HYBRID Line as Assistant Director

At the beginning of this year's season, the open-air theatre 'Theatersommer Ludwigsburg' in the centre of Ludwigsburg has started to use 2 cameras of the HYBRID Line. They used it to assist the director and technicians rather than to spy on the audience.

Due to a limited view (see image B1) from the director's desk / service room onto the large stage of the open-air theatre, an old analogue video camera with a low resolution has previously been used for stage surveillance. Merely, the transmission latency and long signal paths have prevented the purchase of a new camera with up-to-date technology. Jörg Stude, technician in charge of the 'Theatersommer' stated: "With the surveillance system AXZ-204BV from MONACOR, we have found an ideal system which meets every requirement" and continued: "They provided excellent support and expert advice, the camera AXC-2812BV for outdoor applications (image B2) features a robust workmanship and a good connection to our network for remote surveillance. It provides a perfectly reliable full HD image transmission via hybrid cable as well as a manual camera zoom and focussing." (Image B3).

Unfortunately, the follow-up model AXC-2812BVM was not available until a few months after installation of the camera. It would have made the director's job even easier due to a motorised zoom lens.
