High-Quality HDTV/SDTV Video Images
The camera has a single 1/3" CMOS imaging sensor with 2.1 Mp resolution. Utilizing a Canon 20x HD Zoom Lens it captures high-quality images in Full HDTV format. Dynamic Range Compensation allows for shooting in environments with high contrast between light and shade, such as a building lobby on a sunny day, by automatically correcting the contrast of the video according to the range of scene illumination.
Optimized Design for Broadcast Applications
The camera incorporates high operability optimized for broadcast applications. By pressing a single preset button on operation panel (sold separately), the camera head pans and tilts very smoothly while simultaneously zooming, allowing for on-air movements similar to manually-operated cameras. Also, it utilizes HD-SDI output, which enables it to acquire images from a distance of up to 328.1' (100m).
Water- and Dust-Resistant for Indoor/Outdoor Applications
With a water- and dust-resistant design featuring an IP55 rated enclosure, this camera can be installed in challenging locations and is not affected by environmental conditions.
Fast, Quiet, and Precise Pan & Tilt Movements
The XU-81 PTZ Camera combines smooth, fast, and highly precise movement. In normal mode, operational movement has a noise rating of NC<30, making it suitable for quiet indoor environments. In high-speed mode, the movements of the pan-tilt mechanism are accelerated by 50%, which is valuable in circumstances where high speed is required.
Upright/Inverted Mounting Option
The camera can be mounted upright or inverted (ceiling mount). In either position, the picture image will automatically flip when the tilt angle reaches 90°.
Compact Size and Weight
The camera includes a handle for convenient portability, and weighs only 14.5 lb (6.6kg), making setup almost effortless.
Locally Switchable Output/Control
You can select either the 1080i or 720p HD output to match your existing systems. Additionally, control can be toggled between the RS-232 and RS-422 interfaces, making the camera adaptable to new as well as existing multi-camera environments.
Low-Light Capability / Night Mode
When shooting under low-light conditions, this camera can acquire extra brightness by using its slow-shutter function (frame accumulation). The black & white mode without the IR cut filter will also support shooting in near-darkness.
