    Control connected cameras thanks to 42 buttons and 14 dials that control functions such as Iris, Gamma, Knee and white balance. Backlit LEDs help general visibility while the professional zoom rocker ensures pinpoint accuracy when adjusting the zoom.


    IP Video and Input Monitoring

    Monitor and control Canon camera feeds quickly and easily on the 7-inch touchscreen via IP with up to nine being viewable at once in various layout options. Whatever camera is chosen, the touchscreen will automatically switch to show that live feed. Alternatively, output one full-screen feed to an external monitor via the 12G-SDI or HDMI port.

    Easy set up without a PC

    Use the RC-IP1000’s camera search function to find and register new cameras via the LAN. RC-IP1000 can change all system settings of up to 200 connected cameras such as IP address, ID, and password. It can also perform initial setup of camera and controller without a PC.


    Multi-camera control made easy

    Group all cameras together or up to ten in one group. Implement presets for multiple PTZ cameras at once as well as control others from Canon’s PTZ and Cinema EOS1 ranges, plus the XF605 Pro Camcorder.

    Intuitive touchscreen

    Access a wide range of settings via the touchscreen. Set Focus Points and settings within touch AF, Face and Eye detection; control Manual Focus Point and adjust crop areas to enable two feeds to be sent out from one camera2.


    Professional inputs and connections

    Incorporate the RC-IP1000 into existing infrastructures or use remotely thanks to a wide range of inputs including DC 12V XLR port, five Serial RJ45 ports, LAN/POE+, USB, HDMI Out, 12G-SDI in/out and two GPIO D-Sub 25pin channels. By using the GPIO/SDI connection with a video switcher, the selection of camera on RC-IP1000 can perfectly link with the selection of camera on video switcher automatically.

    Advanced Pre-Set and Trace control

    Control another camera during a trace and set your other camera positions without having to wait until the trace/pre-set is finished. Register and manage presets and traces by naming them via the touchscreen and use the physical button on the RC-IP1000 for quick access to the pre-set and trace.
