New Integration Announced for Cine RT, VLC-3

Distance data from the Focusbug Cine RT system can now be shown in the display of the YMER-3 handset, and the Aux button on the YMER-3 handset can activate focus tracking based on the distance data.

Hedén Group, PLC Electronics Solutions and Focusbug Technologies have launched an integration that connects the Cine RT base sensor to the VLC-3 receiver.

With it, the distance data from the Focusbug Cine RT system can be shown in the display of the YMER-3 handset, and the Aux button on the YMER-3 handset can be used to activate focus tracking based on the distance data. The Cine RT link cable connects the r/s port of the VLC-3 receiver to the serial port of the Cine RT base sensor. The cable has pass-through for the r/s function so users can connect an r/s cable to the camera and the Cine RT simultaneously.

“We developed the integration to address customers’ demand for measuring distance,” says Jonas Andersson, CEO of Hedén Group. “To have the data from the Cine RT system integrated with our YMER-3 system is a really great addition to the system. Users can also combine the cable with our Cine RT sensor pan bracket and mount and pan the horns with any of our motors.”

The Cine RT integration is compatible with YMER-3 with the latest firmware. To update the firmware, users should email requests with the serial number of the receiver and handset to [email protected]. A cable to update the receiver is included in the YMER-3 system, and the supplied USB key can be used to update the handset. A Windows PC will be needed for the update.
