The VTC1 Video Transport Controller from JLCooper allows you to control file based recorders such as the Black Magic Hyperdeck, AJA Ki Pro, Sound Devices Pix 260, FFV Micron, DataVideo, Sony, and more. It provides remote control of standard transport functions like play forward, play reverse, still, stop, rewind, and fast forward. The controller automatically configures itself to provide clip browsing on Ki Pro, Micron, DataVideo, Sony, and other decks that support this feature, thus providing a shortcut to quickly skip 10 seconds forward or back in time.
The VTC1 is a low power controller that can typically be powered from the RS-422 port of the device. If an external power supply is needed, the optional JLCooper PSDC117 (North America/Japan) or PSDC230 (Europe) are recommended. Alternately, you can use a power supply rated for 9-12VDC at 100mA or greater. The VTC1 also features an all metal construction and professional transport buttons. It connects easily using the included 9.8' cable with 9-pin / RS-422 connectors.
