Rocosoft USB VISCA Home-Run Control/Power/HD-SDI Video  Multi-Camera Extendable Cable Set

Rocosoft USB Home-Run Control/Power/HD-SDI Video Cable set connects multiple VISCA PTZ cameras to a computer, laptop, NewTek TriCaster, Livestream, vMax Go, Telestream Wirecast and all other Live Production systems by utilizing just one USB Port on the system.

The Multiplexer creates individual Virtual COM Port for each camera so the cameras of different brands can be mixed or matched. The Multiplexer utilizes only one USB port on the system - it greatly simplifies connection of multiple cameras to the Live Production systems (like TriCaster) where some USB port connectors and some COM port numbers unavailable when the main system loads.

The main image shows an example of the 3 camera configuration. These sets can be built for 2, 3, 4, 8, 16 cameras (not shown).

  • Each camera connects to the Multiplexer Unit with a single network cable
  • Can be extended with any standard CAT6 ethernet network patch cable
  • Creates multiple COM ports (one for each camera) on the computer, accessable by any PTZ camera control software.
