The Sony RM-IP500 – easy, ergonomic PTZ control of multiple remote cameras for live events production and contents creation

This compact remote controller features a high-quality joystick that allows effortless one-handed pan, tilt and zoom adjustments of compatible Sony PTZ remote cameras. Zoom can also be controlled via the joystick or a supplementary seesaw lever; dedicated knobs and control buttons simplify direct access to frequently-needed camera functions.

The Sony RM-IP500 simplifies the building of cost-effective multi-camera content creation systems with a wide range of applications – from live events to conference halls, broadcast studios, education institutes and houses of worship.

PTZ speed can be adjusted from slow to fast for more polished, professional-looking results. Up to 100*¹ combinations of camera angles and settings can be stored as presets. Trace Memory*¹ allows a sequence of camera moves to be stored and recalled whenever required.

Up to 100 compatible Sony BRC/SRG Series and ILME-FR7 PTZ remote cameras can be controlled over a standard IP network. Set-up’s simple: the controller automatically assigns IP addresses to connected Sony PTZ cameras on the network, also assigning a camera number to each.
