Vaddio's RoboSHOT 12 QMini System is a professional quality PTZ camera with fine detail and quality color reproduction packaged with a Quick-Connect USB Control unit. It's suitable for small to medium-sized rooms, houses of worship, medium auditorium A/V systems, small to medium distance learning classrooms, live event theaters, and lecture theaters with lecture capture. The key features of the camera are Tri-Synchronous Motion; Range-Set for setting optical limits; and the combination of an advanced image sensor, lens, and ISP (image signal processor).
Paired with the camera is the Quick-Connect USB Mini control unit, which uses the Vaddio EZCamera Cat-5 Cable System to transport HSDS (differential video), power, and control to and from the camera over standard Cat-5 cabling up to 100' in length with virtually no latency or loss in video quality. The USB Mini provides 720p/30 video over USB using UVC (Universal Video Class) drivers, so you can connect the device to your computer with confidence that it will work.
The Tri-Synchronous Motion
algorithm in the RoboSHOT cameras is capable of moving all three
(pan, tilt, and zoom) axes simultaneously. The algorithm calculates the
position and velocity of the smooth, direct-drive motor movements
between the presets so pan, tilt, and zoom arrive at the preset subject
The camera incorporates an Exmor 1/2.8", 2.34 Megapixel, Full HD (1080p/60) high-speed,
low noise CMOS image sensor combined with a new ISP, which produces vivid, realistic, and accurate color with fast and sharp automatic focus and auto iris routines.
The camera uses a single control arm for pan and tilt movements. Both
ends of the cast control arm are anchored with silent and smooth BLDC (brushless DC) direct drive motors. These motors provide ultra-accurate and fast camera positioning and are capable of the slowest of crawls, which are suitable for on-air use.
IR sensors are built into the front of the RoboSHOT to receive IR signals from the IR Remote
Commander supplied with the camera. The IR sensors sit behind the Makrolon IR Window on the front of the base.
Ethernet port and a built-in web server, which allows the user to control the
camera functions on an internal web page with a browser from anywhere in the world, or in the same room, over your IP network. Telnet, IR Remote and RS-232 control for the camera are available to satisfy almost any system control requirements.
Quick Connect USB Mini
The USB Mini interface has two modes: Video Streaming Mode and Web Control Mode. While using the Web Control Mode, the video image is not available for preview. For this reason, the IR Remote Commander may be the best way to control the camera in real-time. If camera control via web browser is desired, use the web server inside the RoboSHOT camera. The camera is capable of concurrent video and control in real-time.
The USB Mini will automatically show up as a native USB 2.0 device on the connected computer. If not prompted to allow the device as your primary UVC video source, it may be required to configure it as such in the operating system of the streaming/capture computer.
Serial RS-232 output on RJ-45 connects via Cat-5 to the camera's RS-232 input on the camera.
Control signals from the embedded web server are sent via RS-232 to the camera over this control port.
EZ-POWER VIDEO: Simultaneously sends power to the camera to and returns HSDS (differential)
video from the camera to generate USB 2.0 (UVC) video for the connected PC.
The mounting flange provides for surface mounting the USB Mini (under table or in cable
tray) and easy access to the USB connection for laptop or computer.
