objects that are easily overexposed to be reproduced more accurately.
  • Red & Blue Gain Controls: The Red and Blue Gain buttons in combination with the encoder adjust the red and blue gain of the signal when Auto white Balance is disengaged.
  • Chroma: Chroma controls the overall color of the image being captured.
  • Pedestal: The Pedestal adjustment controls the absolute black level of an image.
  • Gamma: Gamma adjusts the overall brightness of an image.
  • Detail: The Detail control sharpens or softens objects in the frame. Works well when looking at text.
  • IRIS - Auto or Manual: The Auto Iris mode automatically adjusts the iris and gain of the camera. To manually adjust the iris or gain, turn off this control. The Manual Iris control allows the user to set the iris manually to one of the several settings available.
  • Gain: The Gain control boosts the signal level when the iris is open all the way, and there is not enough lighting available. To manually adjust the Gain, Auto Iris must be off. Generally, try to avoid use of the Gain control.
  • Rotary Encoder: Use the encoder to adjust values after the button is selected. This makes for very quick changes.
  • The Menu Buttons: There are other screens to be accessed other than the camera control screen. Use the SELECT and CANCEL to enter other controls and exit other menus.

998-1105-027 Rear Panel Controls:

  • Tally on 2-pin Molex 5.0mm Euro-Style connector: A contact closure lights the blue LED on front panel showing which Universal CCU and camera combination is the live Program in a multi-camera CCU installation. A tally command will also be sent to the camera via RS-232 to illuminate the LED on the cameras that have on-board tally lights.
  • Camera Feature Switches: The CCU interface has an 8-position dip switch on the rear panel to allow for certain functionality. All switches should be in the down position for default.
