Vaddio RoboSHOT 12 overview

  • 1Description

Vaddio's RoboSHOT 12 QUSB 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, the Quick-Connect USB control unit 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' with virtually no loss in video quality or latency. The USB interface provides simultaneous HDMI and HD component output, or you can stream over the USB output using MJPEG or H.264. The interface supports universal USB 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 simultaneously.
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 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.
The multi-colored LED indicates the use states of the camera:
  • Purple LED is for Boot-up and Standby modes.
  • Blue LED is for normal operation and is a power on, ready condition.
  • The blue LED will blink when the camera receives a valid IR command.
  • Solid red LED is to indicate a tally function illuminating when the camera is on-air.
  • Blinking red LED indicates a fault condition.
  • Yellow LED illuminates during a firmware update.
Interface Unit
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 webserver are sent via RS-232, or RS-232 from external controllers is relayed to the camera over this control port.
EZ-POWER VIDEO: RJ-45 jack used to supply 24 VDC power to the camera and return differential video from the camera on Cat-5 cable up to 100' away.
Analog component video output on a DE-15 (HD15) connector (resolution is set on the back of the camera). The YPbPr output resolution will be the same as the HDMI output resolution. SD video resolutions (Y/C and CVBS formats) are not supported by the Quick-Connect USB Interface; however, some progressive frame rates are supported by the analog component SD video output.
The digital video output on the HDMI connector can either be YCbCr color space (normal HDMI mode) or can be changed to DVI-D color space (sRGB) for older monitors and devices. The HDMI and YPbPr outputs work simultaneously and are the same resolution (set at the camera).
The Ethernet jack streams video (up to 1080p/30 H.264 and can be set from the internal web pages much like the HD-USB Camera. The resolutions are available in a three (3) stage quality format: (High Quality, Good Quality, and Standard Quality targets) and includes a range of CIF to 1080p/30.
The USB 2.0 is on a Type-B female jack and connects to a PC running a soft-client video conferencing system or video capture software that uses UVC (USB Video Class) standard drivers. No other USB 2.0 drivers are required to plug the QC-USB into a computer and have it work. The UVC drivers will auto negotiate the top resolution that the PC and QC-USB can accomplish together and auto-implement.
