Exclusively designed for Canon, the cutting-edge controller sets a new standard for versatility in multi-camera productions – from entry-level broadcast, to live events such as musical performances and concerts, or recording lectures in higher education.

By seamlessly integrating Canon XC protocol with a professional quality joystick, Zoom Rocker and dials, the controller allows content creators to give their productions a powerful creative edge.

Operating a seamless, multi-camera workflow is easy with the RC-SK5. The potential to control various PTZ cameras and Canon camcorders via an IP network unlocks new opportunities for dynamic and synchronised content creation.

The high-quality and ergonomically-designed joystick ensures intuitive control, delivering a tactile and responsive link to each connected camera with a new level of accuracy. Smooth wide-to-tele transitions can be effortlessly achieved with the Zoom Rocker, enabling users to monitor everything with precise control, with the additional benefit of 20 control sets.

The ability to connect to other SKAARHOJ products extends the controller’s capabilities by providing access to a broad ecosystem, such as the side panel Frame Shot Pro which offers even more intuitive control with colour images of preset positions.

An additional paid licence opens further features and enables the freedom to integrate the RC-SK5 with various products and devices from different manufacturers, maximising the potential of the existing infrastructure.

The RC-SK5 will be available for purchase from March 2024 for a recommended sales price of 3225 EUR, excluding VAT.
