Lumens has introduced the VC-R30 Full HD IP PTZ camera with VISCA control and a new 1/2.8-inch Sony sensor.

Delivering broadcast quality pictures and a European five year warranty, the VC-R30 aims to set a high standard for cost-effective multi-camera video production.

The VC-R30 marks the arrival of a new generation of PTZ cameras. It offers image quality and video outputs that have not previously been seen in a camera at this price point. Lumens VC-R30 features simultaneous 3G-SDI, HDMI, USB 3.0 and Ethernet video connectors for a high degree of connection and workflow flexibility which is ideal for users in video production, and live events. 

Joris Nevens, General Manager of Lumens Europe, commented: “Increasingly, our customers need cameras that have the flexibility to adapt. The VC-R30 is ready to fit into traditional video workflows, IP-based streaming networks, and interactive communication systems. With the growth in popularity of video production software such as vMix, OBS and Wirecast, VC-R30 supports simultaneous output via Ethernet and USB as well as traditional SDI and HDMI transmission.

The VC-R30 provides excellent image quality in all lighting conditions. The robotic camera movement and 12x optical zoom lens make the camera suitable for positioning anywhere from an auditorium to a small studio. The autofocus system enables the VC-R30 to deliver sharp pictures even when the camera is in motion or when the zoom angle changes.

Covering a wide 72.5° horizontal FoV and with plug and play USB, the camera is a great option for visual radio production. Compliant with most video production, video conference, and streaming applications, including Zoom, and Microsoft Teams, the camera can be positioned upright or inverted to suit your studio, theatre, classroom, courtroom, or house of worship.
