The Sony DXC-C33 is a 3-chip color video camera with Firewire connectivity for limited space applications. It uses 3x 1/3-inch CCDs that output an amazing 850 lines of resolution and are sensitive for f/8 at 2000 lux. A powerful digital signal processor allows great image quality with DynaLatitude and Partial Enhance, special features usually found on high-end broadcast gear. The camera is made up of 2 pieces: the camera head that takes C-mount lenses, and the camera control unit, a control box that gives access to the various video parameters the DSP governs and the on-screen menu system. The 2 pieces are connected by a flexible cable (sold separately) that can be as long as about 90 feet (30 meters).
Note: Lens and connecting cable not included
- Internet and Medical Applications
- The camera head is very small and can go where typical video devices simply could never fit. Without lens, the camera head is a cube about 1.5 inches each side. The DXC-C33 is almost unique because the CCU offers iLINK, the Sony version of Firewire. This digital connection gives degradation-free recording on VTRs with the Firewire connection. Additional outputs include composite video, S-video, and RGB. Local Area Networks and web streaming software can also use Firewire connections.
- Approved For Medical Use
- The DXC-C33 is UL-2601 approved that makes it usable in medical offices and operating rooms. The vast list of features and custom detail abilities make the camera an excellent choice for microscopy and other research applications.
- RS-232C Control
- The camera can be controlled by an computer system with RS-232C software. This allows control and changes to picture-look parameters from anywhere, even over the internet.
