NAB Show: Vaddio Spotlights Single CCD HD Robotic Cam
Vaddio unveiled its first single CCD HD Robotic PTZ camera (ClearView HD-18) at this week’s show, which includes a 1.3 megapixel imaging sensor, a glass multi-element wide dynamic zoom lens (18x optical), a tally light and a 1.8-lux rating, providing images in an array of HD video applications.
Based in Minneapolis, Vaddio said the HD-18 is currently the only multi-format PTZ camera that delivers component HD in 1080p, 1080i or 720p, and simultaneous SD video. The camera is designed to offer high-torque, micro-stepper precision robotic performance with a smooth pan/tilt operation for accurate camera movement and control. (The HD-18 is compatible with all Polycom or Tandberg videoconferencing codecs.)
Vaddio said it designed the HD-18 to fill a void in the robotic camera market by providing a single CCD, HD PTZ camera with a high-power zoom lens.
