STEMMER IMAGING can now offer the aggressively priced VB-2 HD camera. Based on the highly successful Sony FCB-H11 10x zoom module, the camera provides component HD to 1080i.
Measuring just 70mm in diameter and 90mm in length, the camera is an ideal choice for a variety of industrial, multi-media and broadcast applications that require a high performance camera in a lightweight, miniature package. The onboard microphone makes the unit suitable for video communication systems and connectivity can be customised to ensure easy connection to existing video conferencing equipment.
The powerful 10x zoom lens also contains a day/night switching function, turning the camera into an IR sensitive device for low light applications. The splitter box supplied allows all signals from the 1.5m cable to be routed to appropriate locations and can also be upgraded to include an optional HDSDI interface board.
Remote control of all features and functions is achieved using Sony’s widely used Visca protocol. The camera is provided with a flexible bracket which allows convenient mounting on the top of a monitor, a desktop or tripod. For locations that challenge the standard zoom range, wide angle or tele- converters can be attached using the 37mm filter thread.
