The Panasonic AW-RP50 Sub-Compact Remote Camera Controller unit can control up to one hundred AW-HE50 series cameras via IP and up to five Panasonic cameras and pan-tilt heads using RS-422 serial control. The RP50 is capable of accessing up to 100 presets for each Panasonic Integrated PTZ camera (the AW-HE50 and AW-HE100) and up to 50 presets for other Panasonic AW-series pan-tilt heads.
The half-rack width RP50 has a simple, ergonomic design for easy operation in a wide range of applications - including remote production, sports, education, legislative TV and house of worship use. In addition to easy, precise pan, tilt, zoom, focus, iris, white balance, black balance and shutter adjustments, the RP50 also provides direct setting of detail, R/B gain and R/B pedestal adjustments on many cameras for convenient matching of video output. Camera menu access is also provided for adjustment of other parameters.
The RP50 remote control also connects to the AW-HS50 switcher via IP for synchronized use at a distance or for easy control of both units by a single local operator.

This remote controller is paired with a Panasonic AW-HE120 PTZ HD camera. Unit has small footprint and handles the task well. Allows user to set ten camera position presets to quickly get to a shot. Nice feature is the speed control for pans and tilts. You can control the speed with the joystick by how far one pushes it but it is a great option to set the speed to slow for an elegant pan and not have to worry about holding the joystick in exactly the right spot. Unit appears sturdy and well constructed if not stylish. This unit is located in a control booth in the rear of the balcony of a church and controls a camera at the alter rail. Connect via Cat 5 or 6 with a LAN type connecter on both ends. Camera controls are immediate and responsive even at that distance.
