The Hitachi HV-D30-S4 is a high-end CCTV camera optimized for a range of industrial imaging environments such as factory automation, medical, and security. Driving the camera's powerful performance is a 3CCD imager operating in combination with advanced A/D converter and DSP functions. As a result, images are of exceptional clarity, color fidelity, and signal stability. Hitachi also provided this camera with features unique to the image processing industry. These include a 6-vector color corrector for accurate color representation, and an external trigger input for activating image capture from an external device. Also of note is the camera's compact cube form, so that it can be easily integrated in tight fitting areas.
Outstanding Image Quality
High sensitivity and high resolution are achieved through the use of three 1/3 inch CCD's, each with 410,000 picture elements. Together with the 12-bit analog to digital (A/D) converter and 14-bit accelerated DSP a horizontal resolution of 800TV lines and a high signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) of 64 dB is obtained with the use of dynamic noise reduction (DNR). Clear high-quality low-noise images are now possible even in a high gain mode.
Digital Signal Processor
A 3rd generation Digital Signal Processor (DSP) chip utilizing Hitachi's most recent processing technology (0.18µm, internal core, 1.8V drive, and 3 million gates) is contained on a single newly developed ultra LSI (large scale integration) chip. The new DSP enables the camera to achieve its small size, low power consumption, and high stability.
6-Vector Color Corrector
A six-vector color corrector allows independent adjustment of the hue and saturation of the primary and secondary colors so that optimum color fidelity can be maintained.
Color Detail Adjustment
A versatile color detail adjustment circuit enables the selection and independent adjustment of detail in two separate colors. This function can be used as a "flesh tone detail" circuit for smoothing human complexion, or for enhancing a color contour for increased visibility.
Dynamic Chroma Compensation
Dynamic Chroma Compensation is provided to maintain proper color saturation in scenes with high luminous levels. Dynamic range is expanded allowing high quality reproduction of outdoor and other difficult scenes.
Intelligent Auto Level Control (ALC)
Intelligent Auto Level Control (ALC) can be selected to allow unattended operation over a wide range of light levels. Digital light metering, CPU controlled automatic gain control (AGC), lens iris, and an auto electronic shutter (AES) operate under continuous control to compensate for varying light levels. Auto Tracking White Balance (ATW) can also be selected to maintain proper color temperature with changing light levels. Note: AES functions continuously only with a manual override lens.
Flare Compensation & Picture Polarity
Flare Compensation can be adjusted to compensate for color changes in dark areas, improving color fidelity, when a zoom lens is used on the camera. Picture polarity can be selected as normal (positive) or negative, to suit the imaging requirements.
Multiple Video Outputs
A full complement of video outputs is provided on the camera. Outputs include composite, Y/C, RGB, or Y/ R-Y/ B-Y. Simultaneous output of composite, Y/C and an additional component signal is possible, utilizing two separate output connectors.
The camera can be synchronized with external devices using the genlock input or by use of external HD and VD signals. Composite sync, HD and VD signals can be output for use with other equipment.
External Trigger Signal
An External Trigger Signal can be used to provide the capture of an image. Several trigger modes are available to suit the intended application. A long term integration mode of up to 8 seconds can be used to capture images at extremely low light levels.
RS-232C Remote Control
An RS-232C port is provided for bi-directional communications with an external device, allowing complete control, setup and operation of all camera functions.
