ParkerVision's PVTV Automates Production Tasks

ParkerVision's latest PVTV LEARNING CR500 system is based on the same patented automation technology currently in use at many TV stations in both large and small markets, and represents the leading edge of live media production technology. PVTV gives a production staff of as few as one the ability to control a number of components, including cameras, video switchers, audio mixers, character generators, tape machines and video servers with precision to facilitate a live broadcast such as a classroom lecture.

PVTV LEARNING can be used as part of a school's distance education program, acting as the production control center for routing the audio and video students see and hear in remote classrooms. PVTV LEARNING can also be used to handle all production tasks in a live-broadcast education environment such as a journalism or video production school.

PVTV LEARNING systems are priced starting at $149,995 and include two robotic CameraMan cameras, a camera controller, an integrated video switcher, a 3-D DVE, a special effects engine, an audio mixer and a machine control interface. For more information, visit
