The Vaddio WallVIEW CCU HD-19 HD-SDI PTZ Camera (Arctic White) with QuickConnect CCU pairs a pan/tilt/zoom camera with a camera control unit (CCU) that provides power and control to the camera over two Cat-5e cables that can run up to 500'. The CCU can control remotely the PTZ camera's settings to adjust brightness, color, white balance, and more.
The HD-19 is a pan/tilt/zoom camera with a motorized 19x optical zoom lens, a 1.3 Megapixel 1/3-type Sony Exmor CMOS sensor, and a slip-clutch robotics system, all for capturing clear, high-definition images with precise, wide-ranging movements.
The lens captures wide (58.1°) for small rooms as well as tight (3.2°) for long distances in larger rooms. With a powerful imaging system and pan/tilt/zoom robotics, the HD-19 is perfect for videoconferencing, distance learning, and live-event recording in houses of worship and other venues.
The HD-19 features a 1/3-type low-noise, high-speed CMOS sensor that boasts a large pixel aperture size. The imager offers high signal to noise, and very low minimum illumination of only 0.7 lux. The camera's integrated SmartSHOT technology with adjustable image processing (AIP) means that the user can control the advanced digital signal processing (DSP) functions of the camera, which in turn results in an extremely crisp, detailed image with vibrant color. These technical details pay real dividends in terms of image quality – especially in low-light conditions.
The camera features a card slot that supplies dual HD-SDI outputs that are capable of single-link 3 Gb/s transfer of HD video, to support formats up to 1080p60. There are also simultaneous HD analog component (YPbPr) and SD analog composite (CVBS at NTSC) outputs so you can monitor the camera locally on any monitor as the camera delivers high-quality HD video (1080p, 1080i, and 720p are selectable) to the rest of the video system, be it a videoconference codec or a broadcast switcher.
The camera can be installed up to 500' away from the Quick-Connect CCU, which sends power and RS-232 control information via two Cat-5e cables.
The CCU can adjust various camera settings to achieve an optimal image in even the most difficult environment. Adjust Detail (sharpen/soften objects & text), Red & Blue Gain, Auto White Balance, Pedestal (absolute black), Knee (for accurate reproduction of bright objects that are easily overexposed), Iris (light intake – either auto or manual), Gain (boost the signal level), Chroma (color), and Gamma (overall brightness). Using these parameter settings, you can store up to three camera adjustment scenes (A, B & C) in the CCU's memory.
