The Vaddio WallView HD-19 PTZ Camera (Black) with Quick-Connect DVI/HDMI SR Interface 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 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 sends high-quality HD video (1080p, 1080i, and 720p are selectable) to the rest of the video system.
The Quick-Connect DVI/HDMI SR Interface connects to the HD-19 via a single Cat-5e cable (maximum length is 100'). The interface supplies power to the camera and returns HD video from the camera. Its video outputs include YPbPr for analog video and a selectable digital DVI-D/HDMI 1.3 output (HDMI is via an optional adapter). The Quick-Connect relays RS-232 controls to the camera and includes a daisy-chain control port. The interface's IR forwarding functions in both modulated and non-modulated formats extend the reach of IR remotes included with many popular videoconferencing systems.
