Video Control Station

The Video Control Station (VCS), currently only compatible with DeltaQuad Pro #VIEW using Surveillance Package 3, is a Windows based 14 inch Thinkpad laptop running Windows 10 and the CCA3 software that is specifically designed to  display and control the Nextvision2 gimbal.

Attached to the VCS is a camera control joystick with programmable function keys. The joystick controls the Pan and Tilt axis and the buttons on top of the joystick control zoom levels. The function keys control deploy/retract, switching between Thermal and RGB video, and the ‘fire’ button allows locking on targets to track automatically.

From the VCS the mouse pad can be used to click on any object in the video for automatic tracking. Object tracking is available in both RGB and Thermal vision.
