The ARC-UHD: The Toughest 4K PTZ On The Market

When MRMC acquired Agile Remote Cameras (ARC), we knew we were acquiring a different camera from anything else on the market. We spent some time refining this camera, improving its design and reliability, integrating Mark Roberts Motion Control, allowing it to be operated from our award-winning software solutions, and adding the option for FreeD.

Meet the ARC-UHD

In 2023, we announced the next member of this family, the ARC-UHD. Learning from the ARC-360 and listening to customer feedback, the ARC-UHD is designed to be even tougher than its predecessor. The ARC-UHD is a fully ingress-protected (IP) rated camera with an integrated wiper solution, designed for all outdoor applications.

Beta testing saw it installed in stadiums across Europe, and it is now in use in various sports worldwide, as well as available for rental directly from MRMC and our partners.

Featuring a best-in-class sensor and MRMC’s excellence in repeatable motion, the ARC-UHD offers performance unmatched by any other camera on the market. Positional data is outputted as FreeD, but other protocols are supported upon request, making it ideal for integration in live sports workflows with positional data for on-pitch or court graphics.

Easy To Integrate

The ARC-UHD also utilises the popular MRP (Mark Roberts Protocol), making it easy to integrate into workflows already using this format. MRP is also available for others to access, as well as an API for this camera, should you want to develop control for a variety of different applications.

With a 1/1.8” sensor and support for up to 50p and 60p, as well as a range of other resolutions and frame rates, the ARC-UHD supports High Dynamic Range (HDR) workflows. With built-in genlock, it is the perfect camera for live sports and events and can be deployed in the harshest and most challenging environments. It also has excellent image quality, making it suitable for reality TV, fly-on-the-wall series, or studio applications.
