VDESK Multi-Camera PTZ Production Systems
VDESK Integrated PTZ Production Systems include switcher, effects, transitions and Chroma key, with local encoding and streaming functions. They include 23” touch screens and support 4, 8 or 12 SDI or analog inputs.
VDESK is available in several configurations, and all feature analog/SDI inputs and HDMI/SDI outputs – as well as three unique user interfaces that let you work the way you want, when you want. The VDESK LTD tower model is built for applications where expandability from its 4 inputs isn’t necessary. The VDESK PRO 4 supports expansion from 4 to 8 inputs and is housed in a 4U chassis, while VDESK PRO 8 comes standard with 8 inputs in a 4U chassis.
Use your iPad, Android or Windows tablet to control your VDESK over a wireless (N) network. Run the entire show from anywhere in the room.

REMO Multi-Camera Portable PTZ Production Systems
REMO includes the same software and user interfaces as VDESK, but is designed specifically for users that need lightweight portability for quick setup and strike on location. The two REMO configurations -UBEREMOTE and ISOTOWER - are easily hand-carried from a vehicle to the production site.
REMO UBEREMOTE has four inputs (non-expandable), and includes a 15.6” touch screen. Weighing just 14 pounds, with dimensions of 12” x 17” x 8”, this is perfect for “run and gun” recording and streaming. ISO recording of up to two inputs is also supported. Output is both SDI and HDMI.
REMO ISOTOWER can be configured with four or eight inputs, and also includes a 15.6” or 23” touch screen. At 24 pounds, and dimensions of 16” x 17” x 9”, this powerful system can record all eight inputs (ISO) to separate files - as well as the switched program output - while simultaneously streaming. Output is both SDI and HDMI.
Both units incorporate input cards that support analog and HD/SD-SDI inputs, and interface with most PTZ cameras as well as RUSHWORKS’ PTX Universal PanTilt head. You can also configure an input to accept a streaming signal through the network port.

VDESK/REMO – Multiple User Interfaces
VDESK and REMO come standard with three interfaces: CLASSIC, PRODUCER and TalkingPoints.
The CLASSIC interface supports up to 12 PTZ or PTX cameras, with nine user-defined and named presets per camera panel. The PRODUCER interface is based on a gray scale 3D representation of your production area. Just place picture icons (picons) of people or objects on the “stage”, and touch an icon to TAKE the shot in about one second. It’s truly a unique and “switcherless” production tool.
TalkingPoints is a simple, cost-effective solution for capturing, streaming and displaying all the elements of lectures and other live presentations. Supporting up to three PTZ cameras, it uses HD Picture-in-Picture formatting to display PowerPoint and similar graphics, and two independent windows for the presenter and panelists.
A third camera can be used to capture Q&A audience participation during and after the presentation. Copy your session files to DVDs, USBs, and/or upload for VOD.
TalkingPoints makes every seat in the house a front row seat … with no camera operators required!

PTX Universal Pan/Tilt Head
The multi-award-winning PTX Universal PanTilt head provides a whole new dimension of production functionality, supporting the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K and many LANC-equipped cameras from Sony, Canon, Panasonic and JVC. It’s also great with GoPro and other small HD cameras for enhanced point-of-view coverage.
Because it supports full DMX control, it can be added as a fixture profile in lighting consoles and software, allowing the lighting designer to program scenes which include both lighting and video presets. It opens up a whole new universe of possibilities!
In addition to pan and tilt, the PTX fixture provides control of zoom, focus, iris, and record start/stop if the cameras support the commands.
